Specifications of “SANGEOTEX” geotextile

Geotextile, also known as geosynthetics or geosynthetic materials, is a fairly new building material. Syllable “geo” stands for applications of the material such as reinforcing layers in the ground or the construction of waterproofing roofing membranes. Synthetic materials provides geosynthetics with a variety of beneficial properties such as resistance to corrosion and decaying as well as flexibility and durability.

Main properties of “SANGEOTEX” geotextiles

High elasticity modulus. The geotextile is capable of withstanding significant loads and serve as reinforcement at relatively small deformations.

Large elongation at break. Depending on a type of “SANGEOTEX” geotextile, elongation under the maximum load of up to 60% can be achieved. Therefore, local damage does not lead to the destruction of the material and the geotextile still retains its function.

Filtering ability originates from the specific structure of the material, which precludes the introduction of soil particles into the pores and clogging. This feature provides stable filter properties of the material under pressure of the soil and in high vibration environments.

High resistance to local mechanical damage, which is especially important when laying the material.

“SANGEOTEX” geotextile offers an ease of laying. The rolls small and lightweight, thereby reducing transportation, storage, and labor costs. Rolls of the material can be sawn on-site by chain or hand saw.

“SANGEOTEX” geotextile is water-proof. When used in wet conditions, the weight of the rolls remains unchanged.

“SANGEOTEX” geotextile is produced using a standard needle-punching method or thermally.

“SANGEOTEX” geotextile boasts superior durability and high elasticity modulus, allowing it sustain loads and distribute it, thus performing a reinforcing function with relatively little deformation.

Geosynthetics are most commonly deployed in road and hydraulic construction, environmental and underground works as well as landscape design. Their use has not only facilitated the construction work related to strengthening of slopes, construction of retaining walls, strengthening the foundations of roads, but also reduced the volume of excavation and concrete works and cut their costs.
