Pro-Teq Surfacing (UK) Ltd, developed and patented an innovative pathway re-surfacing methodology called "Starpath”. The product is cost effective to both install and maintain while its seamless surface may be applied to any existing surface, be it concrete, tarmac, timber or any hard stand substrate (solid base). The aggregate material absorbs and stores energy from ambient light (UV rays) during the day, then releases this energy at night allowing the particles to glow.
