PAVEMENT REINFORCEMENT - THE TOPIC OF THE 1ST GLASGRID ACADEMY IN INDIA

GlasGrid Academy openning speech
17 May 2016
Saint-Gobain ADFORS India has successfully organised the first GlasGrid Academy in India on 22nd April 2016 at Hotel Taj Vivanta, New Delhi

The objective of the event was to share general knowledge of ADFORS asphalt reinforcement product range (GlasGrid) with various stakeholders of road/airport industry from India. Chief guest for the event was Mr. R.K. Pandey (Member – Projects, NHAI). Very sharp questions were asked by participants from MES (Military Engineering Services), AAI (Airport Authority of India), highway consultants which were answered by Dr. Lee, ADFORS' Asia technical expert for asphalt reinforcement. 

Dr. Lee touched many important aspects of geotextiles, such as range of products, product compositions, applications, performance, importance of testing, installation values, life cycle cost, important design cases etc...Through lab and field test measurements, we could highlight the significant performance advantage of ADFORS asphalt reinforcement products versus competition although products might look "exactly the same" on paper (datasheet). This was an important takeway for the audience.

 

Due to the high interest raised and number of questions we were short in time and had to close the session leaving some questions unanswered, unfortunately. However, ADFORS will organize specific technical webinars in the near future - focusing on special topics / applications.
