TENAX TT geogrids are manufactured by extruding
and mono-directional drawing of high-density polyethylene (HDPE)
grids. This technology produces products having important technical
properties that permit their usage in structural applications.
TENAX TT geogrids, being chemically inert and having a high
tensile strength and modulus are specifically produced for the
reinforcement of soil.
Soil and aggregate interlock within the
geogrid openings, which, confine the soil and limit its relative
displacements and increase the soil's shear stress resistance.
Soil compaction produces an interlock between the soil and both
faces of the geogrid layer, thus it's necessary to reach
a higher level of tension in order to overcome such an interlock
and give rise to movement.
The composite soil/geogrid structure therefore, acts as if it
had an intrinsic tensile strength. The insertion of the geogrid
thus produces a type of cohesion within materials that would be
The soil/geogrid structure integrates
the fill soil high compressive strength with the geogrid's
tensile strength, thus creating a material having greater rigidity
and stability than the aggregate alone.
The geogrids capacity
to absorb stresses and redistribute them in the reinforced mass
further increases the structure's resistance to static and
TENAX TT geogrids therefore constitute an innovative and
advantageous solution from a technical and economic point of view
for all applications requiring improvement in the characteristics
of the granular, cohesive, unconsolidated, or aggregate materials.
