Soft Grounds

In addition to high strength, Needle Punched MARIX has the advantage of being an extensible sheet that does not tear easily, supporting the embankment load and helping to make the ground stable. Not only does it secure trafficability for heavy equipment, but the Needle Punched MARIX sheet separates the embankment from the soft ground layer. It can also drain compressed water.
