Geotextile Used to Separate Roadway Subgrade
Geotextile Material to Separate Aggregates
(From Falls Church, Virginia)
Question: Regarding a geotextile to separate roadway subgrade from base, I need a quote for a geotextile that can be used to separate a roadway subgrade from the base. I do not have any specs yet. Can you recommend any?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry! GEI Works offers a variety of Woven Geotextiles and Non Woven Fabric Geotextiles. You have some choices when it comes to picking out the perfect geotextile for your specific need. While they all share the same qualities and functions, they vary slightly in performance value. They all are made from 100% polypropylene, which stands up against natural, chemical, or UV degradation.
Non Woven Geotextile Applications and Uses
The Non Woven Geotextile can be used as paving fabric or asphalt overlay. Its high melting point of 300 degress Fahrenheit makes this fabric a good choice.
You can also consider the Non Woven Geotextile. This fabric's major function is separation and can last for years, preventing repair or repaving for an extended time.
Every geotextile, woven or nonwoven, has its own unique properties to become a perfect fit for your project. Feel free to check out our Geotextile Line and technical specifications for weights and strengths.
Geotextile to Separate Roadway Subgrade
Geotextiles used to separate different aggregates and materials can include anything from woven to nonwoven fabric material. In general, woven materials are commonly used in applications that require high strength and control. Nonwoven, by contrast, can be ideal for stabilization and draining, as its pores allow water to filter through the fabric while stabilizing the surrounding areas.
