It is a nonwoven paving fabric used in the maintenance and repair
of road surfaces. It was designed specifically for Australian
conditions and has been used here for 25 years with superior
How does It paving fabrics work?
It is installed in the bitumen layer of the road, providing a
stress alleviating and waterproofing function that prevents
pavement cracking. It doubles the life of new asphalt overlays.
It paving fabrics are available in roll widths of up to 6m. It has
a high melting point with low shrinkage rates. It is double needled
with equal strength in both directions and is manufactured to ISO
9001 quality standards.
Using It paving fabrics to reinforce asphalt overlays will double
the life of roads and pavements, reducing maintenance costs and
minimising waste. It can accommodate irregular formations and
withstand high temperatures. It is simple and safe to install and
has a lower carbon footprint compared to traditional methods of
It paving fabrics are typically manufactured to suit the width of
your pavement or road lane. This dramatically reduces the
installation costs and allows for a safer construction process
Road crack prevention & extended use
When surface cracks appear on roads, moisture penetration can cause
the road base to fail. It paving fabrics extend the life of the
road pavement by providing a waterproof, stress-relieving membrane
between the old and new surfaces.
Road reconstruction with cement treated bases
Roads with cement bases can crack due to shrinkage, thermal effects
and fatigue. It paving fabrics work by reinforcing the surface,
limiting reflective cracking and waterproofing the surface seal.
Crack prevention in asphaltic pavement overlays
When saturated with bitumen It seals the existing pavement and
reinforces the surface. It can be used on localised crack sealing
or patching as well as full-width resealing. It can be manufactured
to suit your specific needs and is available in a range of widths.
Low volume roads
Because It paving fabrics can be used directly over the pavement
formation, local materials can be used which saves on haulage
