News: Steelphalt wins national award

By

Rotherham road surface specialist, Steelphalt, has won a major national award for one of its most important products.

SteelPhalt - part of the Harsco group of companies - has been developing and manufacturing high performance asphalt products for the UK road making industry since the 1960s.

And its SteelStop road covering was named Global Slag Product of the Year at the recent 2016 Global Slag Conference and Exhibition in London.

Designed in conjunction with the Ulster University and tested at trial sites across Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster, SteelStop high friction surfacing was developed to help put the brakes on traffic in busy or skid prone areas, providing extra grip for road users and safety benefits for pedestrians.

SteelPhalt surfaces, which are used across the region, uses steel slag, which is a co-product of the steelmaking process, and have a high skid resistance and are also a key tool in increasing road safety in busy areas like the roads around schools and other high traffic volume sites.

The SteelPhalt plant in Sheffield Road, Rotherham, converts steel slag into a surface course for road making.

Dean Raynor, commercial manager at Steelphalt, said: "We are delighted that SteelStop has been recognised by such an important industry body.

"All our road surface products are designed with two important factors always in mind, road safety and the environment, and this award makes it clear that the industry is taking notice of the excellent work being carried out in both these fields in South Yorkshire."
