Introduction

RG geogrids are used to help retard reflective cracking in flexible and composite pavements. These products derive their reinforcement benefits from extremely stiff, fiber-glass strands which are coated with a polymer and then knitted together to form a grid structure. Adhesive material on the underside of the geogrid helps expedite installation and ensures a firm bond between the asphalt layers above and below.

How do RG Geogrids work?

When an overlay is placed over an existing cracked pavement, the cracks will eventually be reflected at the surface. The RG geogrid effectively allows two components to form a composite material i.e. the tensile strength of the geogrid combines with the compressive strength of the asphalt. Cracks propagating upward are intercepted by the geogrid and prevented from immediately migrating further thus extending the life of the overlay (2 to 3 times) and increasing the period between major rehabilitation events.

Applications:
