TenCate Introduces Environmentally Sustainable Drainage Geosynthetic
Extensive research results in new nonwoven geotextile
TenCate Geosynthetics introduces Mirafi MiraGreen D for site drainage applications for engineers and architects committed to designing environmentally sound projects. Mirafi MiraGreen D is a nonwoven drainage geotextile comprised of 30 percent (U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-calculated) recycled content. TenCate has developed, through extensive research, a uniquely reliable product that reduces dependence on virgin petroleum-based resins.Mirafi MiraGreen D recycled drainage geotextiles are used in a wide variety of drainage applications. Lightweight nonwovens are predominantly used for subsurface drainage applications along highways, green roofs, athletic fields and within embankments under airfields. For these drainage structures to be effective, they must have a properly designed protective filter. The geotextiles eliminate the problems of determining the aggregate gradation required to match soil conditions, finding a convenient and economical source of a specific aggregate gradation, transporting and placing graded aggregate and assuring that the inplace aggregate gradation provides effective filter performance.A product description sheet and technical data sheet can be viewed and downloaded at www.mirafi.com.
