 MacTex® Non-Woven and Composites

MacTex® AR

MacTex® AR is used in paving applications and acts as a waterproofing and stress relieving membrane within the pavement structure.
It is made from a nonwoven needlepunched geotextile made from 100% polypropylene staple filaments. The polypropylene is stable within a pH range of 2 to 13. MacTex® AR resists ultraviolet deterioration, biological deterioration, rotting, and naturally encountered acids and bases.

MacTex® C2

MACTEX® C2 is a high strength bi-directionally oriented composite multi-function geotextile. It is made from a polyester woven knitted geotextile (produced by mechanically interlooping yarns by means of warp knitting technology) in combination with a non-woven filtering geotextile. It is used in separation and reinforcement applications. MacTex® C2 has also a limited in plane draining capacity.

MacTex® H

MacTex® H are high quality non-woven geotextiles manufactured from virgin high tenacity polypropylene fibres assembled by a needlepunched treatment and thermocalendered. The product is suitable for all general geotextile applications including filtration and separation.

MacTex® N

MacTex® N are high quality non-woven geotextiles manufactured from virgin high tenacity polypropylene fibres assembled by a needlepunched treatment only. The product is suitable for all general geotextile applications including filtration and separation.

MacTex® P

MacTex® P are high quality non-woven geotextiles manufactured from virgin high tenacity polypropylene fibres assembled by a needlepunched treatment and thermocalendered. The product is suitable for all general geotextile applications including filtration and separation. Additionally, its thickness and weight enable it to be used very successfully as a protection layer for geomembranes in landfills.

MacTex® Woven

MacTex® W1

MacTex® W1 geotextiles are planar woven structures manufactured weaving in the warp and the weft directions polypropylene tapes. They are used for general soil and ground stabilisation applications, where a dual, separation and reinforcement function may be required.

MacTex® W2

MacTex® W2 geotextiles are planar woven structures manufactured weaving in the warp and weft directions high tenacity polyester yarns. These high strength woven textiles can provide soil and ground stabilisation functions. Being made from polyester, the fibres do not creep as much as polypropylene, and can therefore be used for longer term applications.

MacTex® EC

The MacTex® EC geotextiles are woven fabrics made from high tenacity polypropylene tapes. They are used to contain topsoil within the face of reinforced soil geogrid wrapped face structures. The MacTex® EC is placed immediately behind the wrapped face of the geogrid, to prevent the backfill from spilling out between the apertures in the reinforcement geogrid.
The apertures of MacTex® EC are small and in order to have a regular opening of the meshes, the tapes are PVA coated.

MacTex® HF

MacTex® HF geotextiles are planar woven structures manufactured by weaving 100% virgin high density polyethylene monofilaments yarns in the warp and the weft directions. No recycled material from used residues is utilized in the production process. This fabric is specifically designed to be used as a filter in landfill drainage bottom-systems and in other special applications where the high chemical resistance and a selected mesh opening size to reduce the risk of clogging is required.
