In the Aldi-Springfield car park and paving replacement project, FORTA-FERRO® 2-1/4″ was used at a dosage of 7.5 lb. / cu. yd. in over 1,300 cubic yards of 6 in. thick pavement, and eliminated over 7,000 linear feet of control-joint saw-cuts. While conventional practice would recommend joint spacing at 12 to 15 ft. for this pavement thickness, the fiber-reinforced pavement expanded the panels to approximately 40 ft. x 40 ft. squares, reducing the saw-cutting volume by approximately 2/3. No major issues were encountered in the mixing, placement, or broom-finish used for the project. In addition to the savings for labor, joint-fillers, and any light temperature-steel reinforcement that might be considered for this type of project, the owners benefit by saving the cost of future joint-related repairs, and gaining additional pavement toughness and durability.
