FORTAfied® Asphalt is Stronger Asphalt!
FORTAfied® asphalt is stronger asphalt, and builds tougher roads that are both safer, and more fiscally responsible. Today, more than ever, using time and material resources responsibly is everyone's goal. FORTA-FI® is uniquely capable of reinforcing all asphalt mixtures allowing for either less asphalt or longer life, which translates into reduced processing, reduced labor, reduced time and reduced logistics thereby reducing overall project cost.
Many cities and towns across the country are making FORTA-FI® a regular part of their street maintenance programs. The 'City of Blossoms' elected to use FORTA-FI® fiber in a 1 in. thin-overlay project in the heart of downtown Willard. Busy and beautiful Emerald Street received a surface lift of reinforced asphalt over a standard job-mix leveling course. The three-dimensional reinforcement of FORTA-FI® will provide the citizens of Willard with a strong, durable street to enjoy for years to come!
