STRATA GLOBAL

OVERVIEW

A boon for soil reinforcement

StrataGrid™ (geogrid) is a high performance soil reinforcement solution that is produced by knitting high-tenacity polyester yarn into a dimensionally-stable network of apertures to form a geometric grid. StrataGrid’s tensile strength and high molecular weight offer both vertical and horizontal soil reinforcement, and its proprietary UV-stabilized coating compound provides enhanced durability against the elements. StrataGrid™ provides industry leading elongation and stress strain values and guarantees a structure life of more than 100 years.

Geogrid reinforcement can resolve both technical and cost challenges and make previously unusable land usable. One of the most dramatic areas in which this can be seen is in the development of space-saving mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) systems that deliver stronger, more economical infrastructure with less of an impact on the environment.

StrataGrid™ HyTen

StrataGrid™ HyTen is our line of high strength geogrids (>200kN/m or 13,704 lbs/ft tensile strength) used for construction of embankments over soft soil ground conditions. StrataGrid™ HyTen enables the embankment to be constructed directly on top of organic peat and clay-type soils with safe design methods, and is also used to limit vertical settlements and provide a solid reinforced soil foundation over voids.

MANUFACTURING

How it’s made?

StrataGrid™ is manufactured in the state-of-the-art manufacturing plant located in India.
The manufacturing process involves 3 phases:

Beaming

A predetermined number of yarn ends are pulled from a creel and are wound onto a large cylindrical beam. We have fully automated, highly sophisticated beaming machinery, which ensures uniformity in yarn tension and take-up and unwinding stability.

Knitting

Using state-of-the-art knitting machines, high tenacity Polyester yarn is precision-knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures that serves as a highly stable, high modulus precursor to the coating process. 

Coating

The greige fabric obtained from the processes described above is taken on to a one-of-a-kind, ultra-modern coating machine where the greige fabric is coated with a proprietary SBR-based coating compound, which lends it durability, dimensional stability and resistance to installation damage.

APPLICATIONS

Where does StrataGrid™ come into play?

We guide engineers, contractors, and owners to use StrataGrid™ to achieve cost effective, sustainable, and reliable solutions for various site development challenges.

QUALITY TESTING

How long does it last?

The dilemma facing most design engineers is that all geosynthetic reinforcements are not created equal. The long-term performance of a geogrid is dependent on several factors such as raw materials used, the manufacturing process adopted, the designs, and the end application.

Since, geogrids are used for critical designs, it is essential to have a clear understanding of the above factors. StrataGrid™ undergoes exhaustive testing at internationally reputed laboratories to define all of the above factors.
