Specifically, TexoFib specializes in manufacturing and supplying laminated geosynthetic materials, geodrain, geotextiles laminated with geogrid, geotextiles laminated with a waterproof membrane (HDPE, PVC, etc.), geosynthetic clay liners (GCL), geogrids and fiberglass geogrids.
It has been manufacturing nonwoven geotextiles from synthetic fibers for nearly 50 years and is developing new solutions and improved products for separation, filtration, protection, drainage, and reinforcement.
Polypropylene (PP) (a polymer mostly used for the production of geotextiles) has a good resistance against many liquids (including seawater [7]) and biological degradation.
The resistance moment and the numbers of geotextiles required are examined.
The company has established itself as a frontrunner in providing non-woven geotextiles for countless projects across the region, especially in Saudi Arabia.
