Landfill continues to provide one of the main forms of disposal for domestic and industrial waste.
Such applications require high quality densely needle-punched nonwoven geotextiles to protect the more sensitive geomembrane liners.
Through the provision of a very high puncture resistance, SNW and VNW geotextiles offer protection against both initial installation damage and longer term stress cracking. In this sector, SNW grades in particular demonstrate an extremely high performance at very competitive weights.
SNW and VNW needle punched geotextiles are also widely used in a protection function to prevent damage to the impermeable membranes used in the construction of water reservoirs, lakes and new tunnel linings.
