Geotextiles are used to filter, stabilize, reinforce, separate, drain and isolate soils in a variety of civil construction applications. In many cases, geotextiles replace or reduce the need to use natural aggregate construction materials providing both economic and environmental benefits.
Nilex offers a complete range of geotextiles including nonwoven, woven, monofilaments, composites and high strength materials.
Custom roll sizes, sewing and other geotextile fabrication services are available upon request.
Nonwoven geotextiles have a wide range of applications in civil environmental engineering and construction projects. Their uses include:
Produced from high quality polypropylene fibres, Nilex's Nonwoven Geotextiles are needle punched to form a strong fabric that retains its dimensional stability and is resistant to damage from construction stresses.
Nilex Nonwoven Geotextiles are available in varying strengths and thicknesses to ensure appropriate material selection for your project. Custom roll sizes are also available.
Nilex Woven Geotextiles are often used for separation and stabilization in the construction of roads. The woven geotextile’s separation action prevents the mixing of dissimilar soils allowing each soil layer in the road structure to function as intended. The high tensile strength and low elongation properties of woven geotextiles impart stability into the road section reducing rutting and extending roadway life.
Woven geotextiles are also used in filtering and reinforcement applications.
Nilex Woven Geotextiles are woven from durable, high-modulus polypropylene yarns into competent, robust, dimensionally stable geotextiles. Woven geotextiles are available in varying tensile strengths and hydraulic properties to suit particular project demands.
Custom roll sizes are available.
