SYNTHETIC FILTERS IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

This short report is intended to summarize the available information on three synthetic filters. The filters are easily handled and installed and as such may successfully compete with the regular aggregate filters in cost and convenience. Unfortunately only one project in British Columbia could be investigated, making just a small start into a complete synthetic filter investigation. In an attempt to retrieve a few of the characteristics of these materials when frozen, a few Filter X and Ero-Gard samples were tested in a saturated and air dried condition at -20 deg F. The results from these tests are listed in this report.
