Did You Know? Geotextiles have 6 primary functions. Separation is the basic use of geotextiles and is widely practiced in road works and railway constructions.
The durability and mechanical properties of Geotextiles make them ideal for separating layers in construction works. A strong and flexible Geotextile is placed between the different layers in the construction preventing migration and mingling of materials, yet allowing free movement of water. This increaseds the bearing capacity and provides long-term stability of the foundation layers.
