The geocomposite consists of interconnected parallel flat strips and a layer of geotextile performing the separation/filtering function.
The starting material for the production of geosynthetics is polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene, polyvinyl, polyamide, etc.
Geocomposites are mixtures of the above materials, consisting of geotextiles, geogrids, geomembranes and/or geocombs, and may be combined with other synthetic materials or soils.
Geocomposite is widely used in various construction sectors:
Paved and uncovered roads
Load transfer platforms
For the protection of geomembranes in landfills
In general and environmental construction
The main use functions of geocomposites are:
planar current, i.e. draining along its surface
blocking the movement of liquids and gases
When installed, geosynthetics usually perform several of the above functions simultaneously.
