One of the major advances of polymers has been their use in the geotechnical engineering industry, whether geotextile, impervious geomembrane or geogrid.

The reason for this growth is that geosynthetics have proven themselves highly successful by providing solutions to geotechnical problems that conventional techniques could not or gave poor performance eg flexibility, corrosion, gas permeability and chemical resistance.

As the use of polymers in geotechnical engineering has increased, so has the demand on polymer properties.

Hubron produces a range of Carbon Black masterbatches suitable that can extend the life of geotechnical polymeric compounds using specially selected carbon black together with antioxidant packages to promote optimum weathering and thermal stability performance to comply with international standards and specifications such as GRI GM13.
