MULTITEX is a double-layer geocomposite material, which consists of a geogrid made of a high-modulus polyester (MULTITEX PET) or polyvinyl alcohol (MULTITEX PVA) and coated with a special polymer dispersion. The geogrid is firmly bonded to a nonwoven polyester or polypropylene geotextile, enabling the overall composite material to provide reinforcement, separation, drainage, and filtration in a single roll.
The square or orthogonal cellular structure is stitched with strong knots. Various opening sizes are available, and tensile strengths ranging from 20 to 100 kN/m are standard. The 5.2 m wide rolls make installation more efficient by greatly reducing the need to cut and overlap panels.
Functions of MULTITEX:
- Base Reinforcement
MULTITEX geocomposites reinforce base course in roadways, providing shear resistance and improving the road system's elastic modulus.
- Reinforced Steep Slopes
The exceptional bearing capacity of MULTITEX enables the construction of steeper, safer slopes to optimize land use and reduce land disturbance in infrastructure.
- Separation of Soil Layers
While the geogrid component provides essential strength to constructions, the firmly bonded geotextile
on MULTITEX prevents differing soil and aggregate particles from migrating and mixing under loads. This enhances the long-term performance and integrity of a construction.
The nonwoven geotextile layer of MULTITEX secures soils and aggregates while enabling water to pass through the geocomposite. Ponding and water-related erosion within the geocomposite reinforced system is prevented.
