Ease of Mixing.

The superior delivery system for ACE XP™ ensures efficient and thorough distribution and mixing of the 19 million para-aramid fibers that go into each ton of asphalt. When distributed and mixed, the para-aramid fibers provide 3-D reinforcement and property enhancements throughout the entire asphalt mix, and ultimately, the finished pavement or overlay.

ACE XP™ can easily be included in the asphalt mixing process at both batch and drum plant facilities. Drum and batch plants are efficiently fed with ACE XP™ being added to the RAP collar, or pug mill/weigh hopper respectively, in proper weight to match the mixing speed.

ACE XP™ is measured in ton equivalents (TE), which is based on the optimal fiber count of approximately 19 million fibers (2. 1 ounces of para-aramid) per ton of asphalt mix. ACE XP™ doses at 4.2 ounces per TE; 2.1 ounces of wax binder completely dissipates in the mix, leaving the 2.1 ounces of para-aramid delivered. The wax binder is excellent for controlling the para-aramid effectively into any mix, delivering the intended dosing (2.1 ounces per TE).

With your ACE XP order,

a certified technician arrives at your plant location for a pre-conference and to perform the entire mixing process as part of our QA Program. This ensures the mix is accurate and dosed correctly. You won’t experience plant interruptions, additional modifications, drum clean outs, and other inconveniences. Instead, you’ll receive a daily report and a project stamped-certification. At Surface Tech, ease of adoption is key.
