Geocell VS GeoGrid

What is the best for you? Geocell or GeoGrid

People are confused when they are going to select the materials for their project. So what is the difference between a geocell and a geogrid? Now, we will make  you a short comparisond, so that you can have a good understanding of them, inas to facilitate your choice in the future.

What is geocell?

Geocell is a kind of new geosynthetic material, which is a kind of three-dimensional mesh cell structure formed by welding of reinforced HDPE sheet. During construction, the geocell can be easily stretched into a network, and the structure with large stiffness can be formed after filling in loose materials such as soil, gravel and concrete.

Geocell features

  • Easy to fold, easy to transport
  • Material light, wear – resistant, stable chemical properties
  • Light oxygen aging resistance, acid and alkali resistance

Geocell is widely used in:

  • Stabilizing railway subgrade,
  • stabilizing soft foundation treatment of highway
  • supporting structure of pipeline and sewer
  • Slope protection engineering projects
  • load-bearing mixed retaining wall, desert, beach and riverbed, river management, etc.

What is GeoGrid?

Geogrids are made of polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride and other high polymer by thermoplastic or molded into a two-dimensional grid or three-dimensional grid screen with a certain height.

 

GeoGrid features

  • high strength, strong bearing capacity,
  • small deformation, small creep
  • corrosion resistance, large friction coefficient, long life

GeoGrid is widely used in:

It is widely used in

  • road, railway, abutment
  • approach road, wharf, dam, slag yard and
  • other soft soil foundation reinforcement, retaining wall
  • pavement crack resistance engineering and other fields.
  • Similarities

Polymer composite materials; It has the characteristics of high strength, strong bearing capacity, small deformation, small creep, corrosion resistance, large friction coefficient, long life, convenient and quick construction. Are used in highway, railway, abutment, approach, wharf, dam, slag field, such as soft soil foundation reinforcement, retaining wall and pavement crack engineering and other fields.

  • Difference

1. Shape structure: the geocell is a three-dimensional mesh cell structure, and the geocell is a two-dimensional mesh or a three-dimensional mesh screen structure with a certain height.
2. Lateral restriction and stiffness: geocell is better than geogrid.
3. Bearing capacity and dispersed load: geocell is better than geogrid.
4. Anti-skid and anti-deformation ability: geocell is better than geogrid.
