Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. Typically made from polypropylene or polyester. In many cases, geotextiles replace or reduce the need to use natural aggregate construction materials providing both economic and environmental benefits. H.Tis Enterprise FZE offers a range of geotextiles including nonwoven and composites. Our Nonwoven Geotextiles are made from polypropylene fibers that are needle-punched to form a dimensionally stable network and have a wide range of applications in civil environmental engineering and construction projects. Their uses include: 1 . Filtration of soils in drainage applications by retaining soil particles while allowing for the free flow of water. 2 . Separation and stabilization in road and railway construction. 3 . Prevention of soil movement in erosion control measures. 4 . Cushioning and protection in many containment projects. They are available in varying strengths and thicknesses to ensure appropriate material selection for your project.
