CASE STUDY: Vulcan Materials Finds ACE Fiber a Valuable Addition to Major Resurfacing Project

By October 31, 2016 Asphalt

Vulcan Materials Company, the largest producer of construction aggregates in the nation, had an upcoming job they knew would benefit from ACE Fiber. The Company’s Phoenix division turned to Surface Tech to provide the additive for a 1,500-ton resurface of the Christown Spectrum Mall parking lot in Phoenix, AZ.

With Cactus Paving as the contractor, the job took two days to complete.  CBC Engineering of Ohio performed the mix at Vulcan’s Phoenix plant, providing daily reports and an engineer-stamped certification of the mix. The job went without a hitch, from start to finish.

The relationship Vulcan enjoys with Surface Tech is but an example of the formidability that occurs when highly respected producers independently take on its aramid fiber product with intentions of impacting geography with additional added value products that are relevant, cost effective, easy to adopt and provide impact benefit for all who use the finish product.

“ACE Fiber is a superior additive product. Coupled with its dosing certification, we find it to be a high value solution for our customers looking for fiber inclusion. Our relationship with Surface Tech is a good example of cultural alignment and dependability,” said Vulcan Materials District Sales Manager Dominick Martinez.
