BBA Agrément Certificate
Truegrip BT is a high friction surfacing system meeting the demanding requirements of a BBA/HAPAS Type 1 approved anti-skid surfacing for external applications.
Conren Truegrip High-Friction Surfacing System comprises a two-component modified epoxy binder and a graded (1mm to 3mm) calcined bauxite aggregate. The system is available in three grades:
Hot applied – suitable for machine application to bituminous surfaces
Handlay BT – suitable for hand mixing and laying to bituminous surfaces
Handlay EP – suitable for hand mixing and laying to concrete surfaces
Conren Truegrip High-Friction Surfacing System is satisfactory for use as a high-friction surfacing on highways with surface texture depths of between 0.5 and 2.0mm, measured using the sandpatch test as defined in BS 598-105: 1990.
The system is classified as Type 1, in accordance with the results of the performance tests as defined in Table 1 of the Guidelines Document for the Assessment and Certification of High Friction Surfaces for Highways.
Installation of the Conren Truegrip High-Friction Surfacing System must be carried out by BBA approved installers under the Assessment and Surveillance Scheme for Installers of High-Friction Surfaces for Highways.
