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.



Filtration: Woven monofilament geotextiles filter soil particles while allowing excellent water permittivity for structures requiring drainage.

Erosion Control: They can provide erosion control structures with stabilization and filtration.

Reinforcement / Stabilization: High modulus woven monofilaments can improve the mechanical properties of both the subgrade soil and the structural fill placed over the geotextile.

Separation: They also perform separation beneath roads, keeping dissimilar materials separated to maintain their functionality.

Product Description

Thrace-LINQ offers three woven monofilament geotextiles, each with unique high strength, permittivity and water flow rate properties. Their unusual combination of features makes monofilaments well-suited to meet the engineering and design needs of civil structures with unusual hydraulic considerations. Since they also incorporate a uniform pore structure, monofilaments perform filtration well and are ideal for erosion control and drainage facilities.

ASSHTO M 288 is the national guideline specification for the use of geotextiles in civil engineering applications. Thrace-LINQ woven monofilaments meet the guidelines as follows:

  • GTF 400EO: Class 3 Subsurface Drainage
  • GTF 400E: Class 2 Subsurface Drainage (15-50% in situ soil through 0.075mm sieve), Class 2 and 3 Separation, Class 2 Stabilization, and Permanent Erosion Control (15-50% in situ soil through 0.075mm sieve)
  • GTF 404: Class 1, 2 and 3 Separation and Stabilization

Features & Benefits

  • Durable polypropylene yarns woven for dimensional stability
  • High permittivity and water flow rates
  • High modulus, for immediate structural support
  • Low elongation, to restrain construction damage like tearing or puncturing
  • Low cost compared to alternatives, reducing total project expenses
  • Excellent resistance to UV degradation
