Surfaces must be free from weeds, standing water, dust, dirt, loose material and oil spillage. Any potholes should be patched and any cracks should be filled with Colas Leoseal R or a Leoseal R and sand mortar mixture.


Leochip VLS can be poured from a watering can and spread by hand using an ordinary notched rubber bladed squeegee or sprayed through a specially adapted nozzle.

It should be applied at a spread rate of 1.3 to 1.8l/ m² depending upon the texture and porosity of the surface and choice of chipping size (2.8/6.3 Gc 85/20f1 chippings are recommended).

Leochip VLS should be applied in temperatures >10°C and dry conditions should prevail for at least 12 hours after application.

N.B: Not all aggregates are suitable for use with Bitumen Emulsion and advice regarding aggregate suitability can be obtained by contacting our National Sales Office.


Depending on the texture and porosity of the surface to be treated Leochip VLS will achieve the following approximate coverage rates.

25kg = 14 to19m²

200kg = 110 to155m².

Typical aggregate coverage is 7-10kg/m².


Leochip VLS is available in 200kg drums or 25kg containers.


Protect from frost. Drums should be rolled frequently to avoid separation. For further information please refer to BS434-2:2006. Section 5; Clause 5.2 Storage.
