Terrafix is multifunctional
Terrafix is a versatile material and is used for a
wide range of functions including: single or multi-
lay ered geotextile filters, sand ballast mats, sand
containers or tubes and scour protection. Terrafix
nonwovens and sand mats act as separators and fil-
ters in hydraulic engineer ing applications such as
embankment construction, canal bed rehabilitation
and protection, and coastal works. Fabricated into
tubes, Terra fix can be used in harbour basin pro-
tection; Terrafix sand containers have been suc-
cess fully used in coastal and river bank protection.
Terrafix has high water permeabi lity, retains soil
and allows root growth so that bank protection
structures will blend unobtrusively with the natural
environ ment. Terrafix provides scour protection for
revetments, in waterways, around pillars and lon-
gitudinal and transverse hydraulic structures.
Terrafix is safe
More than 40 years of successful Terrafix nonwo-
ven geotextile applications in hydraulic engineer -
ing are proof of our high technical standards and
abilities. Tests carried out by the Federal Institute
for Waterways Engineering (Bundes anstalt fr Was-
serbau, BAW), as well as con tinuous manufacturing
and third-party quality control, affirm our commit-
ment to high quality. Terrafix stands out for its
flexi bility, filter stability, and resistance to abra-
sion. Terrafix conforms to almost any installation
surface and may even be covered directly with
heavy armour stone. Our extra-wide rolls reduce the
number of overlaps required to complete the job.
The excellent sewn-seam properties of Terrafix mi-
nimise displacement of adjacent panels during in-
stallation and operation.
Terrafix
is a single- or multi-layer, needle-punched nonwoven for separation, filtration,
protection and sand container applications.

Terrafix is economical
The easy and precise spreader bar installation
means high efficiency. This adds up to significant
economic savings when compared to conventional
granular filters. Using Terrafix makes the extrac-
tion, transport, and installation of high cost and
labour-intensive sand and gravel filter layers unne-
cessary; Terrafix may be covered directly with
heavy armour stone. Its proven durability ensures
long service lives of structures and minimises main-
tenance costs.
Terrafix is simple
The weather-proof and UV-resis tant wrapping pro-
tects Terrafix during transportation and on-site
and it can be off-loaded and stored with little ef-
fort. To facilitate installation, the rolls may be cut
on site with standard cutting devices.
Conclusion:
Terrafix is a high quality, robust and filter stable
geosynthetic which has been used successfully
through out the world in hydraulic engineer ing for
decades.

Carbofol
is a chemical resistant geomembrane with smooth of structure-embossed
surface for sealing applications.

Carbofol is multifunctional
Carbofol geomembranes provide a complete seal
against even the most toxic substances. Routinely
installed as a component of landfill base seals as
well as caps Carbofol protects groundwater from
contamination. Even the strictest regulations and
controls for the storage, filling, hand ling, manu-
facturing, treat ment and use of contaminated li-
quids, such as Germanys Water Conser vation Act
(WHG) and Britains Environ mental Pro tection Act
(EPA), are easily satis fied with Carbofol. The pro-
duct is also suitable for potable water and non-toxic
con tainment appli cations such as water conveyance
structures, canals or ponds. Indi vidual solutions can
also be developed for steeper slopes utilising our
structured-surface ma terial with higher friction co-
effi cients for greater safety.
Carbofol is safe
In 1989 Carbofol became the first geomembrane
certified by the Federal Institute for Material Te-
sting and Research (BAM). Currently, Carbofol
HDPE 507 (smooth and structured) 2.5 mm thick
are BAM certified for use in landfill engineering. For
ground wa ter pro tection appli cations, Carbo fol
geo membranes (2.0 mm) are certified by the Ger-
man Institute for Con struc tion Technology (DIBt)
and are of course also available according to GM
13 requirements. Fur ther international certificati-
ons for Carbofol have been issued in, amongst ot-
hers, most European countries. Extensive
manufacturing and third-party qua lity control allow
complete documentation of pro duc tion from the raw
material to the finished product. Carbofol is ex-
treme ly durable, and is both extremly che mically
and UV resis tant. Welding of seams and repairs is
done by state-of-the-art welding equipment which
records all per tinent data as welding is per formed.
Air pressure tests or va cuum tests verify the inte-
grity of the seams so you can be confident in the fi-
nished job.

Carbofol is economical
Utilising the most advanced wel ding technology
and with autho rised installation experts, quick and
efficient installation programmes are possible. The
superior weld abi lity of Carbofol means quicker in-
stal lation faci litating a speedier approval of your
projects.
Carbofol is simple
Side markings on the rolls indicate proper overlap
distances for the welding crews and protective
edge-strips main tain a clean surface prior to wel-
ding. Structural details such as attachments and pe-
ne trations are easily carried out di rect ly on site. The
entire process is effortless for the installer.
Conclusion:
Decades of successful applications are proof of the
high quality of Carbofol and our commitment to
excellence. Industry knows Carbofol for its pro-
blem-free manufacturing and instal l a tion even
when meeting the strictest permitting require-
ments. This translates into the safest and highest
quality available for your projects.

