Use & Purposes
ProGrid® Glass geogrid is composed of a reticular structural material made of glass fiber with bitumen coating. It withstands high and low temperatures and can resist corrosion. ProGrid® Glass paving grid is a stress transferring asphalt reinforcement geogrid developed specifically for ashpalt overlays. ProGrid® Glass geogrid can not only decrease the cost of construction but also prolong the service life of the pavement.
Using ProGrid® Glass geogrid in a pavement system can disperse cyclic loading of vehicle and lower reflective cracking occurrence due to temperature difference to extend useful life of pavement.
