PET Woven / Composite Geotextiles
Such products are manufactured on a textile equipment able to weave the PET yarns into a finished fabric. It can be the form of a typical woven textile (MacTEX W2) or of a composite as combination of a filtering-separation nonwoven geotextile with a knitted one (Directional Oriented Structure geotextile). These materials are able to combine the reinforcement and the separation/filtration functions in one composite mostly used in soil stabilization or reinforcement applications. In most cases, these products are used on soft soil as the geogrid is most suitable for soils unprotected from the damaging effects of granular material.
