Applications

Roads/Railways

Use of geotextiles in Roads & Railways is one of the most common applications of geotextiles. The pumping effect generated by traffic passing can cause a fast deterioration of the ballast and granular support of those to sleepers and asphalt or concrete.

High strength nonwoven or woven geotextiles can offer an excellent solution to avoid these failures.

Geotextiles are being installed between ballast and the underlying soil. A good puncture resistance and engineered characteristic opening size are crucial for an optimum use of the product in the structure.Typically is TerraMatt W and GeoMatt TB used in these applications.
