Geotextiles

Geotextiles are permeable technical textiles made of synthetic fibers used in civil engineering, environmental and landscape architecture works to separate, filter, improve drainage, reinforce and distribute loads more evenly on soils and surfaces. They are permanent and insensitive to acids found in a natural state in soil which gives them a lifespan exceeding that of the works they protect.

TEXEL C SERIES

The Texel C Series brings together versatile geotextile products which, through their mechanical and hydraulic properties, optimizes the soil separation and filtration functions. These geotextiles are available in stock in a wide range of grades and formats. They can be used in many situations such as the construction of streets, roads, parking lots, shoreline, embankment stabilisation, etc. The Texel C Series is recognised for its quality and reliability. Texel C Orange Series carries the same good technical products as the Texel C Series with a bright orange color to give a signal and prevent further excavation below the orange geotextile.

GÉO-9

The GEO-9 are reinforcing geocomposites made of 100% polypropylene resulting from he combination by needling of two géotextiles (one non-woven and one woven). These products combine properties of both technologies, optimizing reinforcement, separation filtration and drainage performance. Thanks to their versatility these products are an excellent solution for unusually soft infrastructure soils as well as for difficult worksite conditions. The GEO-9 meet MTQ requirements and are certified by the BNQ according to the BNQ 7009-210 standard for grade R1 and grade R2.

Concrete

DRAINAFORM

Drainaform is a synthetic lining used for concrete forms. This geotextile is made up of a single textile layer with two different surface finishes. One side acts as a filter to prevent the flushing of fine cement particles in the drying stage while the other side acts a drain to evacuate excess surface water. The quality of the concrete surface thus obtained ensures increased resistance and durability thanks to an intrinsic protection against aggressive elements.

TEX-CURE

Tex-Cure is a product designed to ensure better control of the curing of horizontal concrete surfaces such as the decks of bridges and overpasses. The use of this product to cover this type of work during the curing period provides a smoother and harder surface with a higher resistance to the attacks of water and de-icing salts. The works thus constructed will survive longer to the numerous freeze-thaw cycles which occur during the winter. TEX-CURE is compliant with standard CCDG-3501 from the Quebec Department of Transport.

GEO-REFLEC

Geo-Reflec was developed for use as an interlayer bond breaker. Thanks to its physical and hydraulic properties, this product can prevent crack reflection while also allowing water to drain off. Its manufacturing process is such that it maintains its thickness and transmissivity even under severe constraints. Furthermore, Geo-Reflec is available in black and white to ensure better temperature control for the surface receiving the concrete.

Resurfacing

PAVETEX

The Pavetex series of geotextiles have been optimized for use as paving fabrics. Paving fabrics are nonwoven, needlepunched polypropylene fabrics that improve pavement performance and extend the pavement lifecycle. Paving fabrics act as a waterproofing and stress relieving membrane within the pavement structure. You can trust Texel’s Pavetex series to meet AASHTO M-288 specification requirements and more.

Woven

SX SERIES

The SX Series includes several woven géotextiles with different manufacturing processes. These géotextiles are specially designed to perform the function of reinforcement, filtration, or a combination of reinforcement and filtration, Under structures with high mechanical loads. Due to their specific manufacturing process, woven geotextile have high mechanical strength, low elongation and filtration capacity to limit the development of rutting in reinforcement and filtration applications.

GEOCONDUCT

Geoconduct is a conductive geotextile used under geomembranes to ensure the electric discharge required for electrically-controlled leak-detection operations. Under particular conditions, electrically-controlled leak detection becomes impossible because of the insulation provided by the geomembrane layer, in which case, the addition of this type of conductive geotextile becomes necessary. Leak detection is used in several fields to check waterproofing during installation or permanently installed in waterproof works. Among the most common applications for this type of products are landfills, chemical product storage basins and roofs.
