Industrial, Heavy Duty & High Stress Applications

SteelSurf - for High-Stress Applications

SteelSurf is a unique product developed by SteelPhalt for high stress applications.

It is designed to resist deformation caused by heavy loading of specialist vehicles used in steel ladle transport. It is also effective at maintaining surface stability under the slower-moving scrubbing action of heavy vehicle tyres.

Other heavy industries such as coal, electricity, ports and sugar manufacturing also use the product.

These same durable properties have since proved popular with Local Authorities for use in high stress locations such as road intersections and industrial estates.

South Yorkshire County Council was the first to adopt SteelSurf and other surrounding highway authorities have followed suit.

High Stress Materials for Various Applications
Warehouse Floors
Warehouse Floors

SteelSurf is highly suited for use on warehouse floors, which are subject to the sharp turning motion of mobile loading equipment and heavy loads during long periods, e.g. stacks of large paper rolls. SteelSurf achieves negligible chipping loss owing to its binder adhesion.

Urban Highways
Urban Highways

High volumes of slow-moving channelised traffic can cause premature road surface failure, a problem which several Local Authorities have solved by using SteelSurf. SteelSurf is proven to withstand the demands of the modern urban transportation network because of its high durability and resistance to deformation.

Steelworks & Plants
Steelworks & Plants

Owing to its high durability and resistance to deformation, SteelSurf has been successfully used in extremely high stress conditions such as steel mills. SteelSurf is proven to withstand the heavy axle loads and slow turning forces common in this environment.

SteelSurf Laboratory Tests

SteelSurf shows excellent skid resistance over the investigation level when tested under SteelPhalt’s grip testing programme, especially through the summer months.

It is also effective at maintaining surface stability under the slower-moving scrubbing action of heavy vehicle tyres. Other heavy industries such as coal, electricity, docks, ports and sugar manufacturing also find that SteelSurf delivers the durability vital to keep production traffic running smoothly.
