Typar vs Other Geotextiles Performance

Typar offers benefits of high tensile strength of woven geotextile as well as elongation of needle punch geotextile making it the most versatile geotextile. Overview DuPont™ Typar® SF has a high tensile strength, a high elongation, and also a high initial modulus which is the ideal combination of properties for geosynthetic applications (for comparison see […]

PKHA Bridge Abutment Slope Protection

  A layer of heavy stone, broken rock (rip-rap), gabions or pre-cast blocks is often used to provide permanent erosion protection for Submerged bridge piers and foundations. Erosion protection structures or armor systems dissipate the hydraulic forces that cause erosion, and they preserve the subgrade soil or fill soil behind it. A typar is required between the […]

Erosion Control with Typar Geotextile

Typar geotextile provides a cost-effective replacement to conventional well graded filter between soil to be retained and concrete slab revetments which protect the filter geotextile. Road embankments are susceptible to soil erosion. For Suna road project, UEP used DuPont Typar geotextile to filter and prevent soil movement along the surface of the slope. Traditionally multi-phased […]
