Fibermat© SAM/SAMI (Stress Absorbing Membrane/Interlayer)
FiberMat® SAM/SAMI is a high-performance, stress-absorbing, membrane/interlayer-type surface treatment. It is constructed with a one-pass application of a sandwiched matrix of polymer modified asphalt emulsion, chopped fiberglass fibers and a second layer of emulsion. The strong, adhesive membrane is then covered with high-quality aggregate. The tensile strength of the fibers gives outstanding reinforcement to the surface, bridging cracks and other distresses in the existing pavement.
FiberMat® SAM/SAMI is the ideal, high-performance treatment for correcting and protecting structurally sound pavements with aged or distressed surfaces. Over blacktop or concrete, FiberMat® waterproofs and seals cracked and distressed surfaces, restoring skid resistance and enhancing appearance. It can also be used as an interlayer prior to the placement of a hot mix asphalt overlay.
- Greatly reduces reflective cracking
- Increases strength with fiberglass fibers, resisting stresses placed on the surface treatment
- Waterproofs and seals small cracks and imperfections
- Enriches aged and oxidized asphalt pavements
- Improves skid resistance
- Protects underlying pavement from traffic wear
- Product can be milled or reclaimed and recycled without any construction or production issues

Sealing of minor cracks, hot mix leveling to correct surface deformations and cleaning of the surface prior to treatment.
Spray Application of Emulsion
Spraying of approximately 0.42 gallons per square yard of modified asphalt emulsion in a sandwich around a layer of finely chopped fiberglass fibers.
Cover Aggregate Application
Placement of approximately 20–25 pounds per square yard of 3/8” cover aggregate.
Immediate rolling for proper orientation and embedment of the cover aggregate into the emulsion layer.
Removal of excess cover aggregate by sweeping after 2–5 days of curing