Secutex is multifunctional
Secutex geotextiles are used in many fields of civil
engineering including hydraulic engineering, land-
fill engineering, road construc tion and tunnel con-
struction. As a separation layer, Secutex prevents
individual and distinct granular layers from conta-
minating one another. Thus, structural fill and base
courses maintain their integrity for a substantially
longer period of time than otherwise possible. When
fine soil layers are present next to drainage layers
on highway or railway con struct ion projects, Secu -
tex functions as a filter preventing fine soil parti-
cles from washing through and com promi sing the
drainage ability of the coarser layers. Displacement
of small amounts of water in problem areas is faci-
litated by the in-plane Secu tex transmissiv ity. Se-
cutex nonwoven geo textiles with a high mass per
unit area can also protect geomembranes or pipes
against mechanical damage. If necessary, a woven
geotextile can be integrated into the matrix of Se-
cutex to distribute dynamic loads and thus aug-
ment its protective abilities.
Secutex is safe
Secutex is recognised for its long-term filter sta-
bility and sepa ration performance. Its elongation
properties are extremely high such that a high re-
sistance to impacts and push-through loads is
achieved. For protection applications, Secu tex en-
sures the necessary factors of safety when manu-
factured with sufficient thickness. The mechanical
properties of Secutex - elongation, abrasion resi-
stance, plunger puncture resistance (CBR), and its
overall robustness - and our many years of experi-

Secutex is economical
Secutex reduces the requirements for fill materials
and there fore the amount of excavation required to
achieve a given profile. Signifi cant savings are rea-
lised not only on construction costs but also on
maintenance costs. Secutex offers lower construc-
tion costs, lower follow-up costs, and higher per-
formance.
Secutex is simple
Secutex can be handled and installed on site with
little diffi culty. Rolls are simply deployed on site;
no special equipment is required.
Conclusion:
When compared to conventional construction me-
thods, Secutex makes the grade. Its high elonga-
tion capacity and robustness make Secutex
extremely durable. Secutex reduces construction
and main tenance costs and has
numerous fields of applications.

Bentofix is multifunctional
Bentofix is an extremely versatile clay-based lining
product. Once hy dra ted, Bentofix is an effective bar-
rier against liquids, vapours, and gases. With near-
ly two decades of suc cessful installations, the ran-
ge of Bentofix applications is virtually limitless:
waste and contaminated soil caps; landfill base li-
ners; gas and vapour seals; sur face impoundment li-
ners; secon dary containment; dams, canals, and wa-
ter courses; tailings containment; groundwater pro-
tection; sorptive barriers; vertical barriers; water-
proofing.
Bentofix is safe
Strong and durable nonwoven geotextiles encapsu-
late and protect the layer of sodium bentonite en-
suring its long-term performance. And since Bento-
fix contains highest quality sodium bentonite, an
imme diate swelling following installation is ensured
to safely self-seal any unex pected mechanical da-
mages. Because of its immense elongation capaci-
ty, Bentofix shows a long-term adjustment to earth
deformations, such as differential settlements.
Steep slope applications are easily accommodated by
Bentofix. A unique fibre-bonding process locks the
needle-punched fibres into place creating high in-
ternal shear strength with unsurpassed creep resi-
stance. Bentofix also addresses the often critical
issue of interface friction angles. The mechanically
bonded nonwoven geotextiles provide the shear re-
sistance necessary for even the most demanding ap-
plications. This fibre reinforcement also prevents la-
teral migration of the bentonite. Bentofix is cle-
arly superior to conventional compacted clay liners.
Bentofix GCLs are certified by government regula-
tors.
naue_image_05_2009_EN:_ 03.09.2009 11:21 Seite 12
Bentofix is economical
Bentofix provides both economical and environ-
mental advantages. Since Bentofix is equivalent to
multiple lifts of compacted clay, it thereby increa-
ses the potential containment volume in landfills,
yielding additional revenues from tipping fees.
Bentofix instal lation is quick and easy; it is sim-
ply unrolled on site and overlapped at the joints. From
a logistical point of view, the advantages of Bento-
fix are also easy to see: one truckload of Bentofix
covers 4,000 m compared with only 40m (50 cm
thick) for a load of clay.
Bentofix is simple
Field testing and sampling from completed clay-co-
vered areas are a thing of the past with Bentofix.
The manu facture and quality control laboratory pro-
gramme of Bentofix means it arrives on site with
the necessary test results, ready for installation. Com-
paction and moisture content testing are also eli-
minated with Bentofix. Unroll and cover is the
motto of Bentofix installations.
There is no easier way to do
it.
Conclusion:
Bentofix is a robust, versatile product that provi-
des the highest safety standards and cost efficien-
cy available. Bentofix is unrivalled when it comes
to project logistics, too. Choosing Bentofix will re-
duce construction costs and time, while also pre-
serving our natural environment.

