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.
TenCate Geosynthetics deliver solutions that enhance the performance and design life of transportation engineering structures for paving. From our complete product line for Roadway and Railway Construction System Solutions, we offer materials that function for sealing, stress relief, adhesive bonding, and soil reinforcement. They offer robust mechanical properties coupled with high water flow capabilities that extend pavement life by retarding reflective cracking, waterproofing and reinforcing asphalt pavements.
In infrastructure projects in which space has to be saved or land acquisition minimized, TenCate Geosynthetic soil reinforcement technology has been used in the design and construction of steep slopes or walls. The use of this technology increases the stability of such structures.
The world registers less than 3.5 million kms of pipelines in 120 countries. Pipelines conveying flammable or explosive material, such as natural gas or oil, pose special safety concerns. To avoid pipeline instability and damage caused by differential settlements, TenCate Geosynthetics EMEA offers you the optimum solution from its wide range of reinforcement geosynthetics: TenCate Geolon PET & PP, TenCate Miragrid GX & TenCate Rock PEC ranges.
