This report gives a summary of the main Norwegian and foreign definitions of surface dressings and discusses their aims and functions. The main factors that influence the quality and durability of these surfacings are the quality, the laying and the binder chosen, in relation to weather/climate. It also seems clear that wearing quality and grain size are factors that one should pay more attention to. Research has been performed at several foreign laboratories, on developing methods for calculating optimal amount of binders and aggregates. Some of these methods are described. The report also gives a summary of the specifications employed in the different countries. /TRRL/
