About

HaTelit XP is made from the raw material polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and thus offers you special properties. PVA raw material allows for use in high alkaline scenarios. This reinforcement mesh can be installed on asphalt and concrete surfaces as it is alkali-resistant. Combined with the well-known advantages of all HaTelit products, this unique product offers you a great deal of flexibility in the face of various challenges.

Sustainability Outcomes

The incorporation of Hatelit XP into a pavement rehabilitation design not only extends the service life of the asphalt layers above it, it has the potential to eliminate 24,000kg 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 XP 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 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.
