Main function of biaxial geogrid-geotextile Geocomposite:
Biaxial Geogrid-Geotextiles Geocomposite are formed by the bonding of two or more geosynthetics to achieve specific physical properties such as added protection, drainage, or filtration.
Transnet geocomposite is produced by flame laminating a non-woven geotextile on one or both sides of an HDPE biaxial geonet. The biaxial design of the geonet
provides for high flow characteristics in both machine and cross direction. It also acts as a flow channel
for fluids while the geotextile filters and separates to keep soil particles and waste out. Therefore the
critical element for geocomposites is Transmissivity or flow rate.
Primary function depends upon final product
Designed for specialty, critical and or permanent applications
Numerous and growing
Cover systems they inhibit the accumulation of porewater pressure above the barrier layer by
providing a high capacity flow path for the
drainage of excess liquids Component of gas venting system below the barrier layer to
prevent gas build up
Replacement to granular leachate collection system
Underneath the primary liner as the leak detection layer
Wide range of product combinations- allows for performance driven product selection
Drainage capabilities are achieved with drainage geocomposites at costs far less than sand
and gravel aggregate systems.
With the filter, drainage and protection layer being a single unit can be installed rapidly at costs
lower than conventional aggregate layers
Chemical resistance provides long life in harsh environments
Cost effective replacement to granular drainage systems- cost savings on material, transportation, and installation
Saves time and natural resources- preserves aggregates resources for structural applications where alternative materials can not be used
