is a needle-punched staple fibre nonwoven geotextile, some products additionally calendered,

used for separation, filtration, protection and drainage.
Secutex is multifunctional
Secutex geotextiles are used in many fields of civil engineering including hydraulic
engineering, landfill engineering, road construction and tunnel construction. As a separation
layer, Secutex prevents individual and distinct granular layers from contaminating one
another. Thus, structural fill and base courses maintain their integrity for a substantially longer
period of time than otherwise possible. When fine soil layers are present next to drainage layers
on highway or railway construct ion projects, Secutex functions as a filter preventing fine soil
particles from washing through and com promising the drainage ability of the coarser layers.
Displacement of small amounts of water in problem areas is facilitated by the in-plane Secutex
transmissivity. Secutex nonwoven geotextiles with a high mass per unit area can also protect
geomembranes or pipes against mechanical damage. If necessary, a woven geotextile can be
integrated into the matrix of Secutex to distribute dynamic loads and thus augment its
protective abilities.
Secutex is safe
Secutex is recognised for its long-term filter stability and separation performance. Its
elongation properties are extremely high such that a high resistance to impacts and
push-through loads is achieved. For protection applications, Secutex ensures the necessary
factors of safety when manufactured with sufficient thickness. The mechanical properties of
Secutex - elongation, abrasion resistance, plunger puncture resistance (CBR), and its overall
robustness - and our many years of experience with geosynthetics guarantee a high degree of
safety. Properly selected Secutex geotextiles can safely accommodate heavy dynamic loads
and physically aggressive soil conditions. Ask for details of the geotextile robustness
classifications of Secutex.
Secutex is economical



Secutex reduces the requirements for fill materials and there fore the amount of excavation
required to achieve a given profile. Significant savings are realised not only on construction
costs but also on maintenance costs. Secutex offers lower construction costs, lower follow-up
costs, and higher performance.
Secutex is simple
Secutex can be handled and installed on site with little difficulty. Rolls are simply deployed on
site; no special equipment is required.
When compared to conventional construction methods, Secutex makes the grade. Its high
elongation capacity and robustness make Secutex extremely durable. Secutex reduces
construction and maintenance costs and has numerous fields of applications.
