This research focuses on the interface shear performance between geotextile and soil with various percentages of bentonite and sodium bentonite for landfill stability by using Direct Shear Test. Admixtures are mixed with clay to improve its performance as a liner material due to their ability to fill the voids between soil particles and also the most effective sealants. The aim of this study is focused on evaluating the effectiveness of bentonite and sodium bentonite on improving interface shear strength of fine soil. In this study, direct shear box was used to measure the interface shear strength of soil with different percentages of bentonite and sodium bentonite at optimum moisture content. Analysis shows that the most suitable percentage is of 5 % of bentonite and 2.5 % of sodium bentonite due to the highest interface shear strength of the mixture with geosynthetic. It is clearly shown that 2.5 % sodium bentonite is the most suitable percentage to be used as admixture for landfill stability as it gives higher interface shear strength.
