How to choose the best geocell solution for any project?
- Geocells are generally made of polymeric materials.
- Polymeric materials tend to deform and to lose their properties with time.
- When testing any geocell solution it’s important to take into consideration factors which effect the geocell’s durability.
- Each of the factors can be tested, to ensure short and long-term performance of geocells in any project life.
There are 4 key factors that are crucial for geocell’s durability:
The elastic behavior of a geocell will determine whether it will return to its shape once the deforming force has been removed.
Resistance to Creep –
Creep is the elongation of any polymeric material over time. Once elongated, this process can’t be reversed. Learn More
Cell Tensile Strength –
Tensile strength will determine the ability of the geocell to remain intact when applied tension on opposite ends. Learn More
Environmental Durability –
Geocell Environmental Durability will determine the survival capacity of the geocell under various conditions. Learn More
