L & M - Model LM 2197 - NON-NTPEP Monofilament Geotextile Fabrics
LM 2197 is manufactured using high tenacity monofilament polypropylene yarns that are woven to form a dimensionally stable network, which allows the yarns to maintain their relative position. LM 2197 resists ultraviolet deterioration, rotting and biological degradation and is inert to commonly encountered soil chemicals.
Unless otherwise noted, this certification is based on testing conducted by our Quality Assurance & Quality Control testing laboratories at the time of manufacturing. L & M Supply Co., Inc. issued this letter of certification to indicate our commitment to providing our customers with a quality product which will meet or exceed the minimum average roll values in accordance with the applicable American Society for Testing and Materials ( ASTM ) test method.
This group adds a third dimension to the geotextile toolbox. In the manufacturing process, individual polypropylene filaments are woven together to form a fabric that resembles nylon screen cloth. Woven monofilaments are available with varying opening sizes to match up appropriately with site soil, and the result is a geotextile fabric that combines excellent flow ability with durability and strength.
Uses for woven monofilaments are many and varied. They often are implemented in specialized applications where permeability is important, such as in drainage swale sides and bottoms. More recently, these geotextiles have been used in the construction of filter bags used to protect storm water inlet structures from construction site sediment.
L & M Supply offers a wide variety of woven monofilament geotextiles uniquely designed to meet today’s requirements for filtration, separation and erosion protection. Manufactured using high strength UV stabilized yarn and designed to meet specific characteristics required for today’s engineering challenges. Monofilament fabrics provide exceptional consistency in AOS and water flow properties.
