UK-based Pro-Teq Surfacing has recently developed a new type of resurfacing technology that illuminates at night. The new resurfacing product is called Starpath. It is a liquid-based product that is mixed with natural earth aggregate material. The surface that is sprayed will become non-slip, water resistant and will glow. It has made the Cambridge Park in the UK the world's first self-powered sustainable path. The Starpath helps lessen the risk of accidents of collisions. Pedestrians and cyclists will be more safe with a lit path even when it is pitch black outside. A thirty minute application of the product will extend the life cycle of existing paths and lanes because it gives a new protective top layer. Starpath hardly interrupts the public because it is ready to use in a matter of a few short hours. With this type of technology, energy and money will be saved across the globe.
