SYNTHETIC AGGREGATES OF HIGH RESISTANCE TO POLISHING. PART 1 - GRITTY AGGREGATES

The Road Research Laboratory is carrying out research into the manufacture of synthetic aggregates with an exceptional resistance to polishing by traffic. Such aggregates are required for the surface treatment of difficult road sites where a high resistance to skidding is required and where the polishing action of traffic is most severe. This report describes the part of this research which has been directed into the manufacture of a class of gritty aggregates which owe their polishing resistance to the differential wear of hard grit particles dispersed in a softer matrix. /TRRL/
