studied the durability of

Tests conducted on the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) of goods condition of 40 degrees centigrade found no detectable loss of height at the end of scuffing test. Surface flow resistance was also measured at 61, well within the preferred range. A unique combination of hard wearing stone and resin lasts up to 5 times longer than equivalent concrete products.
