Steel - Bitufor Meshtrack

Mesh Track is a steel reinforcing overlay for cracked or deformed roads, which has been successfully used for some years. Used in combination with a Slurry Seal it can deal with problems such as reflective cracking, slippage, deformation or differential movement.

The woven hexagonal wire netting, manufactured out of heavy galvanised steel wire, is reinforced at regular intervals by transverse twisted steel wire stands, interwoven into the mesh. The construction of Mesh Track allows the product to be securely tensioned whilst deformation is prevented by the transverse wire stands.

Application:

The galvanised steel mesh is laid directly onto the surface of the road, which should be cleaned. However, if there are deep deformations in the road surface or heavy damage such as rutting then a regulating layer should first be applied.

The mesh is unrolled onto the surface and flattened to it by a roller. A Modified Bitumen Emulsion Slurry is then applied, once the slurry has cured, the Asphalt, Bitmac or cold laid Macadam can be laid over with a minimum thickness of 50mm. Depending on design a second layer can be applied, Mesh Track is available in two grades, which limits the deformation in an overlay to a minimum.

Main Features:
  • - Limits deformation in an overlay to a minimum
  • - Absorbs the tensile stresses beneath the asphalt layer
  • - Locks asphalt aggregates into the meshes of the netting (compartmentalisation-interlock)
  • - Ensures optimal distribution of the load
  • - Provides extra toughness to the overall structure

Polyester - Armatex RS

Armatex R.S. Geogrid is a 100% polyester grid with a non-woven backing used as an interlayer to reduce reflective cracking and deformation of differential movement.

A layer of binder is sprayed on the existing surface before the installation of the geogrid amply saturating it with binder to ensure good adhesion and provide a waterproof membrane which helps to prevent water penetration and the consequent deterioration of the underlying courses.
