Surface Dressing

High-quality surface dressing of roads, drives and carparks in West Sussex

At J.C. Allfrey & Co. Ltd, we offer a comprehensive service that includes sweeping, trimming edges and patching potholes, or alternatively just surface dressing or macadam surfacing on areas prepared by others.

Generally, the binder material used is known as K1-70, but we usually use a polymer modified version called Surfix 80. Surfix 80 polymer modified hot bitumen emulsion has increased adhesive capabilities and cohesive qualities which provide better results, proving less susceptible to changes in temperature.
Why surface dressing?
  • Faster and more efficient
  • Economical solution
  • Durable and increases the road’s life span
  • Gives drivers a better grip


We offer a variety of stone chippings and colours including:

  • Brown gravel
  • White gravel
  • Buff gravel
  • Grey limestone
  • Grey granite
  • Pink granite basalt
  • Dark grey basalt
  • Red quartzite

Surface dressing application

The hot binder is then sprayed onto the cleaned and prepared road surface, followed by an even covering of stone chippings (6mm or 10mm single-size materials).

Soon after laying, the stone dressing is rolled with a combination rubber tyred roller.
