Tensar’s asphalt reinforcement grids interact with the bitumen bound layer to add tensile stiffness, limiting asphalt strains and reducing the development of cracking. When cracks do eventually develop they are often much smaller. Structural asphalt grids also reduce surface rutting, as asphalt mix locks in the grid apertures and lateral movement is restricted. Thanks to these properties, the asphalt grids of Tensar help to increase pavement life and save maintenance costs.
