TenCate Polyfelt® Paving fabrics

TenCate Polyfelt® PGM paving fabric is mechanically bonded, continuous-filament, polypropylene nonwoven with optimum bitumen retention capacity. Polyfelt® PGM is economically more effective than conventional road maintenance methods. It retards reflective cracking of road surfaces by a combination of stress relief and sealing functions, and uniform bonding between the layers.

The benefits of TenCate Polyfelt® PGM at a glance:

  • Sealing: Polyfelt® PGM prevents rain water from penetrating into the road structure.
  • Stress relief: Minimize the differential stresses between substrate and new overlay. Crack propagation and reflective cracking is therefore reduced.
  • Adhesive bonding: Provides uniform bonding between old surface and new asphalt layers.
  • Ease of installation: When a laying device is used, Polyfelt® PGM can be installed easily and quickly without any fixing material.
  • Recycling: Asphalt layers reinforced with Polyfelt® PGM can be milled easily with conventional methods. 

    Typical Applications of Polyfelt® PGM

    Pavement Structure Rehabilitation

    Our paving geotextiles restores pavement surfaces and improves the new asphalt overlay on highways and roads for extended durabilty and lower maintenance cost.
