Use of an epoxy resin/ synthetic aggregate system to impart skid resistance to selected road surfaces

This paper concentrates on the effect of the road surface on vehicle stopping distance. Under emergency conditions stopping distance assumes major importance and, particularly under wet conditions, the road surface plays a major role. Results obtained by the use of extended epoxy resin/ synthetic aggregate systems (shellgrip) overseas are reviewed and a brief description of an Australian section of road incorporating this treatment is given. The saving in accidents achieved show that this rather sophisticated treatment can be justified economically when the true costs of accidents to the community at large are considered (a).
