PRS-Neoloy® Geocell is an innovative soil stabilization and road reinforcement technology for civil engineering and infrastructure.
It is a 3D honeycomb geosynthetics made from Neoloy® – a nano-polymeric alloy (NPA) for unparalleled performance: stiffness, creep resistance and service life. Neoloy-based geocells stabilize weak soil while providing engineering, environmental and economic advantages than HDPE geocells, geogrids, chemical additives or any other reinforcement geosynthetics.
Three dimensional cells made of a strong and stiff polymer (Neoloy) mechanically confine weak soil to increase the strength of infill and reinforce pavements. The result is higher engineering performance, sustained for long-term, achieved with much lower construction and maintenance costs.
- How Neoloy Geocell technology works?
- How to improve your project performance?
- How to overcome challenges at much lower costs?
Following a vast R&D process, PRS proven engineering methods using neoloy geocells provide you with the most optimized geocell configuration tailored to your project needs. These methods were adopted by leading engineering institutes and were successfully used in 1000’s of projects.
- What are the 4 Key Factors for choosing geocells?
- What Geocell Properties are Required for Your Project?
- How can you lower costs by choosing the right geocell configuration?
Geocells mechanically confine soil based on its cell geometry. Upon loading, every polymer material elongates (creep) over time. As a result, the geocell confinement is reduced. Neoloy is a strong and stiff Novel Polymer Alloy (NPA). Thanks to its unique properties Geocells made of Neoloy sustain loading for long-term without any degradation in performance.
- Why Geocells made of Neoloy guarantee your project success?
- What Geocell properties provide the required design performance for the entire project lifespan?
- Why Neoloy Geocells are the new generation of soil stabilization geosynthetics?
