Road Aesthetics

The use of colours and natural finishes is now without doubt an extremely important element in the modern construction and landscaping of roads and highways. Blastrac shot blasters can be used on concrete and asphalt roads and highways to remove the surface binder to allow the natural properties, specificities or colours of the aggregates to appear.
