Skid resistant road surfacing
Antiskid Industries supplies and installs Omnigrip high friction road surface treatments. Better known as Omnigrip HF (HFST) which is a veneer overlay applied to asphalt and / or concrete roads and highways to improve surface friction, resulting in decreased braking distances and threshold impact speeds in emergency situations.
Comprised of a thermosetting modified compound which exhibits plastoelastic properties the OMNIGRIP HF system is engineered to hold high PSV aggregate permanently in position so that it doesn’t become embedded or displaced under the heaviest of braking, ensuring consistently high skid resistance and reduced braking distances over the design life of the system.
Upon curing the OMNIGRIP HF system is resistant to all road contamination, including oil, petrol and de-icing salts with excellent adhesion to asphalt and concrete surfaces.
Antiskid Omnigrip HF surfacing is an established, proven process for saving lives by ensuring the highest level of skid resistance onto any road surfaces.
Antiskid is a specialist company for installing Omnigrip HF and is the preferred installer with its well trained operators and its own specialist plant and equipment.
- Hi Friction # SRV > 70
- Increased Surface Texture
- Up to 33% Reduction in Vehicle Braking Distances
- Reduced Threshold Braking Speeds
- Fuel & Oil Resistant
- Accident Reduction
- Concrete / Asphalt Surface
The application consists of calcined bauxite aggregate held by specialised epoxy-modified resin binder to ensure high-tyre forces can’t remove the aggregate.
The high-friction surfacing is laid over an existing sound substrate. The surface prior to treatment is thoroughly cleaned of all grime and oils to maximise adhesion.
Once the resin is applied followed by the calcined bauxite, the surface is then left to cure for approximately 4 hours. Once brushed clean the surface is then trafficable for normal use.
