ADFORS high-performance glass fibert

GlasGrid Pavement Reinforcement Grids retard reflective cracking by a factor of 2 to 3 times by turning crack stresses horizontally to dissipate the stress. GlasGrid systems extend pavement life by up to 300%.

Reinforcement grids are available in several different styles: traditional GlasGrid, GlasGridTF which features a tack film on the grid and CompoGrid which combines the grid with a nonwoven composite fabric.

Nonwoven reinforcement paving mats are strong and effective moisture-resistant membranes designed to reduce thermal and stress-related cracks developing in new asphalt overlays.

Self-adhesive asphalt reinforcement patches feature reinforced bitumen layer for quick and easy repairs that increase pavement life.
