Asphalt concrete is characterized by high compression strength but low tensile resistance. The application of an interlayer between two asphalt layers can retards reflective cracking between asphalt layers by:
Increasing asphalt tensile stress resistance
Bearing a significant proportion of horizontal tension forces, thus ensuring even stress distribution over a large area

Asphalt reinforcing grids are mostly applied in asphalt pavements with a reinforcement geogrid attached to ease installation, followed by the installation of a new asphalt overlay.
Thirty years of experience have proven that the application of geogrids reduces maintenance of the asphalt pavement, extends maintenance intervals and produces favorable cost/benefit ratios.