Secudrain is multifunctional
Secudrain is used extensively to drain water or gas
in various applications. In landfill engineering, Se-
cudrain serves three functions at once (filtration,
protection and drainage) when installed directly abo-
ve a geomembrane. The ability of Secudrain to pas-
sively relieve water pressure makes it ideal for drai-
nage over buried structures and for road-edge strip-
drain applications. The fil ter geotextiles and the drai-
nage core can be efficiently dimensioned to meet the
required drainage capa city. Secudrain is also used
success fully as a drainage layer in the construction
of buildings, tunnels and roofs.
Secudrain is safe
Secudrain is properly dimen sioned durable and ro-
bust; it handles mechanical loads with ease. It is re-
sistant to all naturally occurring chemical and bio-
logical factors in the soil. The needle-punched non-
wovens long-term filter efficiency allows for safe de-
sign of passive drainage and thus ensures the sys -
tems longevity. The use of needle-punched non wo-
vens leads to a high interfacial friction angle, espe-
cially important on steep slopes. The regular bon-
ding between the geotextile and drainage core en-
sures transmission of shearing forces through the Se-
cudrain system.

naue_image_05_2009_EN:_ 03.09.2009 11:21 Seite 14
Secudrain is economical
Since the filter, drainage, and protection layer
comprise one unit, Secudrain can be installed ra-
pidly. The use of Secudrain in earth construction
requires less excava tion of in-situ material and, in
the case of a landfill liner, the containment vo lume
is increased. Using Secudrain saves time and na-
tural resources since 10,000 m of the Secudrain sy-
stem can replace the extraction, transport, and in-
stallation of approximately 3,000 m of granular drai-
nage ma terial. Secudrain keeps your costs lower than
conventional me thods.
Secudrain is simple
One or two people can carry and unroll the light-
weight rolls of Secudrain without problem and it can
be installed in most weather conditions. Complica-
ted connections are easy with Secudrain and it rea-
dily fits to the contours of the job site.
Conclusion:
Secudrain excels by its versatility. The installation
is simple and straightforward. Secudrain is ex tremely
resistant to environmental factors and its use saves
natural resources.

Secumat is multifunctional
Secumat erosion control mats are used for slope
and ground protection in road building, landsca-
ping, and landfill engineering works. Water ways en-
gineering works employ Secumat on flood plains
and embankments. Properly dimensioned it prevents
the sliding and washing out of the soil and cover
layer while facilitating rapid vegetation growth.
Upon heavy rains and water flows, the reinforcing
ability of Secumat prevents erosion of the other-
wise vulnerable vegetation. Once vege tated, Secu-
mat reduces runoff velocities and thereby
increases infiltration and reduces discharge. Directly
next to water courses, Secumat protects the banks
from the scouring action of water flow.
Secumat is safe
The open structure of Secumat allows soil filling
over its entire area and depth. Secumat thus re-
tains surface water and prevents erosion. Root de-
velopment is supported by the three-dimensional
structure of Secumat adding to the strength of the
vegetative protection. It is resistant to all natural
chemical or biological substances present in the soil
and is also extremely resistant to UV radiation. The
effec tiveness of Secumat is ensured for long-term
applications.

naue_image_05_2009_EN:_ 03.09.2009 11:22 Seite 16
Secumat is economical
The light Secumat rolls enable a rapid and inex-
pensive installation. They can be filled precisely
using a minimum quantity of soil. The Secumat sy-
stem can be deployed even on steep slopes stabili-
sing otherwise expensive to repair erosion-prone
areas.
Secumat is simple
Directly following installation, Secumat is fully
functional. In steep slope areas Secumat can be
secured with staples or pegs. Once the open struc-
ture has been filled with topsoil, vegetation takes
hold. Secumat is also easy to handle and store on
site.
Conclusion:
Secumat is resistant to environmental influences
and supports the development of roots extremely
well. Wherever Secumat is used, a rapid installa-
tion and a speedy vegetation of the slopes are en-
sured. With the correct input parameters, Secumat
will elimi nate erosion from even the most deman-
ding sites.

