Kast manufactures geotextiles made from glass fibers or as glass/carbon composites (hybrid mesh). These grids for asphalt and concrete pavement reinforcement as well as for sediment and erosion control, ensure the high durability needed in this sector. KAST GeTo geogrids enable a much greater life span compared to conventional pavement constructions, prevents premature restoration and is a cost and resource saver on all levels.
KAST Geotextile Grid is used to reinforce asphalt layers. These mesh fabrics made of glass and/or carbon fibers show a high force absorption at low elongation of less than 3%.
Reinforcement grids can be used for various reasons in asphalt and pavement layers:
Certified asphalt reinforcements extend the service life of a road surface significantly. Asphalt layer thickness can be reduced and therefore a significant reduction in material consumption can be achieved. The glass and/or carbon fibers used absorb horizontal tensile stresses and strains effectively. Future pavement cracking is prevented completely or – at the very least – considerably reduced
Cracks in asphalt that need to be avoided.
GeTo Asphalt reinforcement grids.
Increased average life span of the asphalt layer using Kast GeTo grids.
Grid fabrics made of high-strength glass fibers offer slope reinforcement and prevent erosion. Project specific tensile strengths and flame-retardant / UV-stable coated grid constructions secure newly constructed slopes until the natural vegetation takes over. Geogrids remain fully functional for long periods of time.
