The material TenCate Polyfelt TS was applied as a separator in the rehabilitation of urban roads in the north of the country. The wide variety of widths on roll availabillty minimizes material waste in this type of works.
Geosin followed the application of TenCate Polyfelt P in a railway maintenance work, carried out at night in the center of the country. The replacement of the ballast and the placement of a non-woven geotextile separator made of high performance polypropylene are fundamental to guarantee the service level of the line.
The TenCate polypropylene geotextile was applied as protection to the fuel tanks of a new commercial area in the north of Portugal. Also in this type of applications, our material, certified in environmental and chemical terms, is a guarantee of durability.
Our non-woven polypropylene geotextile TenCate Polyfelt TS was applied to a mining environmental remediation project in the south of Portugal. The advantages of polypropylene over polyester in mechanical, hydraulic and chemical terms make this material the most suitable for this type of applications.
TenCate Polyfelt TS was applied as a geotechnical solution to filter and separate distinct soil layers in the execution of a new commercial surface in the North of Portugal. The use of this geotextile ensures high long-term performance under rigorous mechanical and hydraulic demands.
TenCate Polyfelt® TS/ S geotextiles are mechanically bonded continuous-filament nonwovens made from 100% UV-stabilised polypropylene.
The mechnical properties of TS/S guarantee extreme resistance to installation damage, excellent hydraulic properties and outstanding long-term performance.
TS/S is especially suited as a separator and filter in subgrade stabilisation and is therefore extensively used in road and railway construction, as well as in all types of drainage systems.

F filter fabrics are geocomposites, consisting of two layers of mechanically bonded continuous-filament nonwoven made from 100% polypropylene.
One filament layer is designed as a filter, the other as a protection layer preventing mechanical damage to the filter. The optimised opening size ensures excellent long-term filter performance. F is particularly suitable in cases where critical soils place high demands on the filter properties of the geotextile, or when high mechanical stresses are expected.
F is used in river-bank and bed protection, coastal protection, land reclamation and dike construction.
P geotextile protection layers are mechanically bonded continuous filament nonwovens made from UV stabilised polypropylene.
In addition to its high mechanical protection efficiency, P affords excellent chemical and biological resistance. P has good drainage characteristics and is easily installed.
P geotextiles offer long-term protection for geomembranes in landfills, tunnels and reservoirs.
TenCate Geolon® PE
TenCate Geolon® PE are woven geotextiles made from UV stabilised polyethylene.
TenCate Geolon® PE is specially designed for filtration purposes where long term high water flow performance is required. TenCate Geolon® PE can be prefabricated into tailor made panels.
Drainage, erosion protection of riverbanks, shore lines and sea bottoms, as well as soil stabilisation for breakwaters, groynes and dams.
TenCate Rock® PEC
TenCate Rock® PEC is a geocomposite, consisting of continuous filament nonwoven and high tenacity polyester yarns.
TenCate Rock® PEC is characterised by high tensile strength combined with good in plane permeability. It is mainly used for the reinforcement of cohesive soils, where its drainage function promotes an increase in shear strength. The nonwoven component protects the high tenacity yarns from damage, and its separation function means that TenCate Rock® PEC can be used between fine-grained and coarse-grained soils.
TenCate Rock® PEC is used for reinforced soil structures and for subgrade stabilisation.
