Typar Geotextiles Bro

  2. 2. TYPAR® – THE IDEAL GEOTEXTILETypar is a long lasting, durable • Lower construction cost fromnonwoven geotextile fabric for paved reduced aggregate base thicknessand unpaved roads and surfaces, • Reduction in construction timedrainage, waste handling systems, from reliable product quality anderosion control and landfills. ease of installationManufactured from high quality • Reduction in ongoingpolypropylene, Typar is a continuous maintenance costs throughfilament, heat bonded fabric with Typar’s proven performance,superior uniformity that separates, toughness and durability overreinforces and filters soil particles timewhile letting water pass freelythrough. Typar is available in a variety of widths and lengths and weights 2No matter what your needs, Typar ranging from 1.5 oz/yd to 2geotextiles offer an easy to install, 8 oz/yd . The requirements ofeconomical and proven alternative to AASHTO M288 are met by themore expensive and less effective following styles:construction materials and methods.Typar is a high quality geotextile that Class 3 – Typar 3401offers a number of benefits including: Class 2 – Typar 3501 Class 1 – Typar 3801 UNPAVED ROADS AND INDUSTRIAL YARDSUnpaved roads and yards built prone to cause severe damage. • Prevents intermixing of aggregatewithout an asphalt or concrete Greater thicknesses of aggregate base with underlying soilssurface course derive all structural are needed to support the loads. • Reduces the thickness of aggregatesupport from the aggregate base and Typar is vital to prevent intermixing requiredare generally used by heavy trucks of the aggregate into the subgrade • Eliminates the need for frequentand equipment that are soil which results in ruts and pot re-application of aggregate holes. Typar Geotextiles Without Typar, soil contaminates and weakens aggregate With Typar, aggregate won’t sink into base soil base resulting in failure of the road. but stays intact to support loads. 2
  3. 3. PAVED ROADS AND PARkING LOTSTypar provides a rugged separationand stabilization layer between theroad structure and the subgrade soils.The use of Typar in this applicationgoes back over 35 years, and isproven to be an exceptionally Typar Geotextiledurable geotextile. Pavement • Prevents mixing of the valuable road base aggregate with the ate underlying subgrade soils reg agg • Enhances drainage of the subgrade soils while preventing subg rade pumping of fine soil particles into soil the base aggregate sep arat ion • Reduces the required amount stab iliza of road base aggregate by tion sep arat preventing intermixing ion perm • Assures long term prevention ittiv ity of road base deterioration Typar stabilizes and preserves paved roads by providing a separation layer between the aggregate base and subgrade. SUBSURFACE DRAINSSubsurface drains require a properly layer around subsurface drains, • Prevents migration of subgrade soildesigned protective layer that allowing water to pass freely into particles into the drainprevents the movement of soil into and through to the drain. Typar • Enhances the naturala drain that would cause clogging Geotextiles also function similarly long-term development ofof the drainage system. Typar behind retaining walls and next a graded particle filtergeotextiles provide a uniform filter to pools. • Reduces construction time and cost • Eliminates the cost and difficulty of constructing an alternative graded aggregate filter • Easy to handle and install • Typar is available in a range of opening sizes to deal with most any soil Interceptor drain systems.3

EROSION CONTROLErosion control structures dissipate • Prevents undermining of the armor • Eliminates the difficulty andthe mechanical and hydraulic forces layer by soil movement uncertainty associated withthat cause erosion of the soil behind • Enhances drainage of the slope soils graded aggregate systemsthem. Typar geotextiles provide a without associated pumping or • Simplifies construction and reducesdependable filter and protection layer piping of fine soil particles construction time and costfor stream banks, shorelines, slopes,submerged foundations, retaining Typar Geotextilewalls, bulkheads and revetments. Rip-rapTypar is installed with a layer of Bedding layerbedding stone under armor stone(rip rap), gabions or pre-cast blocksystems.Bedding stones (Rip-rap) are neededto provide intimate contact (preventpiping), UV protection, protectionfrom armor stones and vandalism. Anchor trenches Stream bank erosion control. LANDFILLSTypar geotextiles serve a number geonet, and in landfill cover systems resistance properties when comparedof important functions in all types of as well as for temporary daily covers. to other geotextiles of the samelandfill and waste management Because Typar resists a wide range weight making it the economicalapplications. It is used as a protective of chemicals, it is frequently used in choice.layer to prevent geomembrane liner hazardous waste landfills which mustdamage, as a permeable separation meet stringent EPA regulations and • Provides a very effective andlayer to preserve drainage integrity FHWA drainage criteria. Typar has durable daily cover, easy to useand prevent clay intrusion into a particularly high strength and tear and store • Prevents damage to or abrading of the geomembrane during its deployment and the placement of overlying materials • High modulus protects drainage layers from soil intrusion • Small opening size prevents clay from passing into leachate collection and leak detection layers • Resists chemical attack • Assures long term tear resistance Typical hazardous waste landfill lining and cover system to meet EPA regulations. 4
  5. 5. RECREATIONAL FACILITIES From football fields, baseball parks and race tracks to golf courses, Typar geotextiles are needed to keep layers of the structure separate and prevent contamination of customized surfaces by underlying soils. Blanket and trench drain systems for recreational facilities often use Typar for economical reasons and for ease of installation permitting fast, simple construction. • Preserves the integrity of specialized surface materials • Enhances the natural long-term development of a graded particle filter • Eliminates the need for sacrificial layers and allowances in the structure • Simplifies construction and reduces construction time and cost WASTE HANDLING SYSTEMSOnsite waste water disposal orseptic systems serve approximatelyone-third of the households in theUnited States. Septic systems aredesigned to disperse large volumes ofliquid by percolation into the groundthrough large subsurface drainagesystems. Typar extends the systemlife significantly.• Prevents soil particles from clogging large drainage systems• Enhances the passing of liquid through the system• Unaffected by most chemicals• Simplifies construction of large drainage fields• Proven alternative to graded aggregate or sand filters which are more expensive and difficult to install Typar is a permeable barrier that separates soil from drainage material.5
  6. 6. LANDSCAPING Typar is ideally suited for landscaping When roots are a problem applications. Its permeability allows particularly in sidewalks, curbs and for fast drainage and the passage of drainage systems, Typar Biobarrier® air and fertilizers while its tight fiber root control system should be used structure minimizes penetration by which involves the controlled release weeds and roots and prevents of a herbicide from the Biobarrier® unwanted growth beneath the fabric system. fabric. Its small opening size prevents piping or erosion of subgrade soils. • Allows moisture, fertilizers and air Typar is generally placed over to reach soil for healthy plants natural soil and covered with a layer • Reduces weed germination Compared to the plastic film on the right, Typar’s porous structure allows of decorative stone, bark or mulch. • Prohibits weed growth water, nutrients and air to pass through Weed growth is inhibited in beneath fabric to plant roots landscaped beds and under decks. • Prevents uneven settling of patios Gravel and stone paths retain their • Durable, tear resistant, structure longer by separating cover won’t rot or mildew materials from subgrade soils. • Lightweight and easy to install • Assures long term minimal maintenance of the landscape GEOCELLSA Typar® Geocells unit, made of offer an excellent environment for • Cost efficient and project effectivetime-proven Typar® fabric, is a unique re-vegetation.

During the manufacturing process a surface tension is formed on theproduct which, prior to contact with soil, will cause water to run off the fabric giving the appearance of water resistance. This is atemporary phenomenon which disappears when the fabric comes into contact with soil, and normal hydraulic properties will take effect.The information contained herein is offered free of charge and is, to the best of our knowledge, accurate.
