EcoGrip Type 1 | Cold Applied High Friction Surfacing

EcoGrip Type 1 cold applied high friction surfacing is a BBA/HAPAS approved surfacing system which comprises an odourless, low toxicity two-part epoxy binder system dressed with road grade calcined bauxite.  With rapid curing times, EcoGrip cold applied high friction surfacing can be laid quickly and easily over both old and new road surfaces, minimising traffic disruption and traffic management costs.

The bonded surface dressing of calcined bauxite aggregate delivers a sustainable and durable surface ideal for use in highly trafficked, high stress areas.  Type 1 high friction surfacing is proven to reduce accidents and save lives by reducing braking distance and improving vehicle control.
