Asphalt Reinforcement Webinar
Steel Based Asphalt Reinforcement Crack Prevention webinar synopsis - Thursday 26th November @ 11am
ABG in association with LCRIG, are hosting a webinar aimed at Local Authority Highways Departments where ‘Fortifix’ innovative steel composite based crack prevention system will be discussed as a method of treating common surface deterioration problems in highways.
Areas to be covered are:
- Reflective Cracking
- Overlaying concrete pavements
- Road widenings
- Overlaying Sett paved roads
- Fixed thresholds
Fortifix differs from older style steel meshes in that it can be planed and recycled, whilst offering asphalt strengthening and stiffness benefits. Steel also has a much greater young’s modulus value over more commonly used glass fibre grids, leading to a much enhanced design life.
The webinar will also cover:
- Verge reinforcement (over-run and stone scatter)
- Erosion control
- Carriageway drainage
