Tensar International Corp. (TIC) has acquired the assets and business of Endurablend Systems. With the acquisition, TIC adds a composite micro overlay system to its product offerings. The newly acquired business will relocate its headquarters to Atlanta and operate as a business unit under TIC’s direction.
The Endurablend System is a polymer cement slurry surfacing (PCSS) product that provides a flexible, durable barrier over asphalt and concrete pavements. Composed of an acrylic compound mixed on-site with Type I Portland cement and aggregate, it curtails pavement raveling and spalling as it establishes a skid-resistant surface.
A Tensar press release said that the addition of Endurablend to the Tensar product line expands the company’s capabilities to improve roadway performance. When road cracks are present, Endurablend is recommended with the GlasGrid Pavement Reinforcement System, which reinforces pavement layers to reduce the effects of reflective cracking. Manufactured by Saint-Gobain Technical Fabrics, the GlasGrid System is distributed exclusively by Tensar International.
“Tensar has always been at the forefront of innovative pavement solutions,” said Nicholas Reck, TIC’s application technology manager. “We will continue to challenge the limits of this field and look forward to becoming a leader in pavement preservation.”
