SKAPS GC-160 is a needle-punched nonwoven geotextile made of 100% virgin polypropylene staple fibers, which are formed into a random network for dimensional stability. SKAPS GC-160 resists ultraviolet deterioration, rotting, biological degradation, and naturally encountered alkalis, and acids. Polypropylene is stable within the pH range of 2 to 13. SKAPS GC-160 meets the requirements as per D.O.T. Standards.
SKAPS GC-160 conforms to the Minimum Average Roll Values (MARV) listed below:
