RSTA offers technical introduction course on Slurry Surfacing
A one day course providing a detailed technical introduction to the theory and practice of slurry surfacing is to be held by the Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA) on 20th November 2018 at Grantham.
Slurry seal surfacing is a thin bituminous surface course incorporating bitumen emulsion, graded aggregate and fillers to restore the surface condition on roads, footways, cycle paths, car parks, playgrounds, central reservations, traffic islands and amenity areas.
It is growing in popularity particularly in urban locations for treating road surfaces that need sealing, re-profiling and restoring skid resistance.
In particular, the course will examine the development and benefits of slurry surfacing, site selection and preparation, application and associated standards and industry guidance.
The course is CPD approved by the Chartered Institute for Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institution for Highways Engineers (IHE).
