S&P Asphalt reinforcement
Fibre reinforcement grids for asphalt surfaces
The S&P ARMO System consists of the special mortar S&P ARMO-crete® and the carbon fibre reinforcement mesh S&P ARMO-mesh®. The system is used for static reinforcement in structural/civil engineering, building construction and tunnelling. It can be installed either via the wet-spray method or the dry-spray method onto both concrete and masonry substrates. Due to the corrosion resistant properties of the carbon fibre mesh, it is possible to install the mortar at a significantly lower thickness than traditional methods. The amorphous silica coating on the S&P ARMO-mesh®, together with the reactive component in the S&P ARMO-crete® mortar, results in an intensified bond between the mesh and the mortar, as well as an increase in anchorage. The result is a fibre reinforced mortar with high fire resistance. The mortar also meets the requirements for the highest abrasion resistance.
An S&P specially developed mixing and pumping system enables the mortar to be fed directly from a silo, ensuring that the installation process can be optimised economically and efficiently. For construction applications, the S&P ARMO-grid SR can also be used. The S&P software ARMO (flexion/axial) can provide the needed static design if required.
