This report describes an investigation conducted for the development of an improved flexible prefabricated membrane surfacing suitable as an expedient dustproofing and waterproofing medium for soil subgrades used as forward-area airfields and road surfacings. This was accomplished by means of: laboratory tests of PUC membranes, adhesives, and nonskid compounds to determine physical properties, and skid tests simulating C-130 braking action on nonskidcoated PUC membranes placed on a soil subgrade to determine skid resistance and durability.
