Maccaferri stands out as a technical reference in the sector of Asphalt Pavement.
On days 13th and 14th October in Lima, Maccaferri participated at the 1st National Congress asphalt pavements.
This important event was organized by the Latin American Institute for Research and Viários Studies (Instituto Latinoamericano de Investigación y Estudios Viales – ILIEV).
This is a nonprofit Institute which promotes technical rigour, scientific study and academic work. The purpose of ILIEV is to be a means of communication and exchange of information between companies in Peru and other Latin American countries to improve and advance road and transport systems including the fields of new technologies, equipment and state-of-the-art material specifications.
During the event several technical papers were presented, as follows:
• Construction Technologies for flexible pavements
• Surface Treatments
• Technical conservation and maintenance of floors
• Aggregates and asphalt mixtures
• Quality control
• Recycling of asphalt mixtures
Maccaferri collaborated technically with the events and, for this our engineers Vladimir Aquise and Romel King Bazán presented a lecture which included the benefits of the use of Fiberglass Geogrid for asphalt resurfacing:
“Theme: Repavimentación asphalt con vidrio fiber geomallas.”
The geogrid MacGrid AR, is a geocomposite formed by the association of geogrid MacGrid coupled to a Nonwoven geotextiles specially developed for strengthening of pavement structures typically run on soils with low bearing capacity.
The lecture ignited the interest within hundreds of specialist engineers in the industry. Again, Maccaferri stands out as a technical reference in the sectors in which it operates.
