Belarus-based Machina-TST has specialized in geosynthetics manufacturing since 2010. The wide range of materials and sustained high quality has quickly stimulated the company’s growth. The primary production facility is equipped with the most up-to-date equipment from Germany, Italy, Belgium. Raw materials are thoroughly selected and purchased from renowned suppliers. And, Machina-TST’s internal quality control is highlighted by ISO 9001 certification and recognition from independent laboratories such as VNIIGS (Saint Petersburg, Russia) and KIWA-TBU (Germany).
Machina-TST geosynthetics are utilized in markets throughout Europe, including Poland, Germany, Hungary, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Serbia, and others. The company is also pursuing overseas expansion.
The growing line of geosynthetics includes geogrids, geotextiles, turf reinforcement mats, and geocomposites (e.g., geotextile-geogrid composites). These materials are being used in road construction, mining, embankments on soft soil, oil and gas applications, erosion control, railways, and elsewhere.

Machina-TST geogrids include the ASPHALTEX, GRUNTEX, STRADEX, and MULTITEX and Multitex brands.
STRADEX PET is used in base reinforcement applications
STRADEX PROSET is used in slope and embankment works
MULTITEX is a composite reinforcement material featuring a robust geogrid and a nonwoven geotextile for reinforcement, drainage/filtration, and soil separation functions.
STABBUDTEX is a geotextile produced by weaving (sometimes by warp knitting) of high modulus polyester yarns, which allow to achieve tensile strength 2000 kN/m at very low elongation. Available in widths up to 5.1m. Applications include embankments on soft soils; hydraulic engineering (e.g., dams), steep slope and channel reinforcement; construction of support structures or slopes with high steepness; and reinforcement of soils with low bearing capacity.
In addition to the MULTITEX line (see “GEOGRIDS” above), Machina-TST offers other geocomposites solutions for infrastructure.
These include DUALTEX PET, which features a geogrid-geotextile construction and bitumen impregnation for maximum adhesion to asphalt concrete layers;
DUALTEX GLASS, with its 100% polypropylene, UV-stabilized, mechanically bonded, continuous fibers that are reinforced with glass rovings;
High-strength DUALTEX BASALT, with its basalt fiber geogrid and its ultrafine nonwoven polypropylene substrate impregnated with bitumen;
GRUNTEX 3D is a geotextile produced of high modulus synthetic yarns by warp knitting with further polyvinylchloride coating. The material is used for strengthening of slopes, embankments and shorelines, and as protection from water- and wind erosion.
Halting Reflective Cracking: Machina Adds to Roadway Geosynthetics Line
Pavement durability is always of concern in roadway projects, for safety, cost control, and responsible future planning. Geosynthetics offer a number of solutions to improve roadway performance, including prevention of reflective cracking. Machina-TST has made a strong impression in the road-building market with products such as ASPHALTEX (a PET, bitumen-coated geogrid) and DUALTEX (a geogrids-geo... »
Logistics Center on Geogrids in Belarus to Be New Silk Road
In late 2017, construction began on a multimodal transportation, industrial, and logistics center in Bolbasovo, which is located in the Orsha region of Belarus. The 230-ha site will function as the linchpin in a “new silk road” between China and Europe. The area is supported by convenient access to railways, an airport, and the intersection of major west-east and north-south Trans-European highway... »
Asphalt Reinforcement with Geogrid on Europe’s M1 Highway
The M1 Highway is a major European route, connecting Moscow and Warsaw. Along the way, the trunk road passes through Smolensk and crosses into Belarus to connect the major cities of Minsk and Brest to the roadway system. When a section along the Brest – Moscow portion suffered fatigue cracking, a geosynthetic asphalt reinforcement solution was specified. M1 ASPHALT REINFORCEMENT The problematic cr... »
Runway Reinforcement for National Airport in Minsk, Belarus
The national airport in Minsk has been undergoing significant construction as it prepares to decommission what has been its primary runway. The new runway, which is being engineered to support the larger, more diverse aircraft used today, began construction in late 2016. A runway reinforcement solution from Machina-TST was utilized, ensuring that the new system supports not just larger aircraft bu... »
A Sustainable Success Award for Machina-TST’s Geosynthetics Business
On 17 November 2017, in the Small Hall of the Palace of the Republic in Minsk, Belarus, the national Entrepreneur of the Year awards ceremony took place. Among the many businesses honored was rapidly growing geosynthetics manufacturer Machina-TST. The company, which is based in Mogilev, was one of six companies with more than 300 employees recognized for sustainability—which in this context was to... »
