A non-woven polypropylene filter fabric that may be used with CULTEC Contactor® and Recharger® stormwater installations. CULTEC Stormwater Systems are typically enveloped top, sides and bottom with filter fabric in order to provide a barrier that prevents soil intrusion into the stone.
CULTEC No. 66 Woven Geotextile is designed to provide an economical solution to prevent scouring at inlets and beneath the CULTEC internal manifold feature. It may also utilized below the chambers of the CULTEC Separator Row as a barrier to prevent soil/ contaminate intrusion and allow maintenace of the water quality system.
CULTEC No. 66 is a woven geotextile of 100% high-tenacity, slit-film polypropylene yarns which are woven into a stable network such that they retain their relative position, and finished with selvage edges to prevent fraying. CULTEC No. 66 achieves higher tensile strengths at low elongation (high modulus),and is inert to biological degradation and resistant to naturally encountered chemicals, alkalis, and acids.
AASHTO M 288-06: CULTEC No. 66 exceeds the geotextile requirements for SEPARATION / CLASSES 1 and 2 (WOVEN) and STABILIZATION / CLASSES 1 and 2 (WOVEN).
CULTEC recommends taping off the installation location during construction to prevent any equipment or vehicles from traversing over the chambers until the system has been completely installed, backfilled and paved (where applicable) according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
