Why choose geosynthetics ? Why use ‘woven’ geotextiles?

2 February 2020

Optimal engineering of woven geotextiles

The woven fabric can be used from the shelve or can be customized. Variation in fabric construction - property, density and weave pattern - gives the opportunity to engineer the ideal geosynthetic material for any given application.

Inhouse expertise in extrusion - weaving - coating – lamination – tufting – needle punching

Our company proposes production technologies such as extrusion, weaving, coating, lamination, tufting and needle punching for geotextiles. These production processes offer customers the right technology in order to produce customized geotextiles and geocomposites.

Why choose ‘woven’ geotextiles? 5 reasons

  1. Tensile strength per weight of woven geotextiles offers best-in-class performance.

  2. Fabric construction of woven geotextiles is easily adaptable and customizable.

  3. Woven geotextiles represent a remarkable low volume, minimizing transport.

  4. Woven geotextiles deliver the best price/performance ratio.

  5. Woven geotextiles can offer a high modulus, valuable in reinforcement applications.

 

We offer the following range of products

Terralys®

  •  PP polypropylene woven geotextiles
