Ensuring the strongest surface possible, FORTAfied asphalt can help create safer and more durable roads. With FORTA-FI®, asphalt is reinforced without adding to the thickness of roadway—in fact, with FORTA-FI®, the asphalt thickness can be reduced by up to 35% or you can see an increase in the life of FORTAfied asphalt of up to 50%.
At Coleman Moore, we proudly supply FORTA-FI® because it’s proven to be a cost effective, easy-to-use asphalt reinforcement product. Asphalt with FORTA-FI® has been continuously and extensively lab and field-tested. In these tests, FORTAfied asphalt showed the following results over non-FORTAfied asphalt:
Higher crack propagation resistance
Strength increase (150%)
Increased fracture energy at failure
Higher tensile strain at failure
Lower thermal cracking (even at 14°F [-10°C])
Higher fatigue life
FORTA-FI® helps asphalt distribute forces evenly, making it perfect for airports, interstates, streets, highways, industrial parking lots, and beyond. Because the application is so simple (it can be mixed in drum or batch plants) and it feeds so easily, production time is reduced.
Benefits of FORTA-FI®:
Improved tensile strength
Marshall Stability and Flow
Higher rutting, thermal cracking, and surface cracking resistance
Extended service life of pavement (up to 50%)
