Combined geogrid and geotextile
Achieve time savings when acquiring materials and overall quicker installations, thanks to SX Composite, a all-in-one solution that performs as both a biaxial geogrid and a geotextile. SX Composite consists of nonwoven geotextile thermally bonded to our popular SX range of geogrid. It provides the functions of reinforcement, separation and filtration into one single product, rather than having to use two separate solutions, which offers significant savings.
Geogrids and geotextiles are often used together to provide reinforcement, separation, and filtration properties. This can be on projects such as haul roads, permanent roads, working platforms and compounds.
SX Composite, combines all three functions into one, thermally bonded solution, providing significant time, labour and cost savings. Available in a choice of the two most popular tensile strengths, 30/30 and 40/40 (coming soon), ensuring specifiers and installers always have a solution on hand.
Developed with customer feedback and increased demand on construction materials in mind. Thanks to its multi-purpose function, you can save time when acquiring materials, and achieve an overall quicker installation.

SX Composite Benefits
Achieve improved stability on haul roads and access roads with SX Composite Geogrid.
SX Composite Geogrid offers increased usage ability for hard-to-reach or remote-access roads.
Reduced aggregate usage and shipping fewer products provides carbon savings on every project.
Achieve reduced labour and plant costs during every installation.
Applications for SX Composite
Compounds and haul roads
Achieve an economical design with rapid delivery and reduced costs on your compound or haul road.Compounds and haul roads
Safety is critical, quickly increase the bearing capacity and reduce platform thickness.Working platforms
Reduce your carbon emissions
We have a long history of providing excellent ground reinforcement, while also helping to reduce the amount of materials used.
Did you know the by using Wrekin's proven geogrids you can achieve savings of up to 50% in material required, due to the reduced amount of sub-base you need. This, combined with the separation and filtration properties in SX Composite Geogrid, will provide the perfect solution for a wide range of applications.
With SX Composite you'll only need to ship, handle and install one single roll, offering a significant reduction in carbon during transport and handling versus using separate materials.
Find out how much money and carbon you can save
When constructing a temporary road you can save money and decrease your carbon footprint by using a Wrekin biaxial geogrid to dramatically reduce the amount of aggregate required on your project.
Our easy to use calculate can give you an estimation of cost and carbons savings.

SX Composite Functions
Geosynthetics play an important role in improving soil characteristics in a wide range of civil engineering and infrastructure works. SX Composite geogrid provides cost and time-saving systems through the following functions:
Provides additional strength to soils and aggregate layers, distributing loads more evenly. Can be used to reinforce and stabilise ground over weak and variable soils reducing rutting.
Prevents intermixing of soil layers. Different-sized particles are unable to mix, allowing water and gasses to pass through, creating a stronger surface to build on with improved integrity.
Restricts the movement of particles, retaining soil or aggregates while allowing water to pass through the soil .
Whether you are looking for live project support, or are in the initial stages of specification, we are always on hand and happy to help.
