Nilex Woven Geotextiles and High Strength 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 a woven geotextile imparts stability into the road section reducing rutting and extending roadway life.
Nilex Woven Geotextiles and High Strength 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.
Both Woven Geotextiles and High Strength Woven Geotextiles can also be used in filtering and reinforcement applications after due consideration.
Geotex® woven geotextiles have superior capacity for filtration and load distribution, reducing rutting and extending the life of paved and unpaved roadways. Made from individually woven, ultraviolet (UV)-resistant polypropylene yarns, and manufactured with high tensile strength and low elongations, Geotex woven geotextiles provide dimensional stability and resistance to the biological and chemical environments normally found in soils.
