Asphalt renovation with Fibertex AM-2
The Heringsdorf airport is situated in the North Eastern Germany close to the Polish border. The Airport plays a major role in the development of the region being the centre of the area’s domestic and foreign trade.
The airport’s runway was renovated to comply with the increasing performance requirements. As the quality of the construction materials is decisive for the load bearingcapacity the suppliers were faced with high quality demands. Fibertex Geotextiles were chosen based on guarantee of a high uniform quality and Fibertex’s many years of experience in asphalt renovation particularly in adverse conditions.In total 106.000 m2 of Fibertex AM-2 were installed.
The Heringsdorf airport runway was originally constructed on concrete slabs coated with an asphalt wearing course. After 20 years of wear and tear the asphalt wearing course showed severe cracks and holes and was then permeable to water. Consequently, water penetrated through the asphalt wearing course causing its degradation.
