Supreme Nonwoven Industries | Geo-Textile | Erosion Control

Erosion is caused by the migration of fine soil of sea or river banks due to strong currents. This ultimately poses a great danger to installations located on the banks. This is one of the most common problems with granular soil.

After dressing the eroded banks, Supertex geo-textile - manufactured from a synthetic fibre resistant to alkaline and acidic attack - is laid and anchored. A boulder rip-rap is formed on the geo-textile layer as a protective layer.

Supertex geo-textile functions as a filter and permits water to pass through without allowing the migration of fine soil. Since Suptertex is resistant to deterioration caused by UV exposure and has good tensile and hydraulic properties, various geo-technical designers have come to prefer Supertex to encounter river and sea erosion in recent times.
