    A57 Liverpool Road, Salford, Ralumac HT Scheme

    Ralumac HT was chosen for this scheme due to it being a BBA approved double coat, single pass application. The first coat regulates and seals the existing surface, followed by a second coat using a 10mm aggregate. After compaction and embedment the total thickness of this process was 18mm thick, giving the client reduced levels compared to using a traditional overlay.
