    Hola a todo(a)s

    Me gustaría saber si la traducción del siguiente contexto es correcta.

    Spread sufficient sand over the surface to bolt up excess asphalt and prevent it from picking up in any traffic.

    Esparza arena suficiente sobre la superficie para absorber el exceso de asfalto y evitar sea arrastrado por el tránsito.

    En caso de que la información no sea suficiente, aquí les va el párrafo completo:
    The asphalt primer should preferably be entirely absorbed by the base course and therefore require no sand cover. If however, the asphalt has not been completely absorbed 24 hours after application, spread sufficient sand over the surface to bolt up excess asphalt and prevent it from picking up in any traffic.


    Las gracias por adelantado,
    Salu2

    It is a typo for 'blot up'.

    So yes, absorber or secar.
