Summary:
The objective of this project was to evaluate the performance of PlusRideTM with respect to the following characteristics:
•  De-icing of roadway by elastic deformation;
•  Aging properties as indicated by the reduction of reflective and thermal cracking;
•  Stud-wear resistance due to the elasticity of  PlusRideTM;
•  Skid resistance and resistance to hydroplaning due to a textured surface with protruding rubber particles.
