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.
