LimeBonded Decorative Surfacing
(LimeBonded High Friction Surfacing)

You are here:

LimeBonded Decorative Surfacing (LimeBonded High Friction Surfacing) is a high performance, flexible polyurethane based anti-slip/anti-skid system for installation onto asphalt and concrete substrates. LimeBonded systems are ideal for all Type 1 Roads (LimeBonded High Friction Surfacing), cycle paths, walkways, drives, pathways (LimeBonded Decorative Surfacing). The benefits of these systems are that they provide an anti-slip/anti-skid surface for up to 10 years. It is also fast curing, has an excellent

Resin & aggregate

LimeBonded systems use an aromatic formulation that provides a strong bonded finish. The performance and appearance of the finished surface is dependent on the aggregates used. The LimeBonded aggregates recommended have been selected for their strength and decorative appearance. LimeBonded Decorative Surfacing aggregates are high performing and available in a variety of colours. When selecting for roads and high traffic areas where high friction surfacing is required it is always advised to use bauxite aggregates. Appearance can be affected by the size of selected aggregates for example when using a larger aggregate such as a 2-5mm the open appearance will show the base resin grinning through.

Please Note:

Natural aggregates may contain small amounts of iron which can produce rust staining when exposed to air and water; standard LimeBonded systems contain aggregates selected where there is very limited experience of staining but iron may be present in any natural aggregate. The presence of iron cannot be identified before use and Limegate Solutions will not accept responsibility for any loss or damage suffered as a result of staining.

LimeBonded contractors

LimeBonded is a specialist product and must only be applied by specialist applicators. Do not apply or allow it to be applied by contractors who do not possess the necessary experience.

Working times & temperatures

Working time is affected by temperature; at temperatures above the maximum recommended 25°c the pot life and working time may be insufficient to allow a wet edge to be maintained.

Do not therefore proceed when product and/or air temperature exceeds recommendations. The air temperature must be monitored during application and work should stop when the temperature exceeds recommendations. Care must be taken to keep materials as cool as possible in warm weather. At low temperatures 5°C and below the resin will not flow sufficiently to achieve a smooth finish and work should not proceed.

Substrate requirements

The substrate should be dry to 75% RH as per BS8204 and free from rising damp.

Concrete: Primer required.
Minimum 25N/mm²

Asphalt: No primer required.

Asphalt or Asphalt Concrete: (macadam)

Should have a bitumen binder recommended to a maximum 90 pen, 40/60 pen. The contractor should be satisfied that the substrate is adequately compacted. Older asphalt or asphalt concrete may be too weak for application. New asphalt or asphalt concrete should be at least 3-4 weeks old before application begins.

Site attendance

When on site Limegate Solutions representatives are if asked, able to give a general indication of the correct method of installing Limegate Solutions products. It is important to bear in mind that Limegate Solutions is a supplier and not an application contractor and it is therefore the responsibility of the contractor and his employer to ensure he is aware of the correct practices and procedures to ensure the correct installation of the product and that liability for its correct installation is with the contractor and not with Limegate Solutions Ltd.
