ASPHALTEX

ASPHALTEX is biaxially oriented (biaxial) synthetic geogrid made of polyester (ASPHALTEX PET), polyvinyl alcohol (ASPHALTEX PVA), basalt (ASPHALTEX BASALT) or glass (ASPHALTEX GLASS) with bitumen coating.

Application:

  • Reinforcement of asphalt concrete pavement

Geogrid ASPHALTEX improves the elastic modulus of a roadbed while distributing loads for greater roadway longevity and performance.

  • Protection from Reflective Cracks

The use of ASPHALTEX  in an asphaltic pavement system mitigates the risk of reflective crack formation. The geocomposite reinforcement layer redistributes stresses horizontally in the overall system, thus preventing stress from concentrating and migrating upward to the surface as a crack.

  • Prevention of  Wheel Track Rutting

The high-strength performance of ASPHALTEX redistributes loads across the entire area of the reinforced road surface. This prevents the formation of wheel ruts, even in high temperature environments.
