In this post, we will take an in-depth look at how useful Anti-Skid Surfacing can be for road users. There are a number of road markings that help protect drivers from specific hazards, such as a non-slip surface.
Often referred to as high friction surface treatment: The anti-skid surface treatment is used to maintain a high level of slip resistance. Areas where vehicular crashes and car-pedestrian incidents are most frequent are also used for the use of non-slip surfaces. On hairpin bends, driveways, intersections, or streets near schools, for example, you may find slip-resistant paths.
With the following addition: calcine bauxite, anti-skid surface coatings achieve a high level of friction. Bauxite calcine is resistant to abrasion and polishing, so even when exposed to particularly heavy traffic, it can retain its surface texture longer than normal asphalt waves.
You may use anti-skid surfacing in two ways: hot or cold. Thermoplastic binder is needed in warm treatments, and methyl methacrylate (MMA) is required in cold treatments. The path must first be filled uniformly with the binder in order to apply cold surface treatment. The added calcine bauxite is subsequently added.
Meanwhile, in hot treatment, the aggregate is in turn combined with the high temperature bonding agent before being applied with a box of elongated strips on the chosen surface.
