Typar Geosynthetics launches new line of construction fabrics

April 11, 2013

Typar Geosynthetics has introduced the latest addition to its 40 years of Typar geotextile innovation—Typar C-Class Construction Fabrics. Engineered for use in AASHTO M-288 applications and to provide strength, uniformity, and durability characteristics, Typar C-Class is ideal for stabilization, separation, drainage, and erosion control projects.

"Typar is one of the original manufacturers of geotextiles," says Keith Misukanis, sales director, Americas. "We're in our fifth decade of production at our plant in Tennessee, so we have a long history of product innovation, manufacturing quality control, and project experience to draw from. The C-Class series and AASHTO certification continue that history of expertise and market leadership."

The long-term performance and strength and durability of Typar nonwoven geotextiles are rooted in Typar's unique construction. The continuous filament, heat-bonded manufacturing process produces a nonwoven that possesses uniform strength in the material's longitudinal and transverse directions. The pre-stressed fibers mean Typar reaches its performance strength sooner than thicker or equal weight needlepunched products.

The company says with Typar's thinner profile but higher strength and greater tear resistance properties, users get more per roll—up to 45% more product per shipment—and better nonwoven performance.
