ASPHALT REINFORCEMENT GEOGRID ROAD APPLICATION TITAN ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAINMENT

TE-FGP10 Geogrid (Fiberglass grid alone)

Titan’s TE-FGP fiberglass geogrid is specifically designed for asphalt reinforcement. Its optimal apertures allow asphalt particles to penetrate through the grid to achieve high interlock and effective bonding of the two asphalt lifts. This geogrid is also polymer coated which ensures proper adhesion to the asphalt layers over the tack coat surface, and further optimizes the chemical compatibility between the fiberglass reinforcement and the pavement overlay to create a solid bond of the asphalt layers over the tack coat surface. This bond ensures that the reinforcing grid is in position to effectively accept and distribute tensile stresses. It is self-adhesive and offers excellent heat resistance; minimal shrinkage at high temperatures; high chemical, physical and biological durability along with optimal elastic modulus and aperture size. It is biologically unaffected by soil micro-organisms, inert to all chemicals normally found in the soil, and formulated to resist ultraviolet degradation.
