Road Retexturing and Your Safety

Have you ever been driving down the highway and thought to yourself, “I wonder how it is that my car doesn’t slide all over the road at 70 miles per hour (113 kilometers per hour)?” Chances are, this is the last thought on your mind and instead you are worried about making it home for dinner on time! Thankfully, there are companies and people that have thought about this and developed systems in order to improve road safety.

Over time, concrete and asphalt pavements develop poor friction characteristics due to:

  • Wear on the surface
  • Poor surface draining abilities
  • Build-up of tar, asphalt and other contaminates

Using hydroblasting equipment, this build-up can be removed effortlessly, restoring the surface skid resistance values and texture depth to desirable levels. The road re-texturing process reduces the risk of wet skid crashes by improving the friction levels, creating safer roads. Stripe Hog Waterblasting Road Re-texturing

Road Retexturing – Before and After

It takes a consistent effort and commitment to maintain the safety of our roadways. A part of this effort involves using water blasting technology to reinstate friction levels and continues to be a major focus in both the United States and around the world. With over 250 million drivers in the United States alone, all efforts exerted to increase the safety of our roads are vital.
