A cape seal is a combination of a single spray seal application followed by slurry seal or micro-surfacing. The slurry or micro-surfacing application helps fill the voids between the aggregate. The slurry bonds the aggregate to prevents loss, while the aggregate prevent undue traffic abrasion of the slurry. Cape seals are often used because of the aesthetics of the finished surface. Inverted cape seals are often used as a rut filler followed by a single aggregate application for an economical solution to wheel path pavement deformation.
