Revolutionary Solution for Pumping Issues in Railways

TrackTex is a unique patented anti-pumping geocomposite manufactured by GEOfabrics Ltd. Used in live rail since 2010 it is a treatment for mud-pumping that provides maintenance savings to Rail Authorities across the USA, Europe, the UK and Australia with more than 10 million square feet installed worldwide.

Geofabrics have over 30 years of experience developing and manufacturing specialist geosynthetics for demanding applications and highly regulated markets. TrackTex was developed through collaboration with Rail Authorities, Material Scientists and Civil Engineers.

Revolutionary

Transforming the Railroad Industry with Innovative Technology

TrackTex is the result of more than 10 years research and development to provide a treatment for mud-pumping and sub-grade erosion. It has been shown to extend maintenance intervals by more than 25 times and so delivers huge cost and sustainability benefits.
