Soil erosion and degradation of nature’s resources are creating a great threat to the environment around us. Concerted efforts are now on to rejuvenate and restore degraded lands with the help of geotextiles. Coir geo textile, made from coconut fibre is available in different mesh matting. Coir fibres are of different types and are classified according to varying degree of colour, length and thickness. Length of coir varies from 50mm to 150mm and diameters vary from 0.20mm to 0.60 mm
Coir has the highest tensile strength than any other natural fiber and retains much of its tensile strength when wet. It is also very long lasting, with infield service life of 4 to 10 years. The reason for the greater strength of coir is its high lignin content. Because of its high tensile and wet strength, coir matting can be used in very high flow velocity conditions. Studies shows that coir geotextile is capable to prevent surface erosion and facilitates in sedimentation of soil on previously exposed rock surfaces.
Geotextile is used in ground and civil engineering applications for improving the soil behaviour, preventing soil erosion and help consolidation of the soil. These permeable fabrics have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect and drain. Geotextiles are available in different forms such as meshes, grids, geo beds, antiweed blankets, needled felts, erosion control blankets, geo-rolls, geo-webs and fascines.Properties of Coir Geotextiles
Vayalar exports produce a full line of 100% natural woven coir erosion control mats. These rolled erosion control mats are carefully manufactured in our looms using natural coir fiber. These woven coir mats are produced in 3 types, 400, 700 and 900 gm so as to make them suitable for uses like Slope Stabilization, Stream bank Stabilization and Channel Restoration.
Our Coir Geotextile products minimize soil erosion and sediment runoff. Technical expertise combined with direct access to copious coir resources enables us to offer perfectly engineered, cost-effective and environmentally safe and Coir Geo-Textile products such as woven coir erosion control mats and Coir logs If you are interested in finding more information about Coir Geotextiles, please contact us.
