The flexible mesh for effective and durable reinforcement of asphalt layers HaTelit C 40/17 is a reinforcement mesh made of high-modulus polyester yarns combined with an ultra-light non-woven fabric. More than 50 years of experience and further development prove that HaTelit C is a very durable and thus economical solution that resists permanent dynamic loads very well, which is due to the special properties of polyester.

Sustainability Outcomes

The incorporation of HaTelit C 40/17 into a pavement rehabilitation design not only extends the service life of the asphalt layers above it, it also has the potential to eliminate 24,300kg of CO2 emissions into the environment for every kilometre of road it is applied in. It provides sustainable, economic and financial outcomes in all phases of the project by reducing maintenance costs, increasing asset longevity and reducing carbon emissions and possible emission penalties. Although asphalt reinforcement is not a new technology, this initiative is fairly new in Australia and may be considered innovative. The incorporation of asphalt reinforcement in various level of road layer works provides various sustainable advantages over what is considered traditional pavement construction.

HaTelit C40/17 allows for the reuse of aggregates recycled on site. It can also be recycled and reused in road and runway pavements.

Studies confirm significant CO2 reduction through geosynthetics. Geosynthetics are high-quality and durable synthetic materials whose sustainability is proven.
The 2010 study “Sustainable Geosystems in Civil Engineering Applications” (WRAP) impressively demonstrates the significant savings potential in the use of geosynthetics on the basis of individual case studies. Compared to conventional construction methods, up to 89% CO2 emissions may be saved.

Innovative geotextiles can thus make a resource-efficient contribution to permanently reducing CO2 emissions in the construction industry.
