“Geosynthetics play a crucial role in answering the demanding application conditions of the construction and civil engineering industries. Our high-tenacity fibres, optimally engineered woven geotextiles and custom made geocomposites can reinforce their increasing popularity in these segments by offering opportunities to improve or tailor product performance and even achieve system cost reductions,” said Karena Cancilleri, Vice President Beaulieu Engineered Products, Beaulieu International Group.

“With Asia Pacific expected to lead market growth between now and 2023, we are looking forward to being on-the-ground to demonstrate our constant innovation to support the evolution of products for this important region.”

Beaulieu Fibres International (BFI)’s range of high tenacity PP staple fibres are said to offer high tensile strength without compromising on elongation. Their combination of properties supports the production of lightweight high-performance tear-resistant geotextiles for heavy-duty engineering and construction nonwovens. A higher dtex range is available for environmental applications.
