Epoxy For Roads?


Saw this article in the paper where they are using a expoxy to resurface a road. Says it dries in about 3hrs. Has anybody seen it used in their area? I would be wondering about the traction on it and how it would hold up to being gone over by the ice graders.

Wow, what a coinsidence. I went to Pa. today to look at such a system. It will dry and can be opened to traffic in 3 hours. There are a few differnt end products depending on the application. But the products I saw today arent crerated fro large scale road covering. Its use is primarily for cross walks, parks and high traction/ low slip. or as a special exposed stone surface on a high end residential drive which is my market.

Any way I thought it was very cool and I want to find a place to demo it

I went to see a system done by a company called camellion ways. It was very cool but real costly and I dont know if I can resell at a profit.
