Properties of Geotextile Fabrics?
Geotextiles can be woven, knitted or non-woven. Different fabric composition and construction are suitable for different applications. Non-woven geotextiles are an arrangement of fibres either oriented or randomly patterned in a sheet, resembling felt. These geotextiles provide planar water flow in addition to stabilization of soil.
Typical applications for geotextile fabrics include:
- Access roads
- Aggregate drains
- Asphalt pavement overlays
- Erosion control
Geotextile fabrics are non-woven fabrics which contain permeable membranes which allow water to pass through whilst still holding the particles in place. The woven style of geotextile fabrics are strong & do not stretch even when force is applied. They are made by weaving synthetic fabrics together.
Usually constructed of polypropylene or polyester, other materials that are used are nylon, polyvinylidene chloride, polyethylene & fibreglass. There are three different types of woven geotextiles. They are slit tape, monofilament & multifilament. The slit tape is produced by slitting sheets of solid or extruded film & then weaving them together. A monofilament fabric is woven from string-like fabric & the mutifilament fabric is produced by fine filaments that are adhered to each other by intermingling or twisting the strands.
The makeup of the fabric is uniform throughout the roll, so no weak spots will be present in the layer. Geotextile fabrics also provide a very viable, flexible, permeable protection and cushioning layer on areas such as reservoirs and landfills. A preliminary layer can be installed to prevent soil movement and stones from piercing delicate membranes above.
A geotextile fabric will also act as an extremely effective as subterranean soil stabilisation membranes. Either covering buried pipes or lining drains, they will ensure the passage of water without risk of land slippage, greatly improving the quality of the area.
These properties ensure that geotextile fabrics are absolutely ideal to for use in conjunction with:
- Stabilisation & strengthening
- Prevention of unevenness on driveways
- Prevention of the mixing of construction layers
- Providing a highly effective filtration layer for all drainage applications
