Geogrids and geocomposites High Modulus
TENAX LBO HM geogrids and TENAX GT HM geocomposites are the evolution of the traditional Polypropylene extruded bi-axial geogrids with integral junctions.


The uniqueness is in the high value elastic modulus and the resulting mechanical performances at low strains (0.5% and 2.0%).

  • Reduced settlements of the structure

  • Elastic modulus > 10%
    than traditional bi-axial geogrids

  • Maximum performance can be developed immediately

  • No creep within serviceability strain

  • Better performances at a lower cost

In stabilization works, the basic requirement to define the suitability of a reinforcement is the modulus at low strains (2% or less).


Using the Peak Tensile Strength as the main design parameter has no meaning considering the real operating conditions: in fact strains that develop at peak are not compatible with the stability of any structure.



If we have to design an embankment 30m width using the tensile strength as a parameter of design, it would mean having a deformation in the reinforcement of at least 10% .


This deformation corresponds to an elongation in the geogrid of 3m (10% of 30m) and so the embankment base length would increase from 30 to 33m.
Thus, in the middle of the embankment the settlement could be:
[(33/2)²-15² ]1/2 = 6.87m...!
