Coloured Thermoplastic High Friction Surfacing for Cycle Routes
CycleWay material is suitable for all classes of road where high friction, coloured surfacing is specified. It is used on asphaltic surfaces with texture depths of between 0.5mm and 2.0mm, and is ideal for areas where visual demarcation is required for safety/ traffic calming purposes.
CycleWay is available in 3 standard colours; red, green and blue. Hitex pigments are all heavy metal-free.
Please refer to the Relevant Installation Method Statement.

Cycleway Binder is a blend of modified rosin ester,process oil, thermoplastic rubber, ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer and lead-free green pigment.
Cycleway uses 100% granite or basalt aggregate.
Cycleway is a pigmented skid-resistant thermoplastic surfacing material which is ideal for use in the delineation of areas such as bus lanes, cycle lanes, give-ways and in traffic calming schemes. It is the perfect solution for urban and rural networks, providing a durable, maintenance-free and colourfast surface that can be trafficked 15-20 minutes after application. The use of skid-resistant coloured safety surfacing helps to reduce accidents through visually reinforcing the message of conventional road markings & signs.
The bags should be loaded into a preheater/mixer fitted with temperature control. If the mixer requires a colour change it should be thoroughly clear before adding the fresh material. The material must be agitated to avoid aggregate and binder separation. Allow the pigment to disperse thoroughly before application. After melting and mixing, the material should be laid at between 180 ̊c - 210 ̊c by screed shoe 200mm to 600mm wide. Spread rate will vary according to road surface but should be between 125m² and 140m² per tonne. Initial texture depth of the finished surface is typically 1.5mm with a minimum Skid Resistance Value of 60 (SRV) when measured with a pendulum tester.
Resin Bonded Coloured Surfacing for Cycle Routes
VeloGrip is a cycle lane demarcation system specifically designed for use on cycle route schemes. It consists of a two component thermosetting modified epoxy binder dressed with selected aggregates which are pigmented in bold colours. The system gives excellent skid resistance in both wet and dry conditions.
VeloGrip is quick and easy to apply, and is tough and durable to give a long service life.
