Enka-Tex nonwoven

Needle-punched and thermally bonded geotextiles for protection

OVERVIEW

Protect impermeable membranes for groundwork construction applications, landfill and reservoir construction, and protect coast from erosion below rock and concrete defences.

The hydraulic properties of Enka-Tex N nonwovens stimulate the build-up of a natural soil filter in the adjoining soil to ensure long-term filtration stability.
 Use them in site access roads, hard standings, road and railways, drainage blankets, landfills, reservoirs and coastal protection.

Functions
  • Separation.
  • Protection.
  • Filtration.
  • Stress relief.
  • Interlayer barrier.

Superior performance

  • Superior performance at lower weight.
  • Enables greater water flow normal to the plane than required.
  • A range aperture sizes to accommodate different soils.
  • Excellent durability, mechanical robustness, and hydraulic properties.
