What is the difference between geotextiles and geogrids?
The geotextile is used to prevent seepage and the geogrid is used to reinforce
The geotextile is mainly used for seepage control, isolation, geogrid are generally used in reinforcement reinforcement, the two are essentially different, in the use of the process is sometimes used in the same project, for example, high-speed railway project is made of polypropylene production grid and polyvinyl chloride polymer and thermoplastic or die of two-dimensional grid or a certain height of the three-dimensional mesh screen, when used as a civil engineering, called geogrid
Engineering applications: highway, railway, bridge, road, pier, dam, slag field, such as soft soil foundation reinforcement, retaining wall and pavement crack resistance engineering and other fields. Glass fiber mesh used in exterior wall, interior wall paint, mainly to prevent cracking, different materials at the junction of mortar plastering material hollowing. Local node reinforcement will also be used. Geotextile has excellent filtration, drainage, isolation, reinforcement, seepage prevention, protection, light weight, high tensile strength, good permeability, high temperature resistance, anti freezing, anti-aging, corrosion resistance. Common non-wovenUsed in the water layer, polyethylene polypropylene fiber waterproof is also used.
