Extend Roadway Life with Petromat Overlays
Petromat - A Geotextile Paving Fabric that Works
Petromat is a system of fabric that has an asphalt cement tack coat. As Petromat is placed between layers, it becomes an integral part of the roadway. This geotextile forms a moisture barrier—a membrane keeping water infiltration to a minimum. This extends the life of the roadway. It also absorbs stresses placed on the road surface.
Petromat – An Economical System Since 1965
Roadway paving systems are proven over time. Utilizing Petromat overlay has been shown to be an economical way to improve roadway performance since 1965. Evidence of the savings is counted by maintenance reduction and roadway life-cycle costs. Throughout North America, paving fabric systems are used in a large number of applications because they are economical overall.
Paving Fabric Technology Adds to Roadway Endurance
Adding geotextile, paving fabric like Petromat to roadway installations adds to their endurance over time. It makes good sense to install the overlay because the greatest source of structure damage is the infiltration of moisture. Even if a pavement is saturated as little as ten percent of the time, the useful life of the pavement is cut in half.
