Asphalt reinforcement for the efficient and
sustainable rehabilitation of traffic surfaces

Asphalt reinforcements (asphalt reinforcements, asphalt inlays) are today an integral part of road rehabilitation in road construction. Due to continuously increasing mobility, our roads are also becoming more and more stressed. In many places, roads are ageing and it is urgently necessary to clear the rehabilitation backlog and to repair the old, dilapidated asphalt roads and to delay the undesirable reflection cracking, which is the cause of many road damages, in the long term. Other reasons for reflection cracking are the natural temperature fluctuations and the different temperature behaviour of asphalt and concrete. With conventional asphalt road construction, high stress concentrations at the crack tip result in crack propagation that penetrates into the top asphalt surface layer. Our solution: asphalt inlays made of particularly flexible geogrids, which we manufacture from various high-quality raw materials in order to be able to respond to individual requirements. For easy installation, they are already provided with a unique, bitumen-based coating (bitumen content > 65 %) at the factory. Compared to conventional construction methods, road rehabilitation with asphalt reinforcement benefits from shorter installation times, less material input and saves not only costs, but also harmful CO2 emissions thanks to the more sustainable service life due to 4-fold delayed cracking.

Optimal mesh sizes and bitumen coating

Nothing sticks to bitumen better than bitumen! That is why we use a coating with a bitumen content > 65% for all our products.

The bond plays a decisive role in the rehabilitation of asphalt surfaces and concrete pavements. The level of bond depends on the interlocking, bonding and friction in the asphalt layers. Good asphalt reinforcement specifically promotes these properties by the size of the mesh and by a coating with a high bitumen content.
HaTelit does not interfere with the bond between the asphalt layers.

Simple and safe installation

  • The bituminous coating produces very good adhesion to the substrate
     
  • The laying aid leads to time saving and offers good positional stability
     
  • Roll lengths up to 150 m and variable roll widths up to 5 m reduce
    overlaps and increase installation performance
     
  • Optimal pliability, flexibility and adaptability facilitate installation

Resistant to installation damage

  • When passing over with mixer trucks as well as tracked pavers
     
  • When compacting the asphalt
     
  • When laying on a milled surface
     
  • In alkaline environment (when laid on concrete surfaces)

Good bonding!

  • Bonding of the reinforcement to the asphalt and bonding of the asphalt
    layers to each other
     
  • Good interlocking of the asphalt layers due to the laying aid made of
    ultra-light non-woven fabric and the mesh size > 3 cm
     
  • Permanently high adhesive bond due to the bitumen coating

Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements

  • Simple, fast and cost-effective solution with CO2 emission saving advantages when using asphalt layers
     
  • Installation of the reinforcement grid directly on to the binder
     
  • The asphalt reinforcement prevents existing reflection cracks from penetrating into the surface course
    and prevents the formation of new reflection cracksat the same time
