The ultimate durable skid resisting asphalt

Designed to improve road safety and reduce the risk of accidents, ULTIGRIP provides a coloured, textured finish that improves visibility and skid resistance in high risk locations where the client requirement rules out conventional asphalt.

ULTIGRIP is BBA HAPAS certified as a Clause 942 thin surface course. 



  1. Ultimate skid resistance

    Testing carried out for Tarmac has demonstrated that ULTIGRIP provides superior SCRIM performance to conventional asphalts and comparable skid resistance to typical high friction surfacings.


    ULTIGRIP is available to provide a grey coloured visual finish, however it can also be supplied
    in a buff colour where a more distinctive appearance is required.

  3. Exceptional durability

    Bauxite aggregate and a durable clear binder combine to give a tough, textured finish and long term skid resistance, even on heavily trafficked sites.

  4. Faster completion

    Can be laid quickly in a single pass, reducing costs and minimising disruption to road users.

  5. Reduced risk

    No issues with regard to delamination at any time, as the 40mm layer acts as one homogenous structure, thereby reducing the risk of accidents and costly legal claims.

  6. Reduced Whole Life Costs

    Lower ‘whole life cost’ compared to conventional high skid resisting surfacing techniques when
    considering typical product lifespans and actual construction costs. ULTIGRIP can also be reliably installed all year round, thereby eliminating potential aborted work costs which can be incurred when dealing with thin applied treatments.

  7. Ultimate support

    ULTIGRIP is available for installation by our own expert Contracting division, or by selected approved external contractors who evaluate each site to make sure our clients get the right solution and then deliver it to the highest industry standards.
