Asphalt Reinforcement Geogrids

Asphalt Reinforcement Geogrids

Our TE-FGP & TE-FGC biaxial fiberglass geogrids are designed specifically as interlayers for asphalt reinforcement applications. They work to enhance pavement life and performance while helping to reduce maintenance costs. Though each of these fiberglass geogrids have unique characteristics both feature excellent heat resistance, low shrinkage and ultimate elongation to help create a rigid asphalt layer. These geogrids are highly durable, biologically unaffected by soil micro-organisms, inert to all chemicals normally found in soil, and formulated to resist ultraviolet degradation.

More information on each is provided below.

TE-FGP (Biaxial Fiberglass Geogrid)

  • Polymer coating optimizes the chemical compatibility between the fiberglass reinforcement and the pavement overlay to create strong bonding of the asphalt layers.
  • Aperture size allows asphalt particles to penetrate through the grid to achieve high interlock and effective bonding of two asphalt lifts.
  • Self-adhesive backing eliminates the need for tack coat and speeds up installation.

TE-FGC (Biaxial Fiberglass Composite Geogrid)

  • Bonded to a non-woven polypropylene geotextile.
  • Provides both moisture proofing and water resistance benefits while creating a strong bond of the asphalt layers over the tack coat surface. This bond ensures that the reinforcing geogrid is in a position to effectively accept and distribute tensile stresses.

Benefits:

  • Suitable for all types of asphalt mixes.
  • Minimizes both thermal and stress related reflective cracking.
  • Reduces pavement rutting under high ambient temperatures and intense wheel loads.
  • Increases the fatigue life of pavements with weak foundations.
  • Extends pavement life.
  • Provides cost benefits by increasing pavement life cycle.
  • Fast, easy installation and recyclable.
  • Reduces overlay thickness to a minimum of 50 mm.

Common Applications:

  • Roads
  • Airport runways and taxiways
  • Bridges
  • Parking lots
