The High Friction Surfacing Treatment (HFST) application process features a fully-automated, mechanically applied, single truck-mounted system - the only one like it in the world!

DBi Services' HFST process is safer, faster, and more cost-effective than any other method of HFST. The mechanical application of the material yields a higher quality product than competing manual methods. In addition, fewer laborers are exposed to live traffic for shorter time periods and the driving public experiences less traffic lane interruptions.
