Our lines of geosynthetic products are commonly used in civil engineering, environmental protection and landscape architecture projects to improve or add specific properties to soils and natural materials in place.
The Functions of Geosynthetics
The main functions of geosynthetic products are:
- Separation: to separate two materials of different grades to prevent their cross-contamination which can accelerate degradation of the works;
- Filtration: to allow the passage of a fluid from soil or other media while preventing the uncontrolled passage of particles from this media;
- Waterproofing: to create a waterproof or quasi waterproof barrier in order to prevent liquids contained in the works from reaching the soil or adjoining works;
- Drainage: to collect, channel and transport liquids, thus distancing them to protect the works from the presence of liquids which constitutes one of the main causes of their degradation;
- Reinforcement: to improve a soil's load-bearing capacity by increasing resistance to traction and buckling capacity before rupture of the soil mass thus allowing work to proceed;
- Protection: to serve as a layer reducing local constraints that can prevent or reduce potential damage to another layer of natural, geosynthetic or geotechnical materials.
