Abstract : Fiberglass reinforced resin surfacing materials were selected and verified, operational usage studies performed and two surfacing systems employing resin surfacing material were developed as a parallel effort: (1) a high rate system with truck mounted equipment; and (2) a low rate system with trailer mounted equipment. The high rate system has the capability to surface an area of 10,000 square feet with two pounds per square foot surfacing, within one hour and while utilizing not more than nine operating personnel. The low rate system has the capability to surface an area of 2,000 square feet with two pounds per square foot surfacing, within one hour and while utilizing not more than five operating personnel.
