This type of surfacing works by combining an epoxy resin binder with calcined bauxite aggregate. The aggregate improves tyre grip by creating numerous high contact pressure points to reduce the chances of vehicles skidding.


Better known as anti-skid surfacing, high friction surfacing from is available in a wide variety of colours and can be laid as a discreet road surface that blends with the environment or a bold and bright surface to draw attention to a particular road hazard. It is fully compatible with line marking for accident blackspots or road hazard identification.


HMS are approved to the BBA HAPAS Type 1 certification scheme for hot and cold high friction surfacing installation. Only BBA Type 1 surfacing processes are permitted to install high friction road surfacing on motorways or trunk roads. 


HMS is a BBA approved installer (number 5020) and therefore satisfies the Highways England specifications that both the product and the installer needs to be accredited by BBA to install high friction surfacing.
