Sustainable Porous Paving Solutions
KBI Flexi®-Pave, our flagship product, represents the genesis and cornerstone of our technology and product line. Developed in 2001, it created the gold standard for flexible porous paving. Years of development and refinement have created the world’s finest porous paving technology; able to withstand the rigors of modern infrastructure while providing long-lasting, comprehensive, cost-effective solutions.
Flexi®-Pave has extensive pore spaces that provide stormwater management advantages, but doesn’t sacrifice strength. Combined with aggregate and the proper substrate, Flexi®-Pave supports loads up to 80,000 pounds without cracking, helping solve some of the toughest infrastructure challenges. The result is a cooler surface that reduces heat island effects, controls pollution runoff, and enhances groundwater recharge. With more than a decade of experience,Flexi®-Pave has been used to construct access roads, driveways, parking areas, sidewalks, trails, jogging paths, golf cart paths, pool decks, ramps, tree surrounds, stormwater drains and many more surfaces.

KBI Flexi®-Pave Engineering Drawing
The surgical BMP that solves drainage issues
KBI Flexi®-Drain provides a low impact, surgical alternative to treat drainage problems. From cross-cut installations that prevent roadside runoff in driveways to solving standing water issues, it’s the perfect answer to a variety of challenges. It can be installed in new development areas as well as retrofit applications, providing an ounce of prevention that solves a ton of problems.
The low maintenance, sustainable alternative for planting beds
KBI Flexi®-Mulch provides the same sustainable technology of our core infrastructure products in an offering targeted toward commercial and municipal planting beds. It combines our multiple color offerings with our proprietary binder to provide a sustainable mulch alternative. You’ll benefit from years of a long-lasting, nonmigrating product that has all the benefits of natural mulch without the mess and expense of ongoing maintenance.
The long lasting, sustainable solution for pothole repairs
KBI Flexi®-Pothole is a specialty product designed for municipal and commercial entities that have ongoing road maintenance issues. Using our Next Generation technology, we’ve developed a pothole repair system that outlasts everything else on the market in an easy to install, quick setting product.
The modular protection system for flat roof applications
KBI Flexi®-Roof is designed for the flat roof market and provides a sustainable solution that protects your roofing membrane in a secure, non-migrating ballast. It’s impervious to hail and provides protection for your roofing investment. Sold in premade panels, it goes down quickly to allow for immediate use and access to your flat roof.
The architectural advancement in porous surfacing
Perma-Drive is an all-stone alternative porous pavement. While not flexible like KBI Flexi®-Pave, it is tough enough to be used for applications such as parking stalls.
The Flexi®-Twall retaining wall that will provide superior support, while allowing the flow of up to 3000 gallons per square foot of water to flow through the Flexi®-Twall
Some Uses :
KBI Flexi®-Safe provides a playground soft surface which meets up to 7’ fall height requirements per ASTM guidelines. Its 100% rubber, that it bound together providing a softer surface than KBI Flexi®-Pave. Beyond being soft for playgrounds, it also is porous, providing much needed drainage, as well as flex in case of ground movement from tree roots.
KBI’s self-install option for qualified customers
KBI’s Green Partnership Program™ (GPP) provides municipal, educational, and commercial clients the option to self-install our most popular products. The GPP trains your staff on proper techniques and methods to solve everyday infrastructure challenges while providing installation flexibility and cost savings.

APAI's Scrap Tire Construction Products Division (STCP) uses K.B. Industries (KBI) Technology to help lower Co2 emissions by utilizing scrap tires in the manufacture of their sustainable construction products. Instead of incinerating the scrap tires that would normally release CO2 into the Earth's atmosphere, products like our KBI Flexi®-Pave and KBI Flexi®-Twall, we use these scrap tires to manufacture green products to help sustain the environment.
The use of recycled tires within KBI's STCP contributes significantly to the waste reduction issue. For example; each square meter of KBI Flexi®-Pave uses four recycled passenger tires.
Furthermore, the porous nature of KBI Flexi®-Pave helps to reduce surface water run-off and aleviate pressure on drainage infrastructure, directing water instead to natural aquifers. The filtration that occurs when water passes through KBI Flexi®-Pave is also proven to remove orthophosphates and dissolved nitrates, promoting cleaner water recharge. Furthermore, laboratory leach testing of virgin KBI Flexi®-Pave samples also shows virtually no material leaching as a result of water flow.
