Fiber-Reinforced Asphalt

 

FORTA-FI-bags-smfortafiintomix
FORTA-FI® products comprise unique blends of fibers which are added evenly to an asphalt mix at the production plant. In simple terms, the addition of fibers into an asphalt mix provides the means by which imposed tensile forces (due to trafficking or environmental effects) can be partially transferred to a more stress-resistant material. This results in increased strength, toughness and durability and an improvement of the overall performance of a pavement structure.

Scope

  • New construction and rehabilitation projects
  • Low-, medium- and high-volume pavements

 
Benefits

  • Up to 50% life extension for asphalt overlays and main pavement layers or
  • Thickness reduction of up to 35% with no loss in performance
