The GBX Series is a competitively priced full-line of biaxial geogrids that employs the same combination of technology and materials which have demonstrated decades of proven success in the United States and throughout the world.
Design Engineers can specify with confidence that the GBX Series of geogrids will provide the cost effective performance and reliability that the industry has come to trust.
Contractors can be assured of seam-less submittals and project approvals when the GBX Series of integrally formed geogrids is their product line of choice.
Carthage Series of Segmental Retaining Wall (SRW) Geogrids
Carthage Mills has partnered with Synteen and is now offering SRW Geogrids that are manufactured from high-tenacity, high molecular weight polyester (PET) fibers in a full range of tensile strengths designed to meet the most demanding soil reinforcement applications; including Ultimate Tensile up to 29,750 lbs/ft.
These Geogrids are woven in a stable, interlocking grid, placed under tension and polymer coated to provide excellent resistance to chemical and biological degradation within the pH range common to buried reinforcement applications.
The special polymer coating on our SWR Geogrids also increases the dimensional stability of the product enhancing soil interaction properties and protecting against construction related installation damage.
GUX UNIAXIAL (RIGID POLYETHYLENE)
Carthage Mills’ GUX Series Geogrids are manufactured using select grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins that are highly oriented and resist elongation (creep) when subjected to high tensile loads for long periods of time.
Carthage GUX Series Geogrids, manufactured from HDPE, provide high resistance to installation damage and chemical or biological long-term degradation, and have shown no degradation in pH situations as high as 12 and can be used in both dry and wet-cast environments.
