Neoloy®-based PRS-Neoweb™ geocells were specifically developed by PRS for the upper structural reinforcement of load support applications. PRS-Neoweb cellular confinement systems improve the modulus of the structural layers. This enables costly high-quality aggregate to be replaced with less expensive locally-available granular (non-cohesive) infill materials. In addition the pavement thickness of the structural layers may be reduced and the life-span of structural pavements increased.
The result– lower costs for every square meter of infill. No longer confined to weak subgrade soils with low CBR, PRS-Neoweb tough cells add value to each layer of the structural pavement, even to a base with high CBR.
The base layer may be subject to very high weight or number of dynamic loadings, as well as elevated temperatures and thermal cycling. The novel Neoloy alloy gives PRS-Neoweb geocells the high dimensional stability to maintain long-term confinement / compaction. In addition the PRS-Neoweb Modulus Improvement Factor (MIF) allows a reduction in the layer thickness of the asphalt, base and subgrade layers to save even more in project and life-cycle costs.
