GEOSYNTHETICS LABORATORY

SPECIFIC DETERMINATIONS ON GEOCOMPOSITES, GEOTEXTILES AND GEOSYNTHETICS

We offer companies a range of solutions to meet every need regarding specific tests to characterise the use of geosynthetics in the construction industry and enable the successful completion of civil engineering and geotechnical construction projects.

We are able to perform every type of test designed to characterise the use and function of geocomposites, geotextiles and geosynthetics used in civil engineering and construction control. In compliance with the regulations in force in the European Community, CE marking is mandatory for geotextiles, geotextile-related products and geosynthetics.

GEOSYNTHETICS LABORATORY FACILITIES

  • Pioneering laboratory in Spain in the field of geosynthetics, geotextiles, geogrids and technical textiles

  • Equipped with the latest technology for testing geocomposites, geotextiles and geosynthetics

  • Laboratory able to perform all specific tests required to characterise geosynthetics for CE marking

  • Qualified, specialised staff who undergo constant training in the latest techniques
