ALTERRA™ High Friction Surfacing Treatment

ALTERRA™ HFS is a polymer system designed to provide a durable driving surface with sustained friction resistance. While ALTERRA™ HFS may be applied on concrete, asphalt, steel, FRP composite and timber surfaces, it is most suitable for pavement, bridge deck and bike path projects with high friction demands.

ALTERRA™ HFS Benefits:

  • Provides skid resistance when used with specified aggregates
  • Adhesion to concrete, steel, asphalt and FRP composites
  • Long-lasting
  • Withstands minor movements
  • Quick process for high-traffic areas
