Skid-resistance evaluations of seven antihydroplaning test strips were conducted between 15 to 20 November 1973. The test surfaces included a slurry seal, a grooved slurry seal, three test sections of Palmer Pavetread with various groove patterns and two porous friction surfaces, one with an emulsified asphalt and the other with 120-150 PEN asphalt and 5 rubber additive. Results indicate all surfaces provide a significant reduction in hydroplaning potential. A further test program is to be conducted to evaluate the performance of these surfaces under traffic and environmental conditions. Author
