Nonwoven Environmental Grade

Nonwoven needle-punched geotextiles Environmental Grade are used in critical subsurface drainage applications or where a specific mass is required to meet protection criteria for geomembrane.

    Features

    • A continuous felt mat of polypropylene fibres
    • Consistent filtration properties
    • Consistent water flow properties
    • Provide low-cost protection for geomembranes

    Applications

    • Prevent the loss of soil fines when wrapped around drains
    • High permittivity - Allows high water flow rates
    • Higher Puncture and Tear values than commodity grade materials
    • Used as a protective cushion for geomembranes

Product Description

Needle-punched nonwoven geotextiles are made from polypropylene fibres that are tangled together in a needle-punching process. The fibres may be made in continuous or short lengths and achieve their strength by interlocking. Needle-punched nonwoven geotextiles have excellent water flow rates and are used for filtration of soil fines. Needle-punched nonwoven geotextiles have been used in drainage applications, including trench drains (aka frenchdrains). It can also be used for wrapping a perforated pipe, erosion protection, landfill leachate collection systems and combined with three-dimensional structures to create gas collection and venting systems. They are also commonly used with geomembranes to provide a protective cushion. Needle-punched nonwoven primary functions: filtration; separation; protection; drainage.
