PRS-Neoloy® geocell is an innovative soil stabilization and road reinforcement technology for civil engineering and infrastructure. It is the only geocell made from Neoloy® – a nano-polymeric alloy (NPA) for unparalleled performance: stiffness, creep resistance and service life. Neoloy-based geocells offer many engineering, environmental and economic advantages than HDPE geocells, geogrids, chemical additives or reinforcement geosynthetics.
