Woven geotextiles, such as GEOTEXAN LF, are comprised of polypropylene and are specifically designed for use as separation layers in various construction and civil engineering applications. These geotextiles play a crucial role in providing effective separation between different soil layers or materials to enhance the overall performance and longevity of infrastructure projects. 

GEOTEXAN LF geotextiles are woven from high-quality polypropylene fibres, which impart excellent strength and durability to the fabric. The weaving process creates a robust and resilient material that can withstand the challenges posed by the environment, including soil movement and load-bearing requirements.


  • separation layers used in various construction and civil engineering applications
  • prevent the mixing of adjacent soil layers


  • robust and resilient material
  • enhances the overall performance and longevity of infrastructure projects

One of the primary functions of these geotextiles is to prevent the mixing of adjacent soil layers with different characteristics. By acting as a barrier, they ensure that the structural integrity of roads, embankments, and other construction projects is maintained over time. This separation capability helps to minimize the risk of soil erosion, settlement, and deformation, contributing to the overall stability and performance of the construction. 

Furthermore, GEOTEXAN LF geotextiles facilitate proper filtration of water and other liquids. Their permeable nature allows water to pass through while preventing the migration of fine particles. This not only helps in maintaining the structural integrity of the project but also aids in preventing clogging and maintaining the desired hydraulic properties. 

In summary, GEOTEXAN LF woven geotextiles, composed of polypropylene, serve as effective separation layers in construction projects. Their robust construction, durability, and filtration capabilities contribute to the overall success and longevity of infrastructure developments by preventing soil mixing, erosion, and ensuring proper water drainage.
