ACE FIBER™ 3D Pavement Reinforcement
ACE FIBER™ is a true achievement in asphalt additive technology to enhance performance.
To create ACE, Surface Tech blended aramid fibers and Sasobit wax to address the 2 major distresses effecting asphalt performance today; cracking and rutting. Doing so also dramatically improved the treated roads’ life expectancy. When ACE Fiber is mixed into asphalt, it disperses over 19 million Aramid fibers throughout each ton of mix to provide 3-dimensional reinforcement that increases the asphalt’s resistance to reflective cracking, rutting, fatigue and increased life expectancy. And best of all, no specialty contractors are needed for installation. Contractors handle ACE Fiber reinforced asphalt the same way they handle standard asphalt. This underscores Ace’s technology in being easy to adopt.

ACE’s superior delivery system ensures efficient and thorough distribution and mixing of the 19 million Aramid fibers into each ton of asphalt. When distributed and mixed, the Aramid fibers provide 3-D reinforcement and property enhancements throughout the entire asphalt mix and the fnal pavement or overlay.
ACE Fiber is easily included in the mixing process at batch or drum plant facilities. Drum and Batch plants are efficiently fed with ACE Fiber added to the Rap collar or pug mill/weigh hopper respectively in proper weight to match the mixing speed.
ACE Fiber is measured in Ton Equivalents (TEs), which is based on the optimal fiber count of approximately 19 million fibers (2. 1 ounces aramid) per ton of asphalt mix. Doses at 4.2 ounces per TE; including 2.1 ounces of wax binder that completely dissipates in the mix, leaving the 2.1 ounces of Aramid delivered. The wax binder is excellent for controlling the Aramid effectively into any mix, delivering the intended dosage.
Use Less, Save More
Up to a 33% reduction in thickness of asphalt (at $60 per ton/asphalt, you are saving $20). Design your project to cover the cost of ACE!
This savings still compares/equates to control life of the road; covering ACE, saving additional dollars AND improving life expectancy is a major Value.
