General Information

ProFab® geotextiles are polymer based geotextiles that are manufactured specifically for applications of soil reinforcement. Generally the engineering application for the product will determine the most suitable type of geotextile that should be selected for use by the designer or contractor.

ProFab® woven geotextiles are used where a moderate strength is required to provide a reinforcement effect in a pavement application.

Product Information

ProFab® woven geotextiles are manufactured from the extrusion of a polymer (polypropylene or polyester) into either a flat tape or filament product which may be then further processed by slitting or bundling and then weaving to form a fabric.

ProFab®  woven geotextiles are ideally suited for applications of reinforcement or separation as the strength of the tape or filament within the fabric may be increased to suit a specific application. ProFab®  woven geotextiles additionally have the ability to develop high strengths at relatively low strains which is a very important requirement in applications of reinforcement. Fabric strength is manufactured in two directions and may be varied to suit a particular reinforcement application. In applications of reinforcement and where a load may need to be sustained by the geotextile for significant periods of time the choice of polymer used in the construction of the fabric will determine the choice of woven product. The influence of creep effects on varying polymer types is well understood and will have a marked influence on the load carrying capability of the geotextile selected.

Application 
ProFab woven geotextiles are ideally suited for applications of separation of dissimilar materials with a secondary benefit of reinforcement ProFab woven geotextiles are ideally suitable for the construction of paved and unpaved roads.

Global Synthetics offer a range of woven geotextiles for applications of separation and reinforcement. The ProFab® PP geotextile range (polypropylene) of products is generally used where the primary function is one of separation with a secondary benefit of reinforcement. Typically the strength range of these products available between 30 kN/m to 80 kN/m.

Roll Sizes available:

  • PP 30  – 5.85m x 160m
  • PP80   – 5.85m x 100m
