ROAD WORKS

In road construction the nonwoven geotextiles GEO are used as separation layer between base soil and fill material, and as filtration layer whenever finer soil particles may be eroded by the forces of pore water. The presence of GEO has a reinforcement effect to the road foundation, which bearing capacity is remarkably improved. The use of GEO is essential to ensure the full efficiency of road during all its service life, avoiding expensive maintenance operations.

In this application, the nonwoven geotextiles are subjected to both mechanical and environmental stresses. During the installation it is exposed to weathering, to the compaction of coarse edged fill material, to the consequences of heavy traffic vehicles; during its service life it is exposed to a certain traffic volume and to aging. The characteristics of geotextiles must therefore fit the specific site conditions.

Separation layer between base soil and fill material, in the construction of road foundations and embankments
