Overview

GlasPave® paving mats are a unique combination of fiberglass mesh embedded into high performance polyester mats. The non-woven matrix structure of GlasPave paving mats allows for an asphalt binder to penetrate and fill voids within the fabric to limit moisture infiltration into a pavement structure. The fiberglass matrix in a GlasPave paving mat coated with an elastomeric polymer provides significantly greater tensile strength at low strain when compared to conventional paving fabrics and other paving mats.

GlasPave® is a U.S. registered trademark of Saint-Gobain ADFORS. Other foreign trademarks also apply.

SKUs

GlasPave is available in two SKUs: GP25 and GP50.

Pavement Rehabilitation with Moisture Barrier Protection

GlasPave paving mats' geosynthetic, non-woven polyester matrix enables an asphalt binder to fully penetrate and fill voids within the matrix. This limits the infiltration of surface moisture into the granular layers of a pavement structure, ultimately preserving the strength of these layers. The matrix design also promotes a quick, strong bond with a variety of asphaltic tack coats. And like the GlasGrid® asphalt reinforcement system, the GlasPave mat performs well even in the harshest environments.

Not All Paving Mats Are Created Equal

Unlike polypropylene fabrics, GlasPave mats will neither shrink nor change dimensions when exposed to hot mix asphalt; this prevents premature slippage or loss of bond. Since it requires a smaller amount of hot liquid asphalt to install than most other fabrics, it leaves a smaller carbon footprint. And with its higher tensile strength, GlasPave mats are more durable and less susceptible to on-site installation damage. In fact, testing at the Texas Transportation Institute demonstrates that GlasPave mats outperform other interlayer product types, such as polyester composite grids or glass fiber composite grids.

Easy Installation

A variety of roll lengths allow for faster installation and fewer roll change-outs, while a choice of roll widths allows for easier placement around corners and curves. The additional stiffness of GlasPave mats makes them more durable and less prone to on-site installation damage.

Fully Millable and Recyclable

Unlike other interlayer systems, GlasPave mats are easily broken up by conventional milling equipment and reusable in other road projects as recycled asphalt pavement (RAP). Its main component is silica, a natural substance that is environmentally friendly.
