Hipertex® Geotextiles protect the drain system by preventing mingling of fines.
With permeable Hipertex® Geotextiles wrapped around the pipes, an effective and long lasting drainage system is ensured,
without any risk of clogging.
Hipertex® geotextile is the perfect solution for present civil engineering works and tomorrow building challenges.
Designed to comply with the modern design requirements, Hipertex® is a step forward in comparison to other traditional building products.
Hipertex® is made with very high tenacity fibers of polypropylene and with the best production lines available. Its mechanical and hydraulic properties are at the top on the geotextiles market.
It is generally recognised that the use of Hipertex® in building works allow to save raw material costs and improve the work performances if compared to traditional building technical solutions.
The characteristic opening size of Hipertex® is designed to retain particles while allowing free movement of water, making it possible to separate two layers during intense hydraulic activity. Hipertex® preventing the ingress of fines into drainage media and provide the same flow rates on the job site, eliminating future clogging and costly project damage.
Characteristics required for use in drainage systems.
EN ISO standards define the filtration as the process that is used to retain the particles of the ground subject to hydrodynamic forces and allow the passage of fluids within the geotextile". The opening characteristic of the pores of Hipertex® is designed precisely to retain the particles and allow free movement of the water. Without this condition, the migration of the soil could reduce the bearing capacity of the construction. Hipertex® has replaced the classic gravel filters drainage into dewatering trenches, along the river banks, in the reservoirs, foundation walls, and athletic facilities. Our articles are designed to allow liquids to pass in the draining systems as in the micropore tubes and at the same time to retain the finer particles while avoiding their migration into the drainage."
