1. How to install Fortifix®?

Step by step:

  1. Mill the surface or apply a primer to smooth rough edges.
  2. Clean and dry the surface thoroughly with a high-pressure washer with vacuum.
  3. Apply a bitumen emulsion, preferably polymer modified, onto the dry surface.
  4. Unroll Fortifix®, manually or automatically, onto the wet tack coat.
  5. Spread aggregates onto Fortifix® to reduce ’sticking‘of construction tires.
  6. After the breaking of the emulsion, cover Fortifx® with a thin layer of hot asphalt.

3. Where to place Mesh Track® within the road structure?

We advise to put Mesh Track® not under top layer, but deep into the structure. It will simplify future road works when replacing the road completely.
