Selected advantages of Bentofix®
Bentofix. Thermal Lock replaces other geosynthetic clay liners as well as other soil barriers on steep side slopes and assures low permeability without sacrificing slope stability. Explanation: Bentofix. is uniformly needle-punched with over 2 million fibres/m2. This results in a uniform, directionally-independent shear stress transfer. Thermal Lock additionaly improves the pull-out resistance and the interface friction.
Bentofix® acts immediatetly as a sealing element. The explanation: high-swelling bentonite powder, uniformly distributed bentonite powder, large bentonite swelling surface and smaller air voids to close.
Bentofix® geosynthetic clay liners utilises the advantages of three high-performance components in one geocomposite:
(1) The nonwoven protects against installation stress and increases the interface friction performance.
(2) The bentonite powder acts as an immediate barrier.
(3) The slit-film woven gives the product the dimension stability and makes the product stable for installation handling. The result of this trio, combined with the needle-punching and Thermal Lock: a durable, low-permeable sealing system.
