FricSeal is a superthin wearing course asphalt. It contains a high proportion of carefully selected coarse aggregate, which forms a stone skeleton to produce a mix that has strong structural stability, durability, and resists deformation. FricSeal combines the high-performance polymer modified “FricSeal Binder” and cellulose fibre which together produce a wearing course which resists cracking, and greatly increase the adhesion and cohesion properties of the bitumen into a superior binder that meets the heavy duty requirements of today’s pavement surfaces.
FricSeal provides a uniform textured surface suited to all classes of roads which require a durable and economical treatment to restore texture and ride quality. The textured surface provides high initial skid resistance, a reduction in tyre noise compared to traditional surfacing materials, and reduces tyre spray in wet conditions. FricSeal eliminates the need for large areas of profiling, reducing disruption to traffic during construction.
