Thin Surface Course
- Thin Surface Courses (TSC’s) are high stone content materials for Surface Course applications. They are durable, deformation resistant, reduce noise and spray and offer excellent ride quality when compared with traditional Hot Rolled Asphalt.
- Lagan TSC’s are characterised by the use of Polymer Modified Binders (PMB) to further enhance their durability and strength along with high PSV aggregates for long term levels of skid resistance. The Lagan TSC’s are collectively known as Texsurf and are available as 14 mm, 10 mm and 6 mm nominal sizes.
- The introduction of new European Standards for bituminous materials in 2008 has led to the 10 mm asphalt and 6 mm asphalt sizes falling under EN13108-2 Asphalt Concrete for very thin layers.
- Texsurf can be produced to comply with the National Roads Authority requirements and it has been used extensively on major construction schemes for many years.
