RSi geotextiles are high strength integrated woven geotextiles with high ultimate tensile strength. The RS580i and RS380i products integrate the properties of tensile modulus, separation, confinement and high water flow rate in one product. For base course or subgrade reinforcement and stabilization this means installing one product rather than two to provide the traditional soil reinforcement and separation functions with suitable drainage in this type of application.
RSi series have excellent durability and excellent soil and base course interaction and confinement and high tensile modulus. The unique double weave technology provides high biaxial tensile strength along with excellent characteristics of separation, filtration and confinement. These are the required properties for effective subgrade stabilization. RS580i and RS380i are supplied in a distinctive orange color for product identification
Applications of RSi series woven geotextile include base course and subgrade reinforcement and stabilization for roads, railways, runways and haul roads, embankment stabilization on soft soils, reinforcement for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) applications, support of geomembrane liners, reinforcement over sludge ponds, bridging voids and other environmental applications.
