Pavement Overlay Fabrics are made from polypropylene or polyester fibers and are used in conjunction with asphalt resurfacing projects. A liquid asphalt tack coat is sprayed on existing (or pre-leveled) pavement surface followed by the installation of the overlay fabric. A final aggregate asphalt surface course is then placed directly on the overlay fabric. The heat from the asphalt surface brings the underlying liquid tack coat through the fabric creating a fabric-saturated membrane that is bonded to the old and new pavement.
STARGrid G-PS and STARGrid G+PF fill the need for an all-inclusive geosynthetics reinforcing element for asphalt pavement overlays. When properly installed with an asphalt concrete overlay, maintenance costs will reduce and the pavement service life will increase. These interlayers can be installed to the full pavement width or pre-cut to narrower widths to address specific cracks and joints. We supply STARGrid interlayers for a variety of road applications and will also install STARGrid per your application and specifications.
PavePrep & Geotac
Our premier membrane for waterproofing and reduction of reflective cracks and joints, PavePrep and GeoTac have a history of performance. Often referred to as a Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAMI), PavePrep is most commonly used over longitudinal widening joints and both longitudinal and transverse concrete pavement joints. The new asphalt overlay and the entire pavement section will last longer and ride better while minimizing maintenance costs and inconveniences. GeoTac is a peel-and-stick waterproofing membrane for box culverts and bridge decks. GeoTac is used for ODOT Type 2 Waterproofing spec and as a membrane interlayer.
The GlasGrid® Pavement Reinforcement System provides additional support to resist the migration of reflective cracks in roadway applications. This interlayer system is composed of a series of fiberglass strands coated with an elastomeric polymer and formed into a grid structure. When GlasGrid is sandwiched between the leveling and surface course asphalt, it becomes the hidden strength in the road which is designed to aim crack stresses horizontally, effectively dissipating them. The GlasGrid System is easily installed without specialized equipment or labor.
TruPave Paving Mat
TruPave paving mat is a millable high performance road-paving mat designed to help enhance the performance of asphalt pavements. TruPave paving mat is a unique, non-woven interlayment engineered specifically for hot-mix asphalt pavements. TruPave paving mat is a hybrid of fiberglass and polyester giving this unique material the strength of fiberglass with the flexibility of polyester. Unlike other products, TruPave will not melt or shrink, even at high temperatures. PS Construction is a supplier of TruPave and will even install on your job-site.
