GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) nonwoven paving fabric
Supplied and installed by Asphalt Reinforcement Services
Extending pavement life is key to cash savings, increased efficiency and delayed interventions. GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) is a geosynthetic pavement reinforcement and moisture barrier system designed to do just that. The system adds another choice to the proven GlasGrid® system, by integrating it with a nonwoven paving fabric.
- Improves long term pavement performance
- Waterproofs asphalt overlay
- Protects underlying layers
- Withstands shear and tensile stresses
- Resists thermal expansion, contraction and curling
- Reduces effects of age hardening
Asphalt Reinforcement Services will support you with both the supply and installation of this system.
GlasGrid® geosynthetic products save you costs of reactive maintenance.
Enabling fast, effective installation using GlasGrid® geosynthetics.
Reducing reflective cracking for up to 25 years with GlasGrid® reinforcement products
While commonly used for road widening, trench repairs, construction joints and reducing reflective cracking, it also has many other uses in a variety of different applications, such as:
- Car and truck parks
- Distribution centres
- Recreation sites
- Commercial & military airfields
GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) can be used on different structurally stable foundations such as on concrete, cement-bound material or bituminous pavements. This versatility, means that GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) can be used in new road builds, or as a preventative measure in refurbishments to delay the onset of recurring problems.
GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) provides a high strength, high modulus fibreglass mesh system which reduces the potential of thermal stress-related cracks reflecting through to the surface of the new asphalt overlay.
The non-woven fabric layer within GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) provides additional pavement protection. Once the non-woven layer has been impregnated with bitumen it acts as a moisture barrier.
The system is saturated with bitumen or bituminous emulsion before overlaying with asphalt, providing a pavement reinforcement and moisture barrier system which gives additional protection to the pavement foundation.
The application of geosynthetic reinforcement directly onto milled surfaces is never advised. However, GlasGrid® CompoGrid (CG) provides an alternative solution as the non-woven fabric will act as padding between the milled surface and the glass-fibre reinforcement.
