IKOtex Ultra is a heavy duty non-woven geotextile, ideal for use as a stabilising membrane for paths, patios and driveways. It is made from high quality polypropylene fibres, and is designed to allow water through whilst separating and stabilising construction layers.
IKOtex Ultra is suitable for use as reinforcement for roads, paths, balcony surfaces, patios and driveways. It can also be used to protect sand, grass and other sensitive areas from pollution, or to separate layers of soil in garden pots. It provides good protection for drainage systems and can also be used to help insulate garden ponds.
Before use, remove all large stones and other material which may damage the fabric and level the area to remove any uneven surfaces. Stubborn weeds should be treated with a strong weed killer prior to application of the fabric.
It is recommended that the aggregate mix used consists of varying sizes of stone, chippings etc including small material that can be compacted to give a stable surface. If the finished surface will support vehicles, the depth of aggregate should be between 30-40cm (12-16") after compaction.
To protect the fabric whilst laying, regularly spread the aggregate to a depth that will allow for compaction, and avoid using the surface for access until the aggregate is fully compacted.
