Product Description

Heat-bonded nonwoven geotextiles (such as Typar®) are a variation of the nonwoven geotextile type. Typar® geotextiles use continuous polypropylene fibres that are heated together to form a continuous mat. Typar® geotextiles have good water flow performance and excellent retention of soil fines. While Typar® has been used to provide separation in paved and unpaved roads, it is predominately used in drainage applications such as trench drains, as a wrapping for perforated pipe, landscaping fabric, and combined with three dimensional structures to create prefabricated drainage products. Typar® is used when very fine soil particles need to be retained. Typar® is best known as a landscape fabric and is used extensively as a root barrier beneath paving stones or under decorative stones, bark or mulch.
