Asphalt reinforcement against reflective cracking

Asphalt concrete is characterized by high compression strength but low tensile resistance. The application of an interlayer between two asphalt layers can retards reflective cracking between asphalt layers by:
Increasing asphalt tensile stress resistance
Bearing a significant proportion of horizontal tension forces, thus ensuring even stress distribution over a large area

A Hatelit C Type Geogrid – advantages:

Asphalt reinforcing grids are mostly applied in asphalt pavements with a reinforcement geogrid attached to ease installation, followed by the installation of a new asphalt overlay.
Thirty years of experience have proven that the application of geogrids reduces maintenance of the asphalt pavement, extends maintenance intervals and produces favorable cost/benefit ratios.

  • Improving the quality of the asphalt pavement.

  • Significantly reducing maintenance costs.

  • Retarding or preventing reflective cracking.

Other Applications

  • Drainage, separation and reinforcement of sub-bases by geotextile

    Drainage can reduce the negative influence of confined water on the bearing capacity of the base layers. Reinforcement can improve the bearing capacity.


  • Load support of roads and railways bases by Tough cells Neoloy and biaxial geogrids

    Biaxial geogrids and tough Geocells are used to stabilize and reinforce road and railway bases.


  • Lining of clay subgrades

    Lining with HDPE Geomembranes enables the clay to maintain a constant moisture content and thus prevent its swelling.
