GeoCHEM. Inc. is your
one-stop source for American Manufactured Unilateral and Biaxial
GEOGRIDS & High Strength Polyester Fabrics that are truly
tough-enough & strong-enough to get the job done
for our core customer base in the construction, mining &
military industries. .
have been used to reinforce soil structures for the Department of Transportation,
United States Army
Corps of Engineers, United States Forest Service & Federal
Highway Administration along with several
high profile private sector projects. GEOGRIDS
are geosynthetics formed by a regular network of
integrally connected elements with apertures greater than 1/4" to allow
interlocking with surrounding soil, rock, earth and other surrounding materials
to function primarily as reinforcement.
GeoCHEM, Inc. can efficiently
modify products, per changing consumer needs. Case in point, GeoCHEM
can make 17’ GEOGRIDS and FABRIC widths while our
competitors only offer 12’ widths. Customized products are also
available so GeoCHEM customers can get exactly what they need — at the
lowest available cost (minimal production runs may
BI-AXIAL GEOGRIDS FOR BASE STABILIZATION
Biaxial geogrids are designed to have roughly the same tensile strength in
both directions and to distribute loads over a wider area, increasing the load
capacity of the soil. Base reinforcing geogrids interlock with the aggregate to
confine the base and reinforce the subgrade. In paved or unpaved applications,
they reduce rutting and help maintain the desired aggregate depth.
GeoCHEM, Inc. offers BaseGrid biaxial
geogrids for base reinforcement. They are manufactured by welding or
stitching together two layers of extruded, polypropylene, flexible geogrids to
create a continuous sheet that will not separate. The two grids are offset
before welding or stitching, creating a stable, continuous sheet with
random-sized apertures for improved soil interaction.

UNI-AXIAL GEOGRIDS FOR SLOPES & SRW'S
Uniaxial geo grids typically have their tensile strength in
the machine (roll) direction. They are mainly used to reinforce the soil mass in
a steepened slope or segmental retaining wall. On occasion, they function as a
wrapping to confine the aggregate in the wire forms of welded wire faced
GeoCHEM, Inc. uniaxial geogrids are made from polyester yarn, knitted or woven
into a stable structure and have a PVC or polymeric coating. These flexible,
user-friendly geogrids are inert to biological degradation and resistant to
creep, strain and naturally found chemicals. GeoCHEM, Inc. is pleased to offer
grid for retaining walls and slopes. Stratagrid is
the only precision knitted uniaxial geogrid available in the market today.
Some lighter strength polyester geogrids such as Stratagrid 150 are biaxial.
These flexible grids are perfect for retaining walls less than 6' tall and are
ideal for the novice retaining wall builder or homeowner.
