Geogrid Ultranite Asphalt (without substrate)

ULTRANIT ASPHALT is a geogrid made of high-modulus polyester yarns and impregnated with a polymer-bitumen compound to increase the factor of adhesion with asphalt-concrete, which provides high resistance to tensile stress and contributes to uniform distribution

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES: The geogrid is placed with a slight tension and at least 0.1 m offset from the edge, without misalignments, with at least 0.10-0.15 m sheets overlapping in cross-machine direction and machine direction.
Roll unwinding should be performed after additional securing of the geogrid end part using dowels knocked into the foundation through metal washers with a plug-driving gun or a hammer at 1.0-1.3 width spacing.
The geogrid securing should be done at 3.0- 5.0 m intervals in machine direction and at 1.0-1.3 m intervals in cross-machine direction. If the geogrid is displaced resulting in wave formation, the following technological operations are recommended:
• Spread the asphalt-concrete mixture manually or mechanically (with a sand spreader) in one filling brick layer over the entire surface and perform rolling-on with a combination (pneumatic) roller in 2-3 passes.
• Reduce the geogrid securing interval in the machine direction.
