Non-Woven Geotextiles

Needle Punched Nonwoven Geotextiles

Geotex® Nonwoven Needle Punched Geotextiles get their name from a unique manufacturing process. After being cut and opened, filaments of polypropylene are laid into a web. They then pass through thousands of needles that penetrate and orient the fibers, locking them with one another. With superior filtration and hydraulic conductivity characteristics. Geotex® Nonwoven Needle Punched Geotextiles are among the most versatile types of geotextiles. They are available in many weights, with heavier fabrics possessing superior strength. High elongation characteristics ensure survivability in demanding installations.

Skaps Industries nonwoven geotextiles are needle-punched to provide the excellent strength and hydraulic characteristics necessary in ground stabilization, drainage, and erosion control applications. The high elongation feature of the project promotes a high survivability characteristic.

The ability of Light Weight Geotex® Nonwoven Needle Punched Geotextiles to restrict soil particles but allow water to easily pass through makes them perfect for filtration and/or separation applications.

Wrapping a subsurface drainage system with a Geotex® nonwoven geotextile prevents soil intrusion and subsequent clogging.

  • Subsurface Drainage
  • Roadway Separation
  • Hard Armor Underlayment

Robust Geotex® nonwovens also stabilize subgrades and prevent fouling of ballast beneath railway track.

  • Railroad Stabilization
  • Geomembrane Protection
  • Gas Venting

Spunbonded Nonwoven Geotextiles

DuPont SF geotextiles are nonwoven, spunbonded, continuous filament polypropylene that have excellent fiber distribution. This means you get extremely uniform weight and physical properties which translate into consistent quality.

DuPont SF spunbonded geotextiles have a wide array of uses including:

  • Septic Systems & Drain fields
  • Subsurface Drainage
  • Roadway Separation

Asphalt Overlay Geotextiles

Installed between layers of old and new asphalt pavement, Petromat® Asphalt Overlay Geotextiles can add years to the life of the new pavement surface. Petromat® is made of polypropylene staple fibers needle punched together and calendared on one side to create a fabric with an affinity for petroleum products. Petromat® is deployed over a tack coat of asphalt cement just prior to paving. Heat from the new asphalt pavement draws the tack coat deep into the Petromat® geotextile creating a membrane like composite. Moisture is restricted from entering the pavement base materials, adding years of life to a typical asphalt pavement.

Petromat asphalt overlay geotextiles increase the pavement life of new asphalt overlays by preventing moisture from seeping into the subgrade.

  • Reduce Maintenance Cost
  • Increased Pavement Life
  • Permanent Moisture Barrier
