are permeable fabrics designed to improve or manage the soil for either making
it productive or conserving it. The origin of Geotextiles can be traced back to
ancient Egypt where natural fiber was added to soil to make it stronger.
Geotextiles came into mainstream agriculture and construction industry from
1950 onwards where both natural and synthetic polymers were put to use.
have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce,
protect or drain and a layer
of Geotextile sheet on the topsoil helps hold together the soil and prevent
erosion, also serving as a base for new plants to grow when the soil becomes
loose with the repeated beating of changing weather. This feature of geofabrics
is called ‘soil-stabilization’.
have been developed into different products such as Geogrid composite, geonet composite, Geomembrane
composite, all possessing a wide range of applications in civil engineering
such as roads, airfields, railroads, embankments, retaining structures,
reservoirs, canals, dams, bank protection, and coastal engineering. Ocean Global serves both Woven
and Nonwoven variety of Geo-Fabrics which are designed by specification and
function while keeping the costs in mind.
geotextiles are made of staple fibers or ceaseless filaments which are
reinforced by precisely snaring the fiber with thorned needles. The strands are
fortified together by employing thermal, mechanical, or chemical techniques.
Thermally reinforced geotextiles contain a wide assortment of opening sizes
while artificially fortified non-woven geotextiles are relatively thick.
are cheaper and faster to produce and have the texture of felt. While Woven
textile is used for stabilization and support, non-woven textile helps prevent
soil erosion and enables healthy vegetation. Non-woven Geotextile comes in two
varieties - Polyester and Polypropylene (PP)
textiles, as the name suggests, are produced by weaving synthetic polymers or natural
fibers and offer great tensile strength and load capacity. Woven Geotextile is
used for building roadways as they provide a stable base for construction.
Since woven fabrics are thick and tense, they are relatively impermeable and
are not suitable for filtrati
