Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain when are being used in association with soil. Geotextiles have a wide range of applications and are currently applied to benefit many civil engineering applications including roads, airfields, railroads, embankments, retaining structures, reservoirs, canals, dams, bank protection and coastal engineering.
Since polypropylene geotextiles perform well when exposed to water and other inorganic compounds, they are used for some applications such as pond liners, bank weed control, liners for garden fountain systems, filtration, dividers in ponds, pile wraps, lagoon liners, turbidity curtains and etc.
Most of these applications are not technical in comparison to a beach reclamation system or a retaining wall, but they are practical and cost-efficient applications of geosynthetics, and their uses are growing.
They are typically made from polypropylene or polyester. In many cases, geotextiles replace or reduce the need to use natural aggregate construction materials which provide both economic and environmental benefits. We offer a range of geotextiles including nonwoven and composites.
Our Nonwoven Geotextiles are made from polypropylene fibers that are needle-punched to form a dimensionally stable network and have a wide range of applications in civil environmental engineering and construction projects. the geotextile usages are:
- Filtration of soils in drainage applications by retaining soil particles while allowing for the free flow of water.
- Separation and stabilization in road and railway constructions.
- Prevention of soil movement in erosion control measures.
- Cushioning and protection in many containment projects.
- Our geotextiles are available in varying strengths and thicknesses to ensure appropriate material selection for the project requirements.
