Tensar AR-G

Asphalt geogrid

Tensar asphalt reinforcement technology has been established for twenty years and the products are proven for retarding cracking and controlling deformation in pavements internationally. Tensar AR-G is a stiff, oriented grid is suitable for increasing the fatigue life of pavements with weak foundations, reducing rutting and controlling reflective cracking.

Tensar AR-G geogrid is used to increase the life of a pavement by delaying the onset of failure caused by low subgrade strength, high axle loadings or reflective cracking. Tensar AR-G geogrid is proven by extensive world-wide use and rigorous independent laboratory research and provides real cost benefits by lengthening the maintenance cycle for asphalt pavements in road networks, airports, sea ports and hardstand areas.

Properties

Tensar AR-G geogrid is a composite consisting of a stretched polypropylene grid and a purpose-made, non-woven geotextile. The two components are heat bonded to form a robust, easy-to-lay composite.

Application

Tensar AR-G geogrid is supplied in rolls which are laid using a laying frame. Tensar AR-G geogrid should always be laid between 2 asphalt layers. The minimum overlay depth for Tensar AR-G geogrid is 70mm. Independent testing has shown that Tensar AR-G geogrid can increases the fatigue life of pavements with weak foundations by up to a factor of ten, reduces rutting by up to 70% and reduces reflective cracking in overlays making it well suited for both new road construction as well as repair to existing cracked road with the urban road network and for airport and sea port applications.
