FiberMat®

OVERVIEW:

FiberMat® is the ultimate crack inhibiting, waterproofing and sealing membrane. FiberMat® can be utilized to address two distinct distress application needs. Type A is applied as a superior wearing course for stand-alone surface treatment applications. Type B is a Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAMI) used to reduce reflective cracking in pavement system overlays.

DESCRIPTION:

FiberMat® consists of a combination of polymer-modified asphalt emulsion, chopped fiberglass strands and quality crushed aggregate. For the same reason fiberglass is specified in today’s concrete and asphalt mixes, the realized benefit of the fiberglass is the superior tensile strength which absorbs and bridges pavement distresses, as well as helping to reduce reflective cracking.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

  • Waterproofs pavement sub base
  • Reduces future repairs and minimizes reflective cracking
  • Fiberglass modification adds strength to weak parts of pavement
  • Economical compared to conventional fabrics and geotextiles
  • Extends overall pavement service life
  • Recyclable
