This European Standard specifies the relevant characteristics of metallic and non-metallic geotextiles and geotextile-related products used in the construction of pavements and asphalt overlays and the appropriate test methods to determine these characteristics. The intended use of these geotextiles and geotextile-related products is to fulfil one or more of the following functions: reinforcement, stress relief and barrier. The use of geotextiles and geotextile-related products is to be considered as a part of an interlayer and asphalt overlay system. This standard is not applicable to geosynthetic barriers, as defined in EN ISO 10318. This standard provides for evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard and for factory production control procedures. This standard defines requirements to be met by manufacturers and distributors with regard to the presentation of product properties. NOTE 1 Particular application cases or national specifications may contain additional requirements regarding product application or installation and specifying preferably standardized test methods, if they are technically relevant and not conflicting with European Standards.
