The first of the firm’s new ecoLine range is the HaTelit C asphalt reinforcement grid. The firm has been offering its proven asphalt reinforcement grid for over 40 years for the rehabilitation of asphalt pavements, This is now available in the ecoLine range, with the same quality and properties. Other ecoLine products are to follow soon.

The asphalt reinforcement HaTelit C product is now available, being made from 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) yarns.

The recycled material is produced from disposed PET bottles, which can be fed back into the production cycle in the form of granulate. The firm says that the recycled PET it uses is an equivalent substitute for the original PET yarn. It has the same high quality and the same properties.

This offers considerable environmental benefits. Every 1kg of recycled PET yarn saves around 4.3kg of CO2 emissions if conventional PET yarn is avoided. This corresponds to a car journey of 33km.
