More details The presentation will explain how Forta-Fi differs from other fibres that are typically added to asphalt whose performance claims generally revolve around being able to keep more binder in the mix compared to a control sample. The presentation will use case studies and refer to numerous independent tests and academic papers to demonstrate how Forta-Fi, a blend of polymer and aramid fibres that has been on the market in the USA since 1982, is truly a structurally functioning material that can increase the lifespan of a pavement by over 50% by imparting additional properties to the whole of the mix.
