Outline

The definite geotextile for embankment and ground reinforcement in various applications

ADEAM is a high-strength, low-elongation, low-creep strain geotextile made from aramid fiber (Technora®), made in two types of HG type and F type.
ADEAM F type is a flexible woven fabric base type, with a special resin coating on a grid-style woven fabric made by interweaving polyester fibers and aramid fibers. Suitable for reinforcement of high embankment on gentle slopes, embankment reinforcement on soft ground and soft ground surface treatment work, etc.

Characteristics

  • High strength and low elongation characteristics enables to confine the soil, and build a safe embankment.
  • Excellent friction with soil
  • Excellent weather resistance, chemical resistance, cold / heat resistance and impact resistance

Application

Embankment reinforcement on soft ground

Soft ground treatment (Roll-up reinforcement)

  • * All of the mesh, quality control strength, and elongation rate  indicate “warp x weft”.
  •  * 1 Quality control strength: Standard strength in quality control tests (width of speciment [1 strand] / tensile strain speed [50% / min]) to check quality during product manufacturing under standard test environment
  • * 2 Product standard strength: The base strength for designing reinforced soil with ADEAM, and is the standard strength in performance confirmation tests (test specimen width [wide- width 20 cm] / tensile strain speed [1% / min].

Tensile / creep properties

Quality control strength is the strength per warp strand converted to the strength per 1 m width. Tensile strain speed 50% / min.

ADEAM has excellent characteristics against creep fracture, and the fracture strength after 106 hours is estimated to be near the figure shown above. ADEAM has a small creep strain and can fully exert a reinforcing effect.
