In December of 2019 Skidabrader had the opportunity to texture 8 sections of the National Center for Asphalt Technology Test Track (NCAT).
Friction and Contaminant Testing for
Highways and Runways
Experimental Feature Project
Number MD 1301
Evaluation of Surface Abrasion
Rijkswaterstaat's Innovation Test Centre (ITC) was asked by Blastrac to validate this method for use on main roads in the Netherlands. This report describes the validation trial and the conclusions.
We are pleased to announce that the friction issues associated with the overlay on Runway 13/31 have been resolved.
