Highways & Bridges
Reduce wet-weather stopping distance by 30%
This slip and skid resistant surfacing system has the longest track record of any such system, having been originally developed for roads in the late 1980s. Time and again, experience has shown that even after years of use, Bimagrip still performs at its best, without any maintenance required. Whereas lower cost alternatives require frequent re-applications, Bimagrip keeps going - making it a proven cost-effective solution. Projects applied over two decades ago are available for inspection now.
Whether it’s on steel, concrete, asphalt or timber, Bimagrip is easy to lay, fast-setting and incredibly long lasting. Treated areas can be opened to traffic within two hours of application, minimising downtime. The flexible nature of the cured film allows it to move with a substrate that deflects under load, and the underlying built assets are protected indefinitely.
RS Clare developed the first true thermoplastic road marking material back in the 1930s and continues to manufacture a full range of products to this day. Our sister company, Wilson & Scott, applies over 20 million metres of lines per year throughout the UK to highways, cycle and bus lanes, car parks, footpaths, airfields, playgrounds and industrial estates.
At the forefront of road safety, our objective is to supply quality products that reduce the number of accidents on our highways. We supply thermoplastic products to European standards EN 1436, 1871 and 1824 and to customer-specific requirements for a full range of screed, extrusion and spray applications, including the latest generation of heavy metal free pigments and very high performance/enhanced durability road markings. We have great experience in producing road marking products that perform well in the vast range of different global climates.
