Additional info

After prolonged storage, it may be necessary to expose the bag of the Cold Lay Macadam to direct sunlight for 1-2 hours prior to opening to loosen the material and restore workability.

The workability of the Cold Lay Macadam will improve if the outside temperature is above 10°C (50°F).

The more rolling or tamping applied to the surface, the better the resulting surface finish.

The material may be prone to marking during early life and warm conditions.

The time taken by the Cold Lay Macadam to harden fully will depend on the degree of compaction and ambient temperature.

Cold Lay Macadam is available in large 25kg bags.

The bags of Cold Lay Macadam can be stored outside. Always keep the bag sealed when not in use.
