Geocomposite fulfilling reinforcement, separation and filtration functions
Basetrac Duo-C is a composite material - geogrid plus nonwoven. The geogrid is being manufactured from polypropylene, polyester or polyvinylalcohol coated with a polymer. Basetrac Duo-C offers a standard biaxial tensile strength up to 65 kN/m. Higher tensile strength can be produced on request. The composite combines the functions of reinforcement, separation and filteration.
Basetrac Duo-C is the product of choice for base reinforcement on soils with low bearing capacity. The integral nonwoven separates the high-grade base material from the soft subgrade. Moreover, the large range of product types and the flexible material, which is HUESKER‘s hallmark, allow straightforward, cost-effective installation with no ”memory effect“. Basetrac Duo-C is a composite material – geogrid plus nonwoven – that combines reinforcing and separating functions. This reduces the base material depth requirement while offering reinforcing. The product offers performance quality and reliability in very soft soil conditions.
Flexible and dimensionally stable geogrid
No "memory effect"
High tensile strength in conjunction with low strain
Suitable for alkaline environments, e.g. in conjunction with cement stabilization or recycled rubble
High resistance to chemicals and microorganisms in soil, UV radiation and mechanical damage
High interaction flexibility
Good interlock due to optimum sizing of geogrid mesh to suit maximum soil particle size
