6.6.2 Compaction Equipment
The compaction equipment for asphalt work includes:
- vibratory steel-wheeled rollers – most commonly used for initial rolling and basic compaction
- pneumatic-tyred rollers – used for secondary compaction and sealing of the surface
- impact compactors such as vibratory plates, hand tampers, etc. – generally only used for areas inaccessible to rollers, and minor works.
