Propex pioneered paving interlayer fabrics with Petromat® Original more than fifty years ago. Today it continues to be the most proven asphalt paving fabric in the market. No other product provides a better pavement moisture barrier or stress absorbing interlayer to prevent reflective cracking.
Petromat® Original provides maximum protection against moisture and cracking. It creates a stress-absorbing interlayer to slow the progress of reflective cracks. Petromat® Original replaces 1.5” of asphalt, saving an average of $50/lane mile, while doubling road service life. Petromat® Original improves durability and performance within rural chip seal pavement surface treatments and reduces need for additional maintenance. One roll is wide enough to cover a lane in one pass, and the ease of installation reduces time and labor costs.
