Titan Fiberglass Geogrid Systems (Bi-Axial)
Designed specifically as an interlayer for asphalt reinforcement, Titan’s fiberglass geogrid systems work to enhance pavement life and performance while helping to reduce maintenance costs. These include our NEW GENERATION TE-FGP fiberglass geogrid, our NEW GENERATION TE-FGC fiberglass composite geogrid and our newest cutting-edge TE-FGP-TF tack-film fiberglass geogrid. While they have distinct characteristics and offer different benefits they all feature a unique coating that provides excellent heat resistance and stability to a melting point of 900 °F as well as very low shrinkage and ultimate elongation to create a rigid asphalt layer. These geogrids are highly durable, biologically unaffected by soil micro-organisms, inert to all chemicals normally found in the soil, and formulated to resist ultraviolet degradation.
NEW GENERATION TE-FGP (Fiberglass Geogrid)
Titan’s TE-FGP is a ploymer coated fiberglass geogrid. Featuring ultimate aperture size it allows asphalt particles to penetrate through the grid to achieve high interlock and effective bonding of two asphalt lifts. The polymeric coating helps to further optimize the chemical compatibility between the fiberglass reinforcement and the pavement overlay. Additionally, it is self-adhesive which eliminates the need for tack coat and speeds up installation.
NEW GENERATION TE-FGC (Fiberglass Composite Geogrid)
The NEW GENERATION TE-FGC fiberglass geogrid is a composite product meaning that the geogrid is bonded to a non-woven geotextile. It provides moisture proofing and water resistance benefits while creating a strong bond of the asphalt layers over the tack coat surface. This bond ensures that the reinforcing geogrid is in a position to effectively accept and distribute tensile stresses.
CUTTING-EDGE TE-FGP-TF (Tack-Film Fiberglass Geogrid)
Our cutting-edge TE-FGP-TF fiberglass geogrid is polymer coated and includes a tack-film. It features a pressure sensitive self-adhesive backing on one side, and a polymeric tack-film on the other side. This tack-film is formulated to replace the conventional tack coat and provide stronger adhesion to the asphalt layers. The polymer coating also enhances adhesion to the asphalt layers, and further optimizes the chemical compatibility between the fiberglass reinforcement and the pavement overlay to create a solid bonding of the asphalt layers. Though a very light tack coat may still be required on old surfaces, this geogrid is ideal for newer road construction or pavement rehabilitation.
