On this occasion we will discuss geotextile tube materials. That way, you can get maximum benefits from geotextile tubes with proper use and supervision by experts.

Geotextile bags are a type of geosynthetic material used in various types of construction. Not only that, this product also has various other uses that you may not have known about before.

One of them is as a method to break high sea waves so that they do not reach residential areas. Because there will be a lot of losses if big waves reach residential areas because there are no geotubes to break the waves.


Geotextile Tube Materials, What Is It Made from?

The sea is a source of income for the people living around it. Apart from being fishermen, the community also usually develops the sea as a tourist area which can later attract tourists to visit.

But this will be disturbed if the sea experiences large tides and waves. Big waves can disturb the activities of fishermen and the activities of tourists who visit to enjoy the freshness of the beach water.

To prevent this from happening, you can use one of the most advanced technologies that has been used in various types of construction, namely geotextile tubes. However, do you know what materials geotextile tubes are made from?

There’s no need to worry if you don’t know this, because that’s what we will explain in the discussion of geotube materials. For this reason, you can read the discussion about geotextile tube materials.

1.     Polypropylene

The first material used to make geotubes or geotextile tubes is polypropylene. Polypropylene is a geotextile material that is often used because it has the characteristic of excellent tensile strength.

Apart from that, Polypropylene also has very strong resistance to environmental conditions. It is not surprising that polypropylene is often used as one of the main materials for making geotextile tubes, which is also the main topic of discussion this time.

Polypropylene also has other advantages, namely excellent resistance to dangerous chemicals. This makes this material very suitable as the main material for making geotubes for waste storage.

2.     Polyethylene

The next material used as raw material for making geotubes is Polyethylene. You can find polyethylene in objects made of plastic and you probably usually use it in your daily activities.

Interestingly, Polyethylene has a unique ability, namely that it is resistant to corrosion. Not only that, this material also has good resistance to chemicals which makes it able to be used for various geotube applications.

3.     Polymer

Apart from polyethylene and polypropylene, geotubes are also usually made using polymer materials such as polyester or even nylon. Geotubes made from these two materials are usually made for several reasons that depend on the specific needs of the project and the environmental conditions around the work project.

So the use of geotubes must also be readjusted to the needs and conditions of the environment. Know your geotube needs so you can feel the maximum benefits of using geotubes.

Geotube is a material that is quite strong and can be used for dozens of years. All of this is because the geotube material is made from the selected geotextile tube materials that we have explained above.
