Product Development and Testing
Part of Simpson Strong-Tie since 2012, S&P is a leading engineering and manufacturing firm with headquarters in Switzerland and operations throughout Europe. In addition to a number of innovative and progressive engineering solutions, S&P developed asphalt reinforcement grids that have been used successfully in Europe for 20 years. Suitable for many applications, the grids are proven to strengthen and extend the service life of roads and roundabouts, bus lanes and terminals, airport runways and other paved surfaces.
As an extension of our commitment to building safer, stronger structures, Simpson Strong-Tie is working jointly with our S&P team to build stronger, more durable roads in the US. We are currently conducting rigorous full-scale tests, in cooperation with the University of Texas at Arlington, to validate the performance of Glasphalt G, Carbophalt G and Carbophalt G 200/200 for roadways and other heavy-use areas across the US and ultimately develop reliable design criteria.
