Asphalt Reinforcement

Extending service life and reducing maintenance needs

As a permeable road surface, asphalt can be prone to cracking and wear. Reinforcement delays the occurrence of cracks and reduces the effects of stress.

Enhanced long-term durability

Enhanced long-term durability

Using Enka-Tex for asphalt reinforcement reduces reflective cracking of the base layer induced by thermal effects and seasonal temperature fluctuations. Other external forces negated include traffic load and movement of the subgrade material.

Reducing costs

Enkagrid contributes to lowering the maintenance cost of highways and roads by reducing the cracking and wear of the surface caused by bending and shear, improving driving comfort and safety.

Three clear benefits

Asphalt reinforcement works in three distinct ways. It adds tensile strength to the asphalt, it reduces the effect of stress, and it forms an impermeable layer within the asphalt layer.

OUR SOLUTION

Enkagrid contributes to lowering the maintenance cost of highways and roads by reducing the cracking and wear of the surface caused by bending and shear, improving driving comfort and safety.

  • Significantly delays occurrence of cracks.
  • Granular interlocking maintained when cracking has occurred.
  • Prevents propagation of reflective cracks either upwards or downwards.
  • Prevents infiltration of rainwater into the sub-base.
  • Prevents freeze-thaw damage, loss of bearing capacity and pothole development.
  • Increases maintenance intervals.
  • Benefits driving comfort.
  • Reduces whole-life cost and carbon footprint.
Functions
  • Reinforcement of asphalt layers.
  • Repair of asphalt layers.
  • Water tightening and sealing of asphalt layers.
