Ease of Mixing.

AQU’s superior delivery system ensures efficient and thorough distribution and mixing of the 19 million Aramid fibers that go into each ton of asphalt. When distributed and mixed, the Aramid fibers provide 3-D reinforcement and property enhancements throughout the entire asphalt mix and ultimately, the finished pavement or overlay.

AQU Fiber can easily be included in the asphalt mixing process at both batch and drum plant facilities. Drum and Batch plants are efficiently fed with AQU Fiber being added to the Rap collar or pug mill/weigh hopper respectively in proper weight to match the mixing speed. AQU Fibers can also be used in cold or dry formulations.

AQU Fiber is measured in Ton Equivalents (TEs), which is based on the optimal fiber count of approximately 19 million fibers (2. 1 ounces aramid) per ton of asphalt mix. AQU Fiber doses at 2.8 ounces per TE; 0.7 ounces of water binder completely dissipates in the mix, leaving the 2.1 ounces of Aramid delivered. The water binder is excellent for controlling the Aramid effectively into any mix, delivering the intended dosing (2.1 ounces per TE).

With your AQU FIBER order,

a certified technician comes to your plant location to pre-con and perform the entire mixing process as part of our QA Program. This ensures the mix is accurate and dosed right. No cause for plant interruption, additional modifications, drum clean out, etc. And a daily report and project stamped-certification are delivered as well. A direct example of ease of adoption.
