Appliqué Technologies International Announces the Introduction of its Prefabricated Flexible Pavement (PFP)™ Technology

Prefabricated Flexible Pavement (PFP)

The inherent performance qualities of this material are flexibility, strength, and exceptional weathering characteristics …which are all very desirable when talking about asphalt and pavement.

PFP™ is a manufactured material that is comprised of a polymer previously used to provide blast and ballistic protection to American warfighters in theater. “The material was re-engineered and optimized to be compatible with asphalt and can now be used to effectuate semi-permanent pavement repairs and overlays,” states Todd Bullivant, the company’s Technical Director. He further states, “The inherent performance qualities of this material are flexibility, strength, and exceptional weathering characteristics …which are all very desirable when talking about asphalt and pavement.”

PFP™ expands the company’s patent pending Road Armour™ Appliqués to larger Prefabricated Flexible Pavement (PFP) that can be delivered in large rolls to be used in overlaying residential driveways, larger sections of parking lots, and short sections of municipal roadways. Traditional asphalt placement with heavy equipment is replaced with Prefabricated Flexible Pavement™ laid in a continuous manner.

With this latest advancement the company has redefined pavement types and presented a viable alternative to property owners, road owners, and engineers.

The company’s new technology offers several benefits including:

  •     Drastic reduction in the amount of paving and other heavy equipment on-site
  •     Prefabricated Flexible Pavement is produced outside the work zone in a safer and controlled environment
  •     Faster construction. Curing takes place off-site and under optimum conditions. For example, humidity, temperature, etc…can be controlled.
  •     Better quality assurance and control of the paving materials and the paving process
  •     Prefabrication reduces construction site worker hazards that normally result from traffic exposure. On-site construction is much faster with no exposure to noxious asphalt fumes.

About Appliqué Technologies International

Appliqué Technologies utilizes patent pending technologies to repair potholes, cracks and other pavement defects. Rather than filling potholes and cracks, the company’s technology involves injecting an environmentally safe, military-inspired, super high strength Road Foam™ that is engineered to stay in a liquid state to penetrate all loose base material and then expand to lock it into place for no less than 2 years. A very thin prefabricated micro-surface, called a Road Armour™ appliqué, is then applied over the foam.
