Skaps industries background

SKAPS BX 1200 is a polypropylene geogrid especially designed for soil stabilization and reinforcement applications. BX 1200 geogrids are manufactured from a unique process of extrusion and punched and drawn to biaxial orientation to enhance tensile properties. SKAPS BX 1200 geogrids feature consistently high tensile strength and modulus, excellent resistance to construction damage, and environmental exposure.

Typical Applications :

Soft soil stabilization, base reinforcement, embankments over soft soils, working platforms, haul roads
