These are used in reinforcement of embankments or in constructional work. The fabrics in geo textiles
are permeable fabrics and are used with soils, the fabrics having the ability to separate, filter, protect or drain.
The application areas include civil engineering, earth and road construction, dam engineering, soil sealing and in drainage systems.
The fabric used in it must have good strength, durability, low moisture absorption and thickness. Mostly nonwoven and woven fabrics are used in it.
Synthetic fabrics made of polypropylene and polyethylene are used to prevent cracking of the concrete, plastic and other building materials.
Polypropylene and polyethylene woven fabrics are used in geo textiles and dry/liquid filtration due to their compatibility.
