FiberMat is ACP Applied’s fibre reinforced stress absorbing membrane. By fortifying asphalt emulsion with fiberglass, FiberMat achieves superior tensile strength and crack resistance.

The reinforcement process is simple; after cleaning and preparing the surface, a specially designed unit sandwiches chopped fiberglass strand between two layers of asphalt emulsion followed by a 6, 9, or 12.5mm (or combination) aggregate. This process produces no adhesion problems while generating a greater tensile strength.

Uses:

  • Absorption of stresses within the pavement structure
  • Re-stabilization, strengthening, and resurfacing projects
  • Another tool in the preventative maintenance toolbox
  • For crack inhibiting and delaying reflective crack propagation

Benefits:

  • Fast application process
  • Open to traffic minutes after completion
  • Reduces, repairs, and resists cracking
  • Increases tensile strength and flexibility
  • Bonds well to concrete and asphalt
  • Economical
  • Perfect for most traffic volumes
  • No milling required

FiberMat Type-A Stress Absorbing Membrane (SAM)

For a superior surface treatment, ACP Applied installs the FiberMat Stress Absorbing Membrane. By sandwiching chopped glass fibres between two layers of a special polymer-modified asphalt emulsion followed by a 6mm, 9mm, or 12.5mm aggregate, FiberMat Type A achieves:

  • Significant tensile strength
  • Flexible enough to absorb movements in the pavement structure
  • Delayed pavement cracking
  • Delayed reflective cracking
  • 300% reduction in wheel-track cracking

In addition to providing these great benefits, the FiberMat SAM application process is very fast. Thanks to a controlled breaking system, roads that have been enhanced with Type-A FiberMat can be opened after only 15 minutes, regardless of temperature or humidity.

FiberMat Type-B Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAMI)

FiberMat Type-B shares all the same great stress-absorbing characteristics as Type-A, but is specially designed to be used in conjunction with a wearing course. Both provide superior protection against cracking on the road surface, but FibreMat Type-B functions best beneath a layer of asphalt or other road course.
