Geogrid products are geosynthetic materials used to reinforce soils, asphalt and similar materials. Geogrids are often used to reinforce the foundation or sub-foundation under roads or structures as well as retaining walls. Compared to soil, geogrids are strong in tension. This increases the bearing capacity of the soil by allowing the forces on the soil to transfer over a wider area and by meeting the incoming stresses. Geogrids are usually made of polymer materials such as polyester, polyvinyl alcohol, polyethylene or polypropylene. Geogrids can be woven or knitted from threads, heat welded from strips of material or laser welded.
They are highly flexible geogrids with a proven history in soil reinforcement. High-strength TechGrid geogrids are used in soil reinforcement applications, retaining structures, embankments and platform structures. TechGrid © is a high modulus geogrid material formed by knitting high strength polyester fibers and enclosing them in a protective polymer coating. It is coated with PVC (polyvinyl claride) or PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) according to the chemical parameters in the ground-soil structure to be used.
TechGrid © D is manufactured using high molecular weight and high strength polyester yarn. The yarns are precisely knit with a dimensionally stable pore opening providing equal tensile strength in both directions. The chemical and mechanical properties of TechGrid D © are improved by coating with PVC (polyvinyl claride) or PVA (polyvinyl alcohol), extending its life and enabling it to be used in difficult soil conditions.
