2.RS-1 should apply a minimum of 1 liter per square meter

3.RS-1 should apply a minimum of 10 hours before laying top course

4. As soon as RS-1 prime coat starts settling, a layer of crushed sand 8 to 12 kg/m2 shall be spread and rolled over with pneumatic tire roller till no further bleeding of emulsion occur

5. The bond breaker layer shall be made moist by a light sprinkling of water before the pavement course.
