Tensar® Uniaxial Geogrids for Soil Reinforcement
THE ENGINEERED ADVANTAGE®
EXPERIENCE YOU CAN RELY ON
Tensar® Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids are manufactured
using select grades of high-density polyethylene
(HDPE) resins that are highly oriented and resist
elongation (creep) when subjected to high tensile loads
for long periods of time. Geogrids manufactured from
HDPE provide high resistance to installation damage
and chemical or biological long-term degrad­ation. In
fact, Tensar UX Geogrids have shown no degradation
after long term exposure to pH levels as high as 12 and
can be used in both dry and wet-cast environments.
Tensar International Corporation (Tensar), the leader in
geosynthetic soil reinforcement, offers a variety of
solutions for foundation, retaining wall and roadway
projects. Our products and technologies, backed
by the most thorough quality assurance practices,
are at the forefront of the industry. Highly adaptable,
cost-effective and installation friendly, they provide
exceptional, long-term performance under the
most demanding conditions. Our support services
include site evaluation, design consulting and site
construction assistance. For innovative solutions to
your engineering challenges, rely on the experience,
resources and expertise that have set the industry
standard for more than two decades.

does not require weaving, coating or welding to maintain
the product’s integrity.
TENSILE STRENGTH
Tensar UX Geogrids can carry high tensile loads applied in
one direction (along the roll length). Their open aperture
structure interlocks with fill material to provide superior
load transfer from the soil to the geogrid. Tensar UX
Geogrids achieve their strength by punching and drawing
a homogenous polymer sheet to provide a uniform,
consistent product that does not require weaving,
coating or welding to maintain the product’s integrity.
This unique process provides superior junction strength
allowing high strength connections to other rolls of
geogrid or facing components.
Tensar Geogrids are used for high strength soil
reinforcement in wall and slope applications. Over
100-million square feet of retaining structures in
service today are reinforced with Tensar UX Geogrids.
Tensar UX Geogrids install easily in stand alone applications as well as in
conjunction with one of our proprietary soil stabilization systems.