Secugrid
is a structurally sound and stable geogrid for soil reinforcement, manufactured of extruded
and drawn bars, laid and welded solid together.
Secugrid is multifunctional
Secugrid geogrids provide tensile reinforcement for
base courses in railway and highway foundation
engineering, steep sided soil em bank ments and re-
taining walls, foundation reinforcement of earth
embankments, load transfer of overlying soil mas-
ses, spanning voids and sink holes, sludge lagoon
closures, trench covers and beds. With the available
tensile strengths Secugrid is suitable for the most
demanding projects. In addition to our standard
geogrid products, we also manufacture Combigrid
- a high strength compo site product comprising a
geogrid and nonwoven geotextile.
Secugrid is safe
Secugrid geogrids are superior soil reinforcement
elements because they resist service tensile force
loading with very low elongation. This results in an
immediate force connection and interlocking with
the fill soil without primary deformation. The mo-
nolithic flat polymer bars used to make Secugrid
are extremely robust and have excellent chemical re-
sistance. Secugrid is manufactured under the EN
ISO 9001 : 2000 regime, ensuring its uniformity and
high quality. It has passed the inspection of nu-
merous recognised materials testing institutes and
has been approved by the Federal Railway Agency
for use in earth structures for railway engineering.

naue_image_05_2009_EN:_ 03.09.2009 11:22 Seite 18
Secugrid is economical
Engineering system solutions using Secugrid geo-
grids can save natural mineral resources by reducing
base course thickness for pavements. For this ap-
plication a calculation disk can be requested to de-
termine the right Secugrid type. As Secugrid is
easy to handle, large quantities can be installed
quickly with minimal demand on labour resources
and lower installation costs.
Secugrid is simple
Secugrid can be installed during virtually all we-
ather conditions without heavy equipment or spe-
cial construction techniques. Panels are joined and
continuity is assured with simple overlaps. Standard
cutting tools can be used for on-site trimming, and
for steep sided slopes, various geometrical shapes
can be formed where needed to best fit the location.
Conclusion:
The Secugrid geogrid products are extremely robust
and easily in stalled, providing an economical alter-
native solution to traditional construction methods.
The wide range of products, including both uniaxial
and biaxial (R and Q type) geogrids, makes Secu -
grid an ideal structural component in practically all
fields of civil and environmental engineering. These
high-perfor mance, low cost products provide simple,
cost effective soil reinforcement, by strengthening
naturally unstable soil and subsoil to withstand the
loading conditions imposed by modern engineering
demands.

Combigrid is multifunctional
Combigrid combines all the re quirements of a va-
riety of properties in one single product. For this
reason, the main area of use for Combigrid is on
weak subsoils where, in addition to reinforcement,
filter and separating properties are required. As a
rule, this means subsoils with a CBR value of less
than 3 %. Thus, the areas of application for Combi-
grid are to be found in the reinforcement of base
courses, foundations, access roads, pipeline tren-
ches and throughout the road building sector. The
range of products available incorporates different
degrees of tensile strength and nonwoven compo-
nents and covers a variety of applications. Combi-
grid is thus an all-purpose product for universal
applications.
Combigrid is safe
It is available in polypropylene (PP) or in polyester
(PET), depen ding on project requirements. It is
suitable for the use in all natural environments.
Combigrid geogrids are superior soil reinforcement
elements because they resist service tensile force
loading with very low elon gation. This results in an
immediate force connection and inter locking with
the fill soil without primary de formation. The mo-
nolithic flat polymer bars used to make Combigrid
are extremely robust and have excellent chemical
resistance, as well as an extremely good wea ther re-
sistance as shown in the Global UV test. The Secu-
tex sepa rating, nonwoven geotextile which is
firmly integrated be tween the reinforcing bars fea-
tures efficient long-term filter stability and high ro-
bustness, reasons why Combi grid geogrids have
been approved by the Federal Railway Office for use
in earthworks for railway constructions. An excel-
lent example of two single high-quality components
combined in one product - Combigrid.

Combigrid is economical
Combigrid is extremely quick and easy to install,
thus reducing installa tion costs considerably. Sy-
stem solutions using Combigrid can reduce the
thickness of the base course of roads and often
avoid the necessity to replace weak subsoils thus
conserving resources and economising costs. For
the reinforcement of the bearing layer, a calcu lation
disk can be requested to determine the right Com-
bigrid/Secugrid type.
Combigrid is simple
Combigrid can be installed during virtually all we-
ather con ditions with out heavy equipment or spe-
cial construction techniques. Panels are joined and
continuity is assured with simple overlaps. Stan-
dard cutting tools can be used for on-site trim ming,
and for steep slopes various eometrical shapes can
be formed where necessary.
Conclusion:
Combigrid is an all-purpose composite product
suitable for use in a variety of reinforcement, se-
paration and filtration applications. Combi grid is
extremely robust, resistant and durable allowing a
cost-efficient alternative to other construction me-
thods in all sectors of civil and environmental en-
gineering. Combi grid provides the user with a
technically sophisticated product to fulfil the re-
quirements in even the most unusual projects.
