TenCate Introduces Nonwoven Cementitious Bond Breaker

Mirafi® 1450BB bond breaker is a needle-punched nonwoven geotextile composed of polypropylene fibers, which are formed into a stable network such that the fibers retain their relative position for use as an interlayer for separating cementitious pavement layers. Mirafi® 1450BB bond breaker is inert to biological degradation and resistant to naturally encountered chemicals, alkalis, and acids.

Mirafi® 1450BB can be used on deteriorated pavements showing signs of rutting, fatigue cracking, D-cracking and pavements that have been subjected to Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR). It also results in faster installation and reduced costs over traditional asphalt bond breakers.  Ultimately, Mirafi® 1450BB mitigates reflective cracking, promoting longer lasting pavements.  Mirafi® 1450BB is “Made in America” in an effort to play a key role in the economic recovery and revitalization of today’s heavy highway construction industry.
