What is Geotextile & Why We Are the Top Geotextile Manufacturers?


Shankar Techx is a leading Geotextile manufacturer in India that provides versatile and durable Geotextile materials. We offer a wide range of Geosynthetic fabrics available in various sizes and colours to meet our clients’ demands. These fabrics are used alongside rivers, dams, canals, and on slopes of hills to stop erosion of soil and landslides. The collection of open mesh is constructed completely of biodegradable and natural Coir.

When forming the vegetative cover, these naturally-made nets protect the seeds and soil intact. It provides organic nutrients to the ground while it degrades. Different types of geotextiles are classified in various ways based on the processes used to manufacture them.

Shankar Techx’s Agro tech products are certified as quality with the most stringent manufacturing standards at ISO-accredited quality facilities for the international and domestic market. It is wrapped in the outer layer of a UV-resistant wrapper, allowing the product to be left outdoors for use later. We provide nonwoven geotextiles of continuous filament in various strengths, weights, and filtering qualities to meet various engineering projects’ requirements. In addition, they are obtainable in different lengths and widths that accommodate your demands.

Definition of Geotextile

Geotextiles are technical fabrics that are used in landscaping, agriculture, construction, as well as eco-management.

Sectors Geotextiles Are Used for:

  • Transportation
  • Marine and ports
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Power
  • Mines
  • Heavy Industries
  • Flood protection
  • Landscaping, etc.

Geotextile Purpose

Geotextiles use is a popular choice in civil, construction, agriculture, marine, and environmental engineering for filtration, drainage, separation, and Protection. Geotextiles are cost-effective, and if planned and used correctly, they could be substituted for conventional granular treatments with significant savings as well as in the aggregate amount used and the labour cost for installing such a system.

Functions of Geotextiles

  • Separation
  • The process of filtration
  • Drainage
  • Protection
  • Reinforcement
  • Stabilization

Woven Geotextiles

Woven geotextiles are made through weaving. The individual threads, like monofilaments, fibrillated threads, slit film, and many others, are made to form a large, uniform piece of fabric on a weaving loom. Geotextiles woven with a loom have a large loading capacity because of this process, making them suitable for applications such as road construction. As these geotextile material is created through weaving films or threads in a single layer, they’re not impenetrable and, therefore, aren’t suitable for jobs requiring drainage. Similar properties make the geotextiles ideal for erosion control projects where water must pass through the surface, not sink into the soil beneath.

Functions of Woven Geotextiles

  • Separation
  • Reinforcement
  • Filtration
  • Stabilization.

Sectors use Woven Geotextiles

  • Water resources
  • Transportation water resources
  • Flood control
  • Irrigation ports

Salient Features of Woven Geotextiles

  • Superior resistance
  • More permeability
  • Rot-resistant
  • Biological degradation resistant
  • Chemically inert and UV-resistant
  • Tensile strength
  • It can handle heavy loads

Applications of Woven Geotextiles

  • Road stabilization
  • The barrier of the soft ground
  • Support for railroads
  • Rip and Rap support
  • Separation of aggregates
  • Control of erosion

Non-Woven Geotextiles

Geotextiles made of non-woven materials are produced using thermal or chemically glueing substances together, needle-punching, or any other process instead of weaving fabric using the weaving loom. They are made from synthetic materials and are often used for separation and filtering applications. Non-woven geotextile material are not necessarily ideal for strengthening and stabilization projects. They are often used to block the external and internal perforation membranes for lining systems. Non-woven geotextiles will degrade faster than geotextiles made of woven material. Non-woven geotextiles, however, tend to be the most suitable option for projects in which pooling water is an issue.

Function of Non-Woven Geotextiles

  • Separation
  • Drainage
  • Filtration
  • Erosion Management.

Sectors use Non-Woven Geotextiles.

They’re strong and long-lasting and are suitable for industries such as:

  • Transportation
  • Rail Construction Ports
  • Marine and Port Embankments
  • Water Resources
  • liner Protection.
  • Residential Plumbing
  • Real Estate and Management.

Salient Features of Non-Woven Geotextiles

  • Very flexible
  • Elongation and high tensile strength
  • Puncture resistance
  • Fantastic filtration
  • Mechanically strong.
  • Greater resistance to installation damage

Applications of Non-Woven Geotextiles

  • Asphalt overlay
  • Control of erosion
  • Products for environmental engineering
  • Sediment dewatering bags
  • Coastal Protection
  • Subsurface drainage
  • Landscaping
  • Landfills
