Maccaferri MacGrid® EG is a high modulus polypropylene, produced by an punched and extruded process and characterized by a tensile resistance in both longitudinal and transverse directions.
MacGrid® EG are geogrids are used primarily within the granular layers of road construction, or in access tracks in forestry, mining and agriculture. They also provide a soil stabilisation function.
The granular backfill interlocks with the MacGrid® EG, which provides lateral restraint to the aggregate particles.
MacGrid® EG control deformation and rutting within these structures, and often enable the thickness of these granular layers to be reduced.
