Anti-Skid Road Treatment by Bellstan
High Friction Surfacing (HFS), also known as anti-skid, is a treatment applied to sections of highway which require enhanced abrasion qualities to improve braking performance of motor vehicles. Usually applied to approaches to roundabouts or traffic signals.
A variety of colours are available such as buff, grey, red and green.
There are three types of HFS that Bellstan specialises in:
Hot Applied Thermoplastic Based
Hot Applied Thermoplastic Based System cures the fastest time and allows the road to be returned to use in the shortest time. It suits most good quality well compacted surfaces, including sound Surface Dressing.
Cold Applied 2 Part
Cold Applied 2 Part Epoxy Based System is a thermosetting product and requires ambient heat to cure. It will suit most good quality well compacted Asphalt surfaces, and is very durable, even in the highest stress locations.
Cold Applied Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)
Cold Applied Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) based system sets using a chemical reaction to cure and does not rely on ambient temperature; it can be used down to 0°C and cure in 1-1.5 hours and it will suit most good quality well compacted Asphalt surfaces. MMA is very durable, even in the highest stress locations.
