Increase Your Road’s Rut & Crack Resistance with ACE Fiber®

Many fibres have been used to reinforce asphalt, but it takes a special fibre to successfully reinforce 350°F asphalt. Aramid is a unique fibre with 400,000 psi tensile strength and micro-roots that tenaciously anchor themselves in the bitumen of asphalt. In summer when asphalt gets hot and wants to rut, the rooted aramid provides resistance to the “flow” of asphalt to mitigate rutting. In winter when asphalt is cold and wants to shrink, aramid provides added tensile strength for resistance to cracking. Aramid fibres make sense, and for relatively low cost ACE Fiber makes a big performance improvement in asphalt. » Learn more
