Mullen Burst ASTM D3786 and Puncture D4833 will be removed from Product Data Sheets on January 1, 2010. Neither test method is recognized by AASHTO M288. CBR puncture D6241 has replaced D4833, under AASHTO M288. Mullen Burst is not recognized by D35 committee on Geosynthetics. For more information, please see Geosynthetics magazine.
Woven Slit Film
FunctionsReinforcement / Stabilization: Slit film improves the mechanical properties of soil and structural fill by absorbing tensile forces and reducing deformation.
Separation: It also performs separation beneath roads, keeping dissimilar materials separated to maintain their functionality.
Product DescriptionThrace-LINQ woven slit film geotextiles are well-suited for the separation and stabilization of roads. Their durable, high-modulus polypropylene yarns are woven into a competent structure that meets or exceeds industry standards. Since our slit film is both economical and hardwearing, it is also used to reinforce other civil structures like slopes, walls and dikes, and can serve as an erosion-preventing silt fence.
AASHTO M 288 is the national guideline specification for the use of geotextiles in civil engineering applications. Thrace-LINQ woven slit film meets the guidelines as follows:
- GTF 200S: Class 3 Separation and Unsupported Temporary Silt Fence
- GTF 200: Class 3 Separation
- GTF 250, GTF 270: Class 2 and 3 Separation and Stabilization
- GTF 300: Class 2 and 3 Separation, Class 1 and 2 Stabilization
Features & Benefits
- Durable polypropylene yarns woven for dimensional stability
- High modulus, for immediate structural support
- Low elongation, to restrain construction damage like tearing or puncturing
- Fabric strength, suitable for encapsulation and fabrication in temporary or permanent structures
- Low cost, reducing total project expenses
