Enka®-Tex woven

Enka-Tex woven geotextiles offer the perfect cost-effective solution for separation, stabilisation, reinforcement and filtration. Enka-Tex woven geotextiles are manufactured from polypropylene or polypropylene/polyethylene tapes.

This product range is used in areas such as access roads and hard standings, roadways, car parks and coastal defence projects. One of its primary uses is in separation applications where there is a requirement to prevent intermixing of soft in-situ soils with good clean granular fill. A range of aperture sizes is available for Enka-Tex SG and PP woven geotextiles. When a high permeability is required combined with a small aperture size the Enka-Tex HF range can easily answer this demand. The HF fabric uniquely combines a polyethelene monofilament with a tape which gives the woven its extreme high permeability.
