Highlights

General Information

ACETex® Protect is a woven geotextile made from durable high tenacity polypropylene fibres. The product has
been designed with high tensile strength and at moderate strain levels. The product has been manufactured
with additional additives to create a durable cover fabric.

Product Information 

ACETex® Protect is a woven geotextile that has been designed for specific applications requiring a well stabilised
cover fabric.

Over 90% strength retention is achieved by ACETex Protect when tested in accordance with accelerated weathering tests- ASTM D4355. Global Synthetics are willing to assist you in determining the suitability of this product for your landfill project. Inter face shear testing has been carried out against both smooth and textured geomembrane surfaces.

Benefits of ACETex® Protect

  • Excellent filtration characteristics with high tensile strength
  • Outstanding durability proven in both lab and outdoor tests
  • High quality and durability to ensure structure safety
  • Easy handling and installation to reduce construction time and costs
  • Cost Effective

Furthermore, ACETex® Protect geotextiles offer more advantages of easy construction and cost saving because its weight is lighter than most similar products. ACETex® Protect geotextile is available in various tensile strengths, woven structures and sizes to meet diverse project engineering needs.

Applications

Typical applications are in landfills, where a geomembrane may require the additional assistance of a
sacrificial stable geotextile placed over the underlying geomembrane (primary containment layer) to assist
against UV membrane deterioration until such time as the landfill waste reaches a level such that full and
permanent cover is achieved.
