PRS-Neoweb™is the only geocell to break the subgrade barrier. No longer limited to soft subgrade soils, PRS-Neoweb was designed for heavy duty pavement reinforcement of the base layer of asphalt pavements. PRS-Neoweb improves the layer modulus of structural layers. High quality base aggregate can be replaced with locally available less expensive granular infill, due to the increased stiffness of the PRS-Neoweb cellular confinement. The result – lower costs for every square meter of highway.

Based on the Neoloy® novel polymeric alloy, PRS-Neoweb geocells are engineered for long-term confinement. The high modulus PRS-Neoweb enables a reduction in the layer thickness of the asphalt, base and subgrade layers – for even more savings in capital and life-cycle costs. PRS-Neoweb is considered a perpetual stabilization solution suitable for perpetual pavements.

Benefits

  • Asphalt layer – reduces the asphalt thickness due to the improved modulus of the base
  • Base layer – replace the base layer infill with subbase quality infill
  • Subbase layer – reduce the subbase thickness
  • Save one or more complete deep milling and overlay of new asphaltic layers
  • Provide long-term confinement and compaction throughout the design-life of the road
  • Utilize lower cost infill material (subbase quality) to replace base quality aggregate
  • Cost effective – lowers construction costs
  • Lowers lifecycle cost due to reduced maintenance
  • Sustainable – reduces quarrying, hauling, fuel and carbon
  • Improved pavement lifespan reduces rehabilitation work and downtime
  • Implementing sustainable technology saves natural resources
