Geotextiles are strong geosynthetic fabrics used in civil engineering construction projects, such as roads, dams, etc. Geotextiles are used with various foundation soil types to stabilize loose soil and prevent erosion.
Compared to other geosynthetic materials which can perform 1-2 functions only, Geotextiles materials can perform six functions very effectively.
Prime Geotextiles can act as a separation layer between varying soil types, which prevents the mixing of the subsoil and the aggregate base.
The filtration function of Prime Geotextiles allows for continuous liquid flow through the geotextile layer while preventing fine soil particles to migrate between those layers.
Prime Geotextile can allow for planar flow of liquid, also known as drainage function.
Prime Geotextiles can be incorporated into the soil structure to impart structural stability.
Prime Geotextile can act as a moisture barrier when impregnated with asphalt or other compounds. This is especially important in road construction and cracked pavement repair projects.
Prime Geotextile can be used as a protection function. This function is particularly useful in pavement overlays.
