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 at high risk locations like road junctions. 

Also BBA approved as a HAPAS Cl942 Thin Surface Course.  



  1. Ultimate skid resistance

    Similar SCRIM level to conventional antiskid products.
  2. Ultimate visibility

    The buff coloured visual finish provides a similar appearance to commonly used anti-skid products, thereby providing the required demarcation as well as comparable skid resistance.
  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

    Typically lasts three times longer than alternative anti-skid surfaces, reducing the risk of accidents and costly legal claims.
  6. Reduced Whole Life Costs

    Lower ‘whole life cost’ compared to conventional surfacing / anti-skid approach when considering typical product lifespan and actual construction costs.
  7. Ultimate support

    At Tarmac, technical excellence comes as standard. ULTIGRIP is only available for installation by our own expert Contracting division who evaluate each site to make sure our clients get the right solution and then deliver it to the highest industry standards.
