Paving Fabrics


Product Description

Thrace-LINQ paving fabrics extend the life of asphalt concrete overlays by delaying the formation of stress-related cracking and by improving structural section performance through surface water infiltration. When used in conjunction with an asphalt cement tack coat, they provide a pavement interlayer that absorbs and dissipates stress while also providing a moisture barrier. They can also extend the life of a seal coat (chip seal) and dramatically improve stone retention.

Available in weights that meet all industry needs, Thrace-LINQ 140EX also fits the requirements of national standard AASHTO M 288 for Paving Fabric.

Features & Benefits
