Road rollers use their weight to compress the surface, and can also use vibration to achieve compression as well depending on the vehicle.
Rollers are used during the entire process of road construction, from flattening uneven ground through to laying the road base and then the wearing course, by using different configurations in conjunction with other types of machinery.

Surface Dressing is a long established proven highway maintenance technique. In simple terms it involves the even spray application of an emulsion bituminous binder through a purpose built spray tanker onto the existing road surface followed immediately by the even application of aggregate chippings to 'dress' the binder. Surface Dressing restores skid resistance and seals the road surface to prevent pot hole formation.
Asphalt is added to the paver from a dumper or tipper truck and is then processed by the machinery until it is spread over the width of the road surface providing the first stage of construction and the initial compaction of the raw material.
The machine moves at a steady pace to ensure an even application of material and therefore a smooth finish to the road surface.
