S&P Asphalt reinforcement
Fibre reinforcement grids for asphalt surfaces
S&P Asphalt reinforcement grids are widely recognised as being a long term sustainable option when it comes to reinforcing roads and pavements.
When considering traditional repair methods, frequent repair cycles of recurring problems with roads, leads to an increase in CO2 emissions through a variety of factors such as the amount of asphalt needed for relaying and re-surfacing roads, as well as the frequent required use of the machinery involved during the repair.
Imagine if these repair cycles could be less frequent and the durability of the road could be increased? This is where S&P come in. S&P asphalt reinforcement grids are a durable solution. By installing S&P asphalt reinforcement grids on your projects, you are guaranteeing that the road will last longer – therefore working towards a more sustainable infrastructure, where the length of repair cycles are significantly extended.
Not only that, should there indeed be a need in the future to repair or re-structure the road network, S&P asphalt reinforcement grids are millable and recyclable. This offers peace of mind, knowing that when the time comes in the distant future to mill the road, the presence of the S&P asphalt reinforcement grid between road layers will not cause a problem for machinery and the milled material is completely re-usable.
Thanks to a research project initiated with various partners in 2019, S&P have been able to successfully prove the use of milled asphalt granulate containing fibre residue from S&P grids in the creation of new asphalt wearing courses.
A real road test section including S&P asphalt reinforcement grids was installed back in the summer of 2019 for the sole purpose of milling it, processing the milled granulate and then ultimately using the processed milled granulate in a new asphalt course – again in real road conditions.
