As already described in our updates in April and May, we are continuing to work hard on reducing the friction coefficient subsequent to the surface treatment of the Wet Handling Track. In the future the track will once more meet the requirements of our customers and can be used again to its full extent within a short time.
Today we would like to inform you about the current status and provide further information on the measures:
After further intensive treatment we were able to reduce the grip of the skid-pad to a BPN value of mid-40 as well as in the front area from the presentation area to the skid-pad to a BPN value of early 50 and in the rear area from the skid-pad to the entrance to roundabout 2 to a BPN value of mid-50. Our intention is a homogeneous value on the entire wet handling course. We are therefore continuing with dual machine use in coordination with the test operation in multiple shifts.
In this context, we ask our customers to please consult with Customer Service about the use of the Wet Handling Track in advance in order to avoid delays in these measures.
We would like to point out once again that the Transverse Aquaplaning module on the Wet Handling Track is almost at its original state and can therefore be used without restrictions.
