Interlocking block (ILB)

With its superb water permeability and filter performance, Needle Punched MARIX helps create comfortable puddle-free pavements with no unevenness.

Where Needle Punched MARIX is used

Needle Punched MARIX precludes the loss of sand caused by rain water, thus preventing unevenness in the blocks.

Where Needle Punched MARIX is not used

Since Needle Punched MARIX is not used, the loss of sand is caused by rain water, leading to unevenness in the blocks.

Pavement of soft subgrades

With its filter performance (separation effect), Needle Punched MARIX prevents the base course material from mixing with soft subgrade soil, providing the ability to support the pavement.
