ACE Fiber®, is pure aramid with a wax treatment. By treating the aramid with wax, the aramid is weighted down and controlled for proper delivery into the asphalt mix. When ACE Fiber enters the asphalt mixing chamber, the wax melts to release the fibers in the right place at the right time. This unique delivery process results in the highest performing blend of Fiber Reinforced Asphalt Concrete (FRAC) in the market.
Tensar® TriAx and BX Geogrids have demonstrated their effectiveness and cost-efficiency in thousands of applications. Over soft ground, TriAx and BX Geogrids enhance the soil’s effective bearing capability by dispersing applied loads more broadly. Over firmer ground, geogrids stiffen and interlock with fill materials by confining aggregate particles inside of its apertures, thus producing a stronger component for enhanced serviceability and more supportive aggregate layers beneath pavements.
Tensar® TriAx Geogrids differ from other geogrids due to their unique triangular structure which delivers advantages in a multitude of stabilization applications. The multidirectional stiffness of these geogrids surpasses that of others. They are designed for superior aggregate interlock and stress transfer, which results in stiffer aggregate layers and greater subgrade protection. The Tensar® TriAx Geogrid delivers longer road life, reduced pavement maintenance, and lower construction costs.
Originally designed for United States military beach landings, Cellular Confinement Systems are three dimensional HDPE grids. They have been used throughout the construction industry for grass parking lots, driveways, boat ramps, maintenance roads, cart paths, walkways and water crossings. As its name implies, it functions by “confining” soils or gravel and thus greatly increasing the load carrying capacity of the base materials.
Soil stabilization is an integral part to any roadway, railway, or load bearing construction project, as poor drainage and co-mingling of materials can lead to rapid structural disintegration and subsequent project failure. With the cost of aggregate continuing to rise, engineers and contractors are looking for a solution that will allow them to continue to provide the structurally sound results customers rely on, without having to raise their prices.
Pavement deterioration begins the moment the asphalt paver pulls away from paving a road, parking lot, or other area of critical transportation infrastructure. The enemies of pavement integrity never rest. Age, oxidation, traffic, and climate are constantly working to undermine the condition of the asphalt pavement that make our roads smooth, reducing them to crack and pot-hole filled obstacle courses in seemingly no-time.
