Carthage FX®-MF & TF High-Performance Series of Woven Polypropylene Geotextiles

arrow bulletFUNCTIONS

Our High-Performance Series of Woven Polypropylene Geotextiles are most frequently specified to perform at least one of the following functions:

  • Reinforcement
  • Separation
  • Filtration
  • Confinement

arrow bulletSERIES DESCRIPTION

The Carthage Mills' FX®–MF and TF High-Performance Series of woven polypropylene geotextiles were developed to deliver the higher strengths and long-term performance that cannot be achieved by typical woven slit-film geotextiles.

The FX®–MF and TF High-Performance Series of woven polypropylene geotextiles are produced of 100% high-tenacity polypropylene yarns. Utilizing a variety of unique weave patterns, they are designed for separation, stabilization and reinforcement, while still providing excellent filtration and drainage in a wide range of applications from moderate to severe site conditions.

Whether the emphasis is on filtration, high tensile properties, and/or long-term performance, these versatile and durable geotextiles can provide quick and easy solutions to other costly alternatives.


arrow bulletFEATURES AND BENEFITS

Carthage Mills' FX® High-Performance Series of woven polypropylene geotextiles are designed to provide cost-saving solutions in a wide range of applications and varying site conditions, making them one of the most complete and versatile lines of geosynthetics in the industry.

  • SEPARATION and FILTRATION: Unique weave patterns prevent dissimilar materials from intermixing while providing free flowing drainage assuring long-term functionality of materials.
  • STABILIZATION and REINFORCEMENT: High tensile modulus at low strains and excellent soil inter-action delivers immediate support in moderate to severe conditions.
  • DURABILITY: Superior resistance to installation damage assures long-term performance.
  • HIGH SEAM STRENGTHS: Achieve the high seam strengths that are essential in all closure and confinement applications; and allows for seaming to run perpendicular to the centerline in highway construction.
  • COST SAVINGS: When low-cost and high performance is combined, savings in structural materials and labor costs can be as much as 35-40%.

arrow bulletAPPLICATIONS

The combination of strengths, durability and filtration/flow characteristics make the Carthage FX®–MF and TF Series High-Performance Series of woven geotextiles uniquely versatile in their ability to deliver in:

  • Base Course Reinforcement for highways, railways, roads, and parking lots
  • Reinforcement for Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) structures or walls
  • Embankments and Dikes on soft soils and foundations
  • Voids Bridging in landfills (liner support), highways and runways
  • Reinforcement in steepened slopes
  • Capping/Closures in landfills and other hazardous waste sites
  • Erosion Control; shoreline protection under large riprap
  • Containment
