Except for the milled and residual application rates. As shown in these figures and HMA surface, the no-tacked cores failed during extraction due to its high roughness, the milled HMA surface provided due to the poor bonding at the interface. This emphasizes the highest ISSs, followed by the PCC surface. In most cases, the importance of using a tack coat material at the interface the old HMA surface provided greater interface strength than to avoid poor bonding between the layers. To balance the did the new HMA surface.
