Uniformity of the Applied Tack Coat to fix non-uniformity is taken); 17% do nothing. The results are illustrated in Figure 48. Most of the respondents, 66%, indicated that the require- ment to have the entire surface covered with tack coat material was the main specification to check for uniformity (see Fig- 4.1.4Findings Related to Tack ure 46). The second most-used requirement was to ensure Coat Application that no nozzles are completely or partially blocked, 34%. The Pavement Failures Related to Improper remaining options ranged from 13% to 26%. Tack Rate/Material More than half of the respondents (56%) reported that they do not change their application rate due to any factor. The respondents reported slippage and delamination of the Almost all of the remaining 44% of respondents who change pavement surface layer as approximately equal to results from their application rate changed them based on the condition poor tack coat type or application, 89% and 87%, respec- of the pavement surface.

Other types of failures included shoving, bottom up stripping due to water intrusion, and flushing/bleeding due to excessive tacking (see Figure 49). Remedy for Non-uniform Tack Coat Application Out of the responses compiled, 70% require the contractor Lab/Field Test Methods to Determine to reapply the tack coat material. Of those responses, 70% the Interface Bond Strength require a lower application rate for the reapplication. The remaining respondents who require reapplication of the tack The vast majority of the respondents, 92%, indicated that no coat material either applied the same rate, or they did not testing is performed to measure the bond strength between specify which approach was taken.
