Basalt reinforcing mesh is designed for reinforcing road and highway overlays to prolong the pavement lifespan by reducing the effects of reflective cracking caused by traffic loads, age hardening and temperature cycling. Pavement life between service maintenance can be prolonged significantly. Basalt reinforcing mesh makes it possible to reduce thickness of asphalt concrete pavement up to 20%.


Market offers various types of basalt reinforcing meshes. Most popular meshes for roads are:

Open cell mesh;
Closed cell mesh.

Advantages and benefits:

  • Higher mechanical strength and modulus;
  • Higher resistance to chemical aggressive environment (compared to meshes made from E-glass);
  • The melting point of basalt fiber is 1450 deg.C. Typical paving temperatures will not cause any loss of strength or distortion which may occur with synthetic material;
  • Lower application temperature than for synthetic material that is especially important for north regions;
  • Less elongation before break compared to synthetic polymer materials;
  • Easily milled using typical milling equipment;
  • Does not stretch and pull like polymer meshes;
  • No special equipment is required to install the reinforcement;
  • Basalt mesh is environment friendly and is based on natural material that is found worldwide.
