Soil Reinforcement and Stabilization Geogrid
Titan’s TE-BXPP and TE-BXC soil reinforcement and stabilization geogrid
solutions are used in base applications to reinforce and stabilize weak soils and ensure necessary soil stability. Both TE-BXPP and TE-BXC are biaxial geogrids offering unique product properties and characteristic, specifically TE-BXPP geogrid works to increase the bearing capacity and stabilization of low load bearing soils, whereas TE-BXC is most effective for stabilizing weak soils that are saturated and susceptible to piping.
When the granular material is compacted over these geogrids, it partially penetrates and projects through the apertures creating an interlocking action between the particles and the grid. This positive mechanical interlock enables the grid to resist horizontal shear from the fill and thereby mobilize the maximum bearing capacity of the soft subsoil.
TE-BXPP Biaxial Geogrid
TE-BXPP is a biaxial geogrid designed to increase the bearing capacity and stabilization of low load bearing soils.
It is manufactured out of virgin polypropylene (PP) using a unique punching and drawing process whereby the polypropylene sheet is stretched in two directions, machine (longitudinal) and cross-machine (transverse). This geogrid features uniform square/rectangular apertures with thick integral nodes, and thick/wide ribs. Its uniform geometric design allows for strong mechanical interlock with soil particles.
TE-BXPP geogrid is engineered to be mechanically and chemically stable in aggressive soil environments and is not attacked by salt, acid, or alkali aqueous solutions. It is not susceptible to hydrolysis, environmental stress cracking or micro-organisms attack and is formulated to resist construction damage, environmental exposure and UV degradation.
TE-BXC Biaxial Composite Geogrid
TE-BXC biaxial composite geogrid is an advanced combination product consisting of our
TE-BXPP biaxial geogrid heat-bonded to a long-fiber PET nonwoven geotextile. Designed as an all-in-one solution, TE-BXC composite geogrid offers soil reinforcement with added soil filtration, soil separation and sub-base drainage performance. This geogrid is extremely effective for stabilizing saturated soils that are susceptible to piping and preventing loss of imported granular material into the soft subgrade.
Like its parent product (TE-BXPP), TE-BXC geogrid is engineered to be mechanically and chemically stable in aggressive soil environments.
- Reduces amount of aggregate needed= construction cost savings.
- Reduces soil excavation and backfilling= construction cost savings.
- Minimizes differential settlement and prevents upward movement of the subgrade = higher structural performance.
- Improves overall structural life= maintenance cost savings.
