HaTelit® Asphalt Underlay Installed on St. Tammany Parish Road Resurfacing
Nothing sticks to bitumen better than bitumen! That is why QSM provided Huesker’s HaTelit® asphalt underlay on a project in St. Tammany parish. The product incorporates a coating with a bitumen content of up to 60%. Manufactured by Huesker, HaTelit® is used for asphalt reinforcement.
Barriere Construction used five reels of HaTelit® asphalt underlay on a resurfacing project at Woodland Dr. in Covington. This is the first time HaTelit® was installed in St. Tammany parish, and it marks only the fourth time the product has been deployed in the state of Louisiana. Engineers say use of the underlay grid fabric makes good sense.
The use of Huesker’s HaTelit® asphalt underlay provides a significant extension in pavement performance. HaTelit® reduces annual maintenance costs, mitigates the effects of cracking in pavement, and thus extends the intervals between major rehabilitation and restoration projects.
