Stabilenka is woven with polyester in the longitudinal direction (warp) and with polyamide or polyester in the transverse direction (weft). The use of high-modulus polyester multifilament yarn and a special innovative weaving process (straight warp) allows Stabilenka to mobilise high tensile forces at low strains.
Stabilenka is manufactured in ten standard versions with maximum tensile strengths up to 1000 kN/m in the main loading direction. Special models with higher strengths can be fabricated on request.
Stabilenka was one of the world's first geosynthetic reinforcement products. Since it was first used in 1974, Stabilenka has proved itself on thousands of projects.
- High tensile strength in conjunction with low strain
- Low creep
- High resistance to microorganisms as well as chemical and physical action
- Integral separating function
Why choose Stabilenka?
Thanks to its high-strength, low-creep properties, Stabilenka can permanently accommodate high tensile forces even at low elongations. When subjected to a permanent load equal to 50% of the short-term strength, the low-creep yarn ensures that the creep strain does not exceed 1% after two years.
Stabilenka thus lends itself to a wide variety of applications, such as earthwork reinforcement or sludge lagoon capping.
