Aramid Fibers are used extensively in many industries and applications including ballistic protection, heat & cut protection, automotive, ropes & cables, conveyor belts, etc. However, it takes a special polymer fiber to withstand the extreme production temperatures of asphalt concrete without changes occurring to the reinforcement properties of the fiber. That is why ACE XP Polymer Fiber™ 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). Both ¾” long and 1.5” long fiber lengths are available for superior long-term performance.
