Beaulieu International Group (BIG) will showcase industry-leading polypropylene (PP) staple fibres for heavy-duty and lightweight nonwoven geotextiles, ready-to-use woven geotextiles and solutions for geocomposites at the 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics ICG 2018 to be held during September 16 to 21 in the South Korean capital Seoul.
Karena Cancilleri, vice president Beaulieu Engineered Products, Beaulieu International Group, comments: “Geosynthetics play a crucial role in answering the demanding application conditions of the construction and civil engineering industries. Our high tenacity fibres, optimally engineered woven geotextiles and custom made geocomposites can reinforce their increasing popularity in these segments by offering opportunities to improve or tailor product performance and even achieve system cost reductions. With Asia Pacific expected to lead market growth between now and 2023, we are looking forward to being on-the-ground to demonstrate our constant innovation to support the evolution of products for this important region.”
Beaulieu Fibres International (BFI)’s high tenacity PP staple fibres offer high tensile strength without compromising on elongation. Their combination of properties supports the production of lightweight high performance tear-resistant geotextiles for heavy-duty engineering and construction nonwovens. The consistent quality fibres provide opportunities to reduce geotextile system cost by maximising machine efficiency, ensuring desired performance and saving weight of up to 15 per cent compared with standard geotextile fibres. A higher dtex range is available for environmental applications.
Beaulieu Technical Textiles (BTT) will present its variety of functionality-focused Terralys PP woven geotextiles solutions to ICG visitors, including off-the-shelf and customised fabric constructions optimally engineered to meet stringent geotechnical specifications.
BTT has in-house expertise in extrusion, weaving, coating and lamination techniques which enables it to work in close technical collaboration with customers on the development of customised geotextiles and geocomposites. Terralys geotextile solutions are used worldwide for separation, filtration and reinforcement, and can also be used as components for geosynthetic clay liners (GCL). (SV)
