Geomat – MacMat® are made of synthetic material filaments, tangled together to form a highly deformable layer 10-20 mm thick, featured by a very high porosity (greater than 90% on average).
They can be used on slopes, along the banks of canals and river courses, or to convey liquids (drainage) in association with geotextiles and/or geomembranes.
The main applications are:
- Superficial erosion protection caused by the impact of rain drops and rills
- Lining of river banks with low water velocities
Macmat® is a geomat obtained by a polymer made three-dimensional extruded matrix.
MacMat® L composites is a standard MacMat® geomat jointed by an heat-bonding process to a reinforced membrane.
Macmat® R is a reinforced geomat obtained by a polymer made three-dimensional matrix extruded onto a double twisted steel woven mesh.
Macmat® R Polymer is a reinforced geomat obtained by a polymer made three-dimensional matrix extruded onto a polymeric woven geogrid.
MacMat HS is used for the most demanding slope face stabilisation applications which require a combination of erosion protection and surface stabilisation. It consists of a three-dimensional polymer matrix extruded onto a high-tensile steel cable reinforced mesh.
