Important qualities of aggregates used for thin maintenance surface (TMS) include an aggregates wear and skid resistance, shape, gradation, and size. The wear and skid resistance of an aggregate influences the lifetime of the individual aggregate particles, and thus the lifetime of the TMS. A TMS’s effectiveness is impacted by the shape, gradation, and size of the aggregate used for the surfacing material along with the lifetime of the aggregate.
