Cell Force

Performance of Cell Force™

Two-layer construction comprising core and covering materials is shock-resistant
EVA resin covers and protects the core material (super-stretched polypropylene tape). This design minimizes strength reduction due to structural damage,even if debris is used as an embankment filling material. Strength retention of debris=94% or more.

A high creep reduction coefficient facilitates cost-effective design
Cell Force has a high creep reduction coefficient(high tensile strength in the long run)and allows design strength to be set at a high level,facilitating cost-effective design. Creep reduction coefficient=0.65.

Obtainment of a civil engineering review and certificate
Cell Force is fully reliable, as it has obtained a Japanese civil engineering review and certificate (#0214)from the Public Works Research Center.

A small percentage of elongation to reduce deformation of earth structure
The super-stretched poly-propylene tape used as a core material has a small percentage of elongation and minimizes deformation in the case of elevated embank- ments. Percentage of elongation=Approx.6%.

Performance of Cell Force

Registration with NETIS
Cell Force is registered with the New Technology Information System(NETIS)of the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport(KK-980052).

Workability of Cell Force™

Cell Force is easy to cut and lay,as it is soft and resists wrapage caused by winding
Soft EVA resin is used as a covering, which can be cut with a retractable knife or pinking shears. Cell Force is a fabric and therefore resists warpage caused by winding, for reduced labor in laying.

The width of the product is 2 m, to reduce the quantity per unit in laying work
Cell Force, 2 m in width,reduces the quantity per unit in laying work.

Work Management of Cell Force™

Markings on the product facilitate and ensure work management
The bands on Cell Force have part numbers indicating different types. Cell Force frees users from concerns about using the wrong type and facilitates and ensures efficient work management.

Work Management of Cell Force1

Cell Force is a reinforcement material that incorporates improvements on the features of the plastic nets previously used for surface treatment on soft ground and for reinforced embankment work.
