Geotextiles are made out of polypropylene filaments. They are extremely damage resistant and they are characterized by high water permeability and extended resistance to UV light (direct sunlight).
Polypropylene geotextiles – applications:
Polypropylene geogrids are made out of high resistance polyester filaments covered with polymer protective coating.
Polypropylene geogrid is an ideal material to be used while working with coarse-grained, cohesive subgrades. It is highly durable for stretching whilst slow creepage. Moreover, it is highly erosion resistant – it does not lose its properties even after several years in humid areas. Also, the polymer coating protects it against the UV light.
Polypropylene geogrids – applications:
• reinforcement of unsupported slopes,
• stabilisation of subgrade in railway construction,
• foundation work,
• hydraulic engineering etc.
Areas of the application of polypropylene geogrids include:
