Woven geotextiles are made from polypropylene filaments that are woven together to produce a strong fabric with much less permeability than non-woven geotextiles. Slit filaments improve the properties of soil by absorbing and dissipating tensile forces, thus reducing the ability for soil to deform.
Stabilization geotextiles are also known as Rip Rap Fabrics. These products bridge the gap between poor quality soils and more desirable aggregates. Stabilization fabrics prevent stone and other materials from sinking into the poor soil, which could compromise the stability of the aggregate.
Medium Strength Geotextiles
Medium Strength Geotextiles can be used on multiple sites: slopes, embankments, roadways, and landfills. These woven geotextiles are produced with the mechanical properties of stabilization fabrics in order to support high tensile force, but are also engineered to have excellent permittivity. The hybrid nature of these geotextiles means they can solve multiple problems at once. When Medium Strength Geotextiles are applicable on your site, you can see upwards of 40% savings on material costs and labor.
Monofilament products add another dimension to the world of woven geotextiles.
Woven monofilaments are formed with round polypropylene filaments that are woven to various opening sizes. The result is a geotextile fabric that combines excellent flow ability with durability and strength.
Monofilament products have various applications. They filter soil particles with high permittivity in order to create erosion control stabilization. The high modulus structure of the woven filaments can improve the mechanical properties of the subgrade solid and fill. Monofilaments can also be placed below roadways to keep the dissimilar material in a different entity in order to improve the functional structure.
