Geotextile is made of a planer, porous, polymeric textile material that may be non-woven Geotextile, knitted Geotextile or woven Geotextile and has applications to be used in contact with soil, rock, and other geotechnical material in different civil engineering applications. The main function is to provide good separation , filtrations, protection, drainage and reinforcement thereby increasing the life of structure. We have a fully automatic and modern plant of knitting Geotextile, woven Geotextile and non woven geotextiles.
Non woven Geotextile is made by needle punch, thermal or chemical bonding. Fibers are carded and needle punched & then bonded thermally to form nonwoven fabrics. The manufacturing process involves manufacturing of nonwoven fabric from polyester or PP fibres. We manufactures from 15 gsm to 900 gsm. The nonwoven geotextile fabric maintains a uniform settlement of the subgrade & hence improve the subgrade strength & produce long life of the system.
We can manufacture upto 6.5 Mtrs width.
Woven Geotextiles are made from weaving monofilament, multifilament yarns. We are manufacturing high tenacity multifilament PP and polyester geotextile fabric on fully automatic German Dornier looms.
We are manufacturing polypropylene woven geotextiles with tensile strength extending up to 300 kn/m.
We are manufacturing polyester woven geotextiles with tensile strength extending up to 900kn/m.
We can also manufacture up to 3.85 mtrs width.
Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric offer excellent water and air permeability and conform easily to the ground for quick installation. They offer the most popular range of landscape fabric and are available in a variety of constructions. These include needle punched or heat bonded Polypropylene Geotextile Fabrics, Spun Bonded Polyester Geotextile, coated and laminated Nonwoven Geotextile etc.
Geotextiles provide three main functions to the roads:
Woven Geotextile and non woven Geotextiles provide long-term separation of the aggregate base from the subgrade soil. By separating these two materials, the Geotextile maintains the original thickness of the roadway aggregate. This is the most important Geotextile function for roads, particularly where the road is being constructed on weak subgrade soils.
Filtration and Drainage
Geotextile allows the ground water to pass into the subsurface drain without eroding the soil and helping the ground from deterioration making the life of the roads very long.
Higher strength PP and polyester woven geotextiles provide strength to the roads thus making it increment in the effective bearing capacity of low strength sub-grade soils and increase the life of the roads.
In Railway tracks the use of high strength woven geotextiles increases the periods between track maintenance. They are placed between the existing formation and the ballast layer to prevent the sub-grade from pumping in to the ballast layer, thereby maintaining structural integrity.
High tensile Geotextile woven fabrics are used in runways for reinforcement. Non woven Geotextiles are used for drainage blankets and for filtration purpose.
Geotextiles prevent the erosion of soil on the slopes and hilly areas. Nonwoven Geotextile will give effective drainage for water flow and on other side it will prevent the soil particle from washing out.5
