    • MSE wall reinforcement
    Wicking Fabric H2Ri Specifications

Product Description

H2Ri is a revolutionary woven wicking geotextile with special hydrophilic and hygroscopic yarns that provide wicking action through the plane of the geosynthetic. H2Ri integrates the properties of wicking, high tensile modulus, excellent soil interaction, and high durability. H2Ri is a unique double layer polypropylene product that provides excellent separation with superior filtration and drainage. Uniform openings provide consistent filtration and flow characteristics. Applications include roadway subgrade stabilization, base course reinforcement, runway and railway construction, frost heave/frost boils, embankment stabilization on soft soils, reinforcement for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls and bridging of voids. It may also be used for geomembrane liner support, reinforcement over soft hazardous pond closures and other environmental applications. Wicking Fabric H2Ri has very unique water wicking capabilities to improve the performance of the installation. H2Ri is tested in accordance with ASTM C1559 (modified) and specifications are provided for wet front movement in inches over time for vertical and horizontal directions.
