Protection & Filtration
geotextiles’ main purpose is to separate two different surfaces with a continuous surface. Its fiber content allows to spread condensed forces. Also, used as reinforcement material by resisting to tensile forces on the surface. By the filtration characteristic, geotextile filters the solid materials whereas the liquid and gases continues to flow. Under specific conditions geotextiles are used for drainage purposes by letting important amount of liquids to flow over.
To sum up geotextiles have hydraulic and mechanic
