Following advantages make this product superior over an E-Glass Mesh: 

  • Ecologically safe
  • Withstands very high temperature of molten asphalt
  • Very high strength and durability
  • Alkali-resistant and chemically inert
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Will not damage tires if exposed to road surface
  • 2.7 times lighter than metallic mesh, for easier handling and reduced transport costs
  • Up to 47% increase in asphalt surface life on roads and highways.

Basalt Geo-Mesh is also ideal for soil and embankment stabilization and land-fill coverings, due to its high strength and environmental and ecological safety.

Meshes can be offered with and without resin coatings.
