Geotextile is a permeable textile material with a planar structure. It is used as a fundamental support for soil and foundations. It is applicable on engineering projects.

This product is made of non-biodegradable synthetic fibers. They get entwined through mechanical and thermical processes. It is has permeable structure, high strength properties (resistance to stress-strain), and it is resistant to tearing and also chemical degradation.

  • To produce woven Geotextile it is necessary to entwine the fibers, which generally results in right angles (warp and weft) of two or more fibers, filaments, or other elements.
  • To produce non-woven Geotextile it is necessary to tie up the fibers (by friction, cohesion or adhesion) orientating them specifically or randomly.

Adventages of Using Geotextiles:

  • They represent an economical alternative to the traditional methods of construction.
  • They are versatile, flexible, resistant, and they adjust to the onsite contours and conditions.
  • They are easy to handle and fast to install; they do not require specialized equipment to do so.
  • hey have a wide variety of applications on the construction areas and they increase the life time of the installations.

It is important to take into consideration the fundamental necessity of having a reliable technical support to obtain a suitable design, production, selection, and installation of the geotextiles on each specific project; in consequence ensure the appropriate function of the geotextile and its further economical benefits.
