For more than 35 years, SAGEOS has brought together a team of multidisciplinary experts in geosynthetics both for the development of these products and for the design of a test plan to evaluate their performance.

Lightweight and durable, geosynthetics are alternative materials to traditional building products. They are developed for many applications, including infrastructure and road construction, civil engineering, environmental protection, waste management, drainage and irrigation, as well as building shells.

Highly specialized and functional products, they comprise a wide range of specific products: geomembranes, geotextiles, geotubes, geocomposites, geo-nets, geogrids, etc.

To benefit fully from all advantages to geosynthetics, it is important to know how to choose the right material for the right application.

With mastery in aspects of chemistry, manufacturing technology, implementation, and on-site application of geosynthetics, SAGEOS experts can support you in the optimal development of your products.

EXPERTS AND STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT
The research and development Centre is supported by a diversified fleet of characterization equipment dedicated to the many applications of geosynthetics. We highlight key characteristics of geosynthetics. SAGEOS has established itself over the years to become the most modern geosynthetics laboratory in Canada, and one of the most important centres of expertise in the world.

This reputation allows SAGEOS today to attract some of the best talent in the industry, whether they are engineers, researchers or highly qualified technicians.
