Paver / Road Finishing

Road finishing chains, also known as paver chains or asphalt chains, are specialized industrial chains used in the construction and maintenance of roads, highways, and other paved surfaces. These chains play a crucial role in the final stages of the road construction process, particularly in the application and finishing of asphalt or concrete.

Engineered with precision to ensure strength, durability, and resistance to wear and corrosion

Ewart paver chains are made from high-quality alloy steel to withstand the demanding conditions of road construction. They are engineered with precision to ensure strength, durability, and resistance to wear and corrosion. The chains consist of interconnected links, often with attachments or flights that engage with the asphalt or concrete material.

Road finishing chains are primarily used in paver machines, which are specialized equipment designed to lay and spread asphalt or concrete evenly on the road surface. The chains are mounted on the paver machine and work in conjunction with other components to achieve a smooth and uniform pavement. As the paver machine moves forward, the road finishing chains are responsible for spreading the asphalt or concrete material evenly across the road width. The chains with attached flights help to regulate the flow of material, ensuring a consistent layer thickness. They also contribute to the levelling process by distributing the material evenly and maintaining the desired surface grade.

Paver chains need to be properly tensioned to maintain their performance and prevent slack or excessive movement. Tensioning systems, such as sprockets and tensioning wheels, ensure that the chains remain tight and properly engaged with the paver machine. Additionally, the speed of the chains can be adjusted to match the paving speed, allowing for precise control over the application process.
The ultimate goal of road finishing chains is to achieve a smooth and uniform surface finish. The properly adjusted chains, along with other components of the paver machine, help to eliminate irregularities, bumps, and gaps in the asphalt or concrete layer. This results in a high-quality road surface that provides optimal driving conditions and extends the lifespan of the road.
