Most The survey questions focused on tack coat materials used of the survey results were presented in terms of percentage in recent construction projects and the percentage of their of respondents. Two questions on the questionnaire consid- use. Figure 28 was developed by multiplying the percentage ered the weight of each option (i.e., percentage of use for each of use of tack coat materials by the number of responses in option/the importance index of each option). Accordingly, order to evaluate the recent usage.
