PETROMAT Enviro

PETROMAT® Enviro

For 50 years the paving industry has relied on PETROMAT® as the most trusted asphalt paving fabric in the market. This year, Propex GeoSolutions is thrilled to launch PETROMAT® Enviro. Combining innovation and sustainable design, this patent pending technology is engineered to easily mill into small pieces so it can be recycled into reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and used in new hot mix asphalt (HMA) or warm mix asphalt (WMA). Additionally, Enviro provides unmatched moisture protection for roads while absorbing stress to slow fatigue and reflective cracking in asphalt pavement. But recyclable is only half the story. Enviro is an engineered interlayer solution that outperforms the competition from start to finish.

Features & Benefits

Easy & Efficient Installation

  • Engineered with optimal elongation to allow placement directly onto a milled surface
  • Flexible design allows smooth, wrinkle-free installation even around curves
  • Solar reflective fabric remains up to 50° F cooler than dark paving fabric, minimizing tack coat bleed through and tracking and enabling a cooler work environment.
  • Poses no safety hazard or irritation associated with fiberglass-based products
  • Reflective fabric provides better visibility during night paving

Unmatched Performance

  • Thicker design than most fiberglass-based paving mats, allows greater stress absorption to more efficiently slow fatigue and reflective cracking
  • Proven performance equal to an additional 1.5" asphalt concrete overlay thickness
  • Can be placed directly onto a milled surface without rupturing, unlike fiberglass-based products
  • Retains at least 0.20 gal./sq/yd. asphalt cement to become a true, 10-4 cm/sec pavement moisture barrier
  • Flexible design maintains an uncompromised moisture barrier, even if cracking does occur in the pavement
  • Provides 360 degree strength for multidirectional performance
  • Retains strength during installation and while in service better than fiberglass-based products

Recyclable

  • Engineered to be easily milled and recycled into new asphalt concrete

Primary Functions

  • Moisture Barrier
  • Stress Relief

Applications

  • Beneath asphalt concrete overlays
  • Within new asphalt concrete pavements
  • Chip seal surface treatments
