EGA 40

BaseLok GC40T

Baselok GeoCell

GC40T sections are manufactured from (58) 312" long HDPE strips. Section is 29 cells L X 11 cells W. Weld spacing is 28.0 in ± 0.12 in. Cell density is 8.3 cells/sm. Cell walls are textured with rhomboidal indentations having a surface density of 140 to 200/sq in. If perforated, 13% ± 3% of cell wall is removed. 
Color: Standard strips are black. (Tan, Green, other colors with no heavy metal content available upon request).
Stabilizer: Hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS) 2.0% by weight of carrier.
Cell Depths: 2" (50mm), 3" (75mm), 4" (100mm), 6" (150mm), 8" (200mm)
