Making Asphalt

Stronger than Steel

ACE XP Polymer Fiber (ACE XP) is engineered to provide extra performance in asphalt increasing service life, saving costs, adding strength to asphalt pavement in all directions.

Tougher, Stronger, Longer Lasting


Surface Tech is committed to developing the most advanced additives for asphalt, not only adding strength and durability, but improving the sustainability of roads and other surfaces for a positive environmental impact.

ACE XP™ Polymer Fiber


ACE XP™ is a true achievement in additive technology to enhance asphalt performance.

ACE XP™ uses aramid fibers exclusively. Aramid is a unique man-made, high-strength fiber boasting high tensile strengths over 400,000 psi (5 x steel), a superior stress/strain relationship, and decomposition temperatures exceeding 800oF (well above asphalt mixing temperatures of 400oF).

Surface Tech’s ARMI product is used in conjunction with an Optimized Asphalt Mix Design to create a superior Reflective Crack Relief Interlayer (RCRI).



ARMI™ – Aramid Reinforced Membrane Interlayer takes asphalt pavement crack resistance to the next level, providing a permanent plant produced and paver laid 1” thick asphalt interlayer. The standard ARMI™ product will drastically reduce both bottom up and top down crack penetration through the 1” thick interlayer providing unparalleled crack resistance.

ARMI+ is further modified to achieve the crack resistance specific to the owner’s performance needs and expectations.
