Why are Geotextiles Spurring Demand for Textile Coatings?

Geotextile is a synthetic permeable textile material used to improve the soil characteristics. It has the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect and drain when used in association with soils.

Geotextiles are ideal materials for many infrastructure works such as roads, harbors, landfills, drainage structures, and other civil projects.They are highly suitable for offering protection from erosion of earth embankments by wave action, currents or repeated drawdown. Hence, their production is increasing on a massive scale, paving way for increased adoption of textile fibers.
