Texcel® Geotextile

Nonwoven geotextile

Texcel® geotextiles are a new generation of nonwoven staple fibre geotextiles manufactured by Geofabrics Australasia at their new modern facility at Ormeau, South Queensland. Texcel® geotextiles are manufactured using high quality polyester or polypropylene fibres to meet the technical demands required from a wide range of civil engineering applications.

Texcel® geotextiles have a unique staple fibre blend and an inbuilt flexibility to allow Engineers to specify mechanical and hydraulic criteria to suit tough New Zealand conditions. Texcel® P Range is manufactured for use in general civil applications and Texcel® R range for coastal and landfill applications.




Texcel® geotextiles, are high quality, isotropic, non woven staple fibre geotextiles which are supported by 25 years of research, development and testing. They are abrasion and UV-resistant and provide superior filtration for coastal applications. Texcel® geotextiles also have high elongation properties minimising installation damage and ensuring effective soil contact, interaction and stability.


Texcel® geotextiles are supplied fully wrapped in rolls up to 6m in width to minimise wastage and laps. Installation can be assisted with the use of a Geofabrics supplied spreader bar. Texcel® P geotextiles can be used to rapidly and economically construct roads and embankments over soft soils. The hydraulic properties of Texcel® P geotextiles make them ideal for use for drainage and filtration applications and also for use behind gabions and as temporary erosion control. Texcel® R geotextiles have specific UV and mechanical properties for use in coastal applications and these heavier grades are well suited as a cushioning layer to geomembrane liners in landfill and other containment applications.
