Description

In 2019, Beacon Roofing purchased a new warehouse in Aurora, CO, but the company inherited a parking lot that it feared could not withstand 18-wheelers loaded with heavy roofing supplies. To complicate the situation, Beacon needed a fast fix so it could begin operations. Surface Tech provided one in the form of a thinner, fiber-reinforced mix — and at a cost that saved the company $34,615.44.

Rose Paving joined forces with Kiewit Infrastructure to install 100,000 square feet of 6” asphalt remove-and-replace-pavement utilizing Surface Tech’s ACE XP™ polyaramid fibers. The 6” pavement performs at the same traffic load as an 8” non-reinforced pavement, and the job was finished within the needed time frame. The company plans to develop a new 100,000 square foot lot in 2021 using the same bottom lift standard mix design and top lift fiber-reinforced mix design.

Commercial pavements face constant stress from delivery trucks and trash trucks.  For sites with heavy traffic, cracking can result from a variety of causes. If the pavement is not up to the task, finding an affordable solution becomes a big challenge.  Owners can now elect for a faster, less expensive fix using ACE XP™ reinforced mix or one of the other Surface Tech polymer aramid solutions, such as ARMI™ for crack relief or REARM HR™ to increase the RAP content.  Any one of these solutions can provide the strength, durability and long life owners want in their asphalt pavements.
