Needle Punched MARIX is a civil engineering material for golf courses that takes advantage of the features of polyester Spunbond nonwoven fabric. With unique water permeability, the fabric can drain water in both vertical and Horizontal directions. Its superior drainage is particularly useful for bunkers; no elevation of the ground surface occurs. The material is very strong and highly durable. It is used in greens, bunkers, and fairways in over 400 golf courses nationwide.

Benefits
  • Drainage effect
    Made of Spunbond nonwoven fabric, Needle Punched MARIX can drain water in both vertical and Horizontal directions.
  • Filter effect
    Filaments tangled into felt fabric provides a filter effect equivalent to or greater than sand.
  • Reinforcement effect
    Needle Punched MARIX prevents greens, tee grounds, and fairways from sinking unevenly and makes the ground stable.
  • Separation effect
    In a bunker, Needle Punched MARIX separates the soil of the base ground from sand and prevents their mixing, keeping the sand looking clean.
