Applications enabled by this product

Dewatering of Fly Ash

Dewatering tubes provide a more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable technology for containing and treating fly ash or pulverized fuel ash (PFA) from the combustion process in power stations.

Drainage For Earth Retaining Structures And Bridge Abutments

Enkadrain geocomposite drainage layers instead of a granular fill offers a variety of benefits, including preventing water build-up behind conventional retaining structures and bridge abutments, so reducing damage.

Vibration Damping

Innovative and cost-effective vibration damping solutions to reduce vibrations transmitted through soil and concrete to adjacent structures from road, trains, trams and construction traffic.

Technical details
  • Enkadrain is a range of drainage composites that consist of a polymer drainage core which is thermally bonded or spot welded to a protective and separating nonwoven filter on one or both sides.
  • The core can be v-shaped or consisting of looped filaments fused where they cross.
  • Properties regarding stiffness, discharge capacity or tensile strength vary per product type, as do the properties of the fleece.
  • Thickness varies between 4 and 22mm.
  • The standard Enkadrain is available in rolls of       1 and 2m width.
  • The range includes fire retardant types.
