ACE XP™ aramid polymer fiber additive is a technological breakthrough in both asphalt hot mix and balanced mix design.
Surface Tech bundles high-strength para-aramid fibers and coats them with Sasobit wax that dissipates at 170 F to create ACE XP Polymer Fibers™. Compared to raw aramid fibers that are almost impossible to measure and control, ACE XP delivers rock solid assurance that you get what you’re paying for.
With ACE XP and our precision dosing, fiber into the plant equals fiber into the mix. You won’t see any fly away fibers. Plus, you get reports you can trust, and ACE XP precision dosing delivers guaranteed spec compliance and maximum fiber reinforcement.
With ACE XP, you can spend more time tightening up plant performance instead of feeding fibers into the mix.
This product helps solve balanced mix design challenges. Asphalt professionals can expect outstanding results in both crack and rut resistance.
Sustainability with Asphalt
Surface Tech completed the verification process to achieve an Environmental Product Declaration for ACE XP Polymer Fiber®, its advanced aramid polymer fiber additive.
ACE XP utilizes the tensile strength of aramid to address the two major distresses affecting asphalt performance today—cracking and rutting. It disperses over 19 million para-aramid fibers throughout each ton of mix, providing a three-dimensional reinforcement that increases the asphalt’s resistance to reflective cracking, rutting, and fatigue. ACE XP makes asphalt pavement stronger and last longer, thus increasing the pavement’s life expectancy, reducing maintenance costs, and providing enhanced sustainability to asphalt pavements.
