SKIDPROOF DYES FOR CONCRETE AND ASPHALT

HALKFRI FAERG TILL BETONG-OCH ASFALTUNDERLAG

Painting concrete and asphalt often results in a lowering of the dry and/or wet friction. By adding about 6% ground quartz, the coefficient of friction is considerably increased. The surface to be covered uses in addition, about 7% of 30 micro meter SiO2. By this means the coefficient of friction obtained for the dyed layer in the wet or dry condition rises accordingly from about 0.6 to 1.2. Other factors, e.g. the binding medium, application technique, consistency of dye, proportion of pigment and surface structure have been shown to have great significance. A connection between the choice of vertical profile and the value of the coefficient of friction has been obtained using the dynamometer method. (Author)
