ECOBAG Soft Weights utilize proven polypropylene fabric that is resistant to commonly encountered soil chemicals, mildew, and insects and is non-biodegradable. Polypropylene is stable with a pH range of 2 - 13 making it one of the most stable polymers available today. Polypropylene is the material of choice for geotextiles, especially relating to longevity underground. The permeability of the woven polypropylene fabric used to manufacture the ECOBAG does not impede cathodic protection making it the clear advantage.

With custom ECOBAG Geotextile Weights for every pipe size from 4" pipe to 48" pipe, Allan Edwards can ship "ready to install" ECOBAGs at any time to your project location as needed. For large volume project(s) where you want to save on transportation charges, contact us about custom filling at or near your site or right-of-way. The filling of ECOBAGs can be done at far remote locations as well.
