What is a wear-resistant surface?
A wear-resistant surface facilitates safe use of the surface, as well as protection of the underlying structure from wear and tear. Wear-resistant surfaces on FRP Bridge Decks are mad of, among other things, infill materials such as fire-dried sand, emery or porphyry. The size of these aggregated, fine, ferrous mineral grains varies between 0.7 and 3 mm, depending on the application. Together, the wear-resistant surface and granules act provide non-slip properties and facilitate safe use of the FRP Bridge Deck. Moreover, the wear-resistant surface also protects the underlying structure.
Applying the wear-resistant surface to FRP bridge deck
Applying the wear-resistant surface to an FRP Bridge Deck is done fully automatically and conditioned in our factory. Because we apply the wear-resistant surface in-house, it is possible for you, the customer, to put together the wear-resistant surface of your choice. In addition, we can perform this work in a in a short period of time. When composing your wear-resistant surface, you can choose from different colours and, depending on application, available grain sizes. This page lists some of our most popular wear-resistant surface combinations.
Intensive testing of wear-resistant surface for FRP Bridge Deck
We have developed the method we use to apply a wear-resistant surface on our FRP Bridge Deck in close cooperation with our supplier Resiplast. Based on intensive testing and decades of experience, this method guarantees reliable non-slip and long-life wear-resistant surfaces. As a manufacturer of FRP, we can, therefore, offer a multi-year warranty on our FRP Bridge Deck wear-resistant surfaces.
In case of unforeseen events and vandalism, our FRP Bridge Deck wear-resistant surfaces are easily repaired. For example, we have developed a method with which we can professionally repair damage almost invisibly.
