At Corys Geosynthetics, we offer woven, non-woven, needle-punched or thermally bonded geotextiles manufactured from polypropylene and polyester. Our geotextiles are produced from high quality staple fibres composed of strong, durable, chemically-inert polymeric materials resistant to the effects of site-specific ground conditions, weather and aging. Depending on the application, they have other survivability requirements, such as creep resistance, temperature resistance and/or ultraviolet exposure.
Properties & applications
Our geotextiles range from 80 gsm to 2000 gsm in various structures and polymer compositions designed to meet a wide range of applications. Our woven geotextiles exhibit high tensile strength, high modulus and low elongation. Needle punched non-woven geotextiles typically have high permeability as a result of their high porosity, conformability and elongation characteristics. Compared to needle-punched non-woven geotextiles, thermally-spun, bonded, non-woven fabrics typically have high modulus and conformability.
polypropylene and polyester
Our geotextiles have numerous applications, but there are five major functions: separation, reinforcement, filtration, drainage, and protection. We generally apply our geotextiles to civil uses such as lagoons, landfills, roads or railways.
For certain applications, we install geotextiles as a protection layer for HDPE and other liners to avoid damage from sharp objects found in subgrade.
