Bidim®

Our core product, bidim is a continuous filament nonwoven needle-punched geotextile. It is manufactured of 100% recycled polyester from discarded cool-drink bottles. Its versatility sees it used in various applications from erosion control against tidal action, to reinforcing earth retaining structures, to separation in railway applications, to subsoil drainage in roads and homes, to liner protection in raw water dams, and more.  Made in South Africa.

Bidim® Flashpack®

Convenient bidim® Flashpack® is for domestic use in the house and garden.  It separates, filters, and drains.

  • In small ponds, bidim® is used as a waterproofing membrane.
  • In gravel paths, bidim® prevents natural soil from mixing with the sand or gravel and reduces maintenance.
  • In-play area sandpits, bidim® prevents the natural soil from mixing with the silica sand and reduces maintenance.
  • In window boxes, bidim® separates the drainage course from the topsoil and prevents particles from entering the outlet system.
  • In drainage, bidim® envelops the drain trench and improves the efficiency of the drain by holding back the fine soil particles.
  • In paving, bidim® ensures correct drainage and prevents subsidence.

Concrete Canvas™

Concrete Canvas is part of a class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. It is used in concrete channel lining, slope protection, bund lining, remediation of existing concrete structures, and culvert lining.

Dimplecore

Dimplecore is a durable, heat-formed, cuspated synthetic sheet used in drainage applications. The structure of the symmetrical cusps resists the effects of lateral shear which may adversely affect alternative ‘pillar type’ drainage cores. The flat reverse side and top ensure low contact pressure and therefore prevents the creation of point loads. This is significant when Dimplecore is placed between or over waterproof lining systems.

Dimplecore is successfully used:

  • As a leakage detection membrane is double-lined storage facilities
  • For relief of hydraulic pressure build-up against structures
  • To prevent moisture ingress into dwellings
  • As the drainage medium over waterproofing membranes in roof waterproofing applications
  • As a damp-proof lining to surface beds in basements
  • In cut-off drains
  • As hydraulic pressure relief over earth-sheltered structures
  • As a damp-proof course for brickwork
  • In drainage systems for the canalisation of rain, stormwater, and underground water
  • As underfloor drainage and pressure relief in high water table conditions for geomembrane-lined or concrete structures
  • For gas relief in coping mechanisms
  • In drainage of coping mechanisms

 

Dimpledrain is a geocomposite drainage core. It’s made up of a durable, heat-formed, cuspated synthetic sheet that is bonded on the cusp side, to a nonwoven bidim filter/separator layer to form a drainage core.

The structure of the symmetrical cusps, resists the effects of lateral shear which may adversely affect alternative ‘pillar type’ drainage cores. The flat reverse side and top ensure low contact pressure and therefore prevents the creation of point loads. The bidim layer acts as a filtration layer …. This is significant when Dimpledrain is placed between or over waterproof lining systems.

Enviromat®

Enviromat® is a locally produced and biodegradable erosion control blanket made from wood wool extracted from the alien Poplar tree. Used to combat soil erosion on exposed slopes, it stimulates vegetative growth while protecting topsoil and germinating seeds from the elements.

Sealmac® For Dams

Sealmac® is a nonwoven, spun-bonded, continuous filament, double needle-punched, polyester geotextile.

The Sealmac® Dam Lining System involves the saturation of Sealmac® with a special elastomeric bitumen product to produce an impermeable membrane.  Numerous farm and municipal oxidation dams have also been successfully installed with this system since 1980.

TenCate Geotube

Geotube® is one of the most versatile sludge dewatering systems available.  Volume reduction can be as much as 90% with high solid levels that make removal and disposal easy.  No belts or gears required.  Geotube® is available in various sizes depending on your sludge volume and available space.

Geotube® can be used for sludge dewatering in:

 

    • environmental remediation,
    • pulp and paper mills,
    • mining and mineral processing,
    • power generation by-products like fly ash
    • waste water treatment works
    • light industrial applications
    • animal waste and agricultural process sludges
    • aquaculture such as re-circulation waste removal for hatcheries

RockGrid®

RockGrid® PC is a high-strength, composite geotextile offering high modulus characteristics for reinforcement and minimum deformation. As such, RockGrid® PC is successfully used:

  •  In high embankment fills and on steep slopes in waste landfills,
  • as basal reinforcement beneath road embankments or load platforms over weak ground or underlying voids

Rockgrid PC for basal reinforcement or wrap around walls or landfill capping

EnviroRock®

The EnviroRock® containers are extremely robust and are designed to be filled with sand, soil, gravel, recycled material, treated materials, or a combination thereof to form a stable, durable container.  These containers are manufactured using the patented 3PL, Envirotex, Georevet, or bidim depending on the requirements of the application.

The versatility and durability of EnviroRock® containers provide solutions to structures such as groynes, walls, reef structures and other applications for marine and inland waterway structures.

EnviroFix®

A proudly South African manufactured GCL (geosynthetic clay liner) for lining water and waste containment sites. EnviroFix® is produced by needle-punching a uniform layer of sodium bentonite between two layers of geotextile. Using a proprietary heat-treating process – Thermal Lock™ – the needle punched fibres are modified and more permanently locked into place. EnviroFix® has combined properties of low permeability and high internal shear strength making it a versatile hydraulic barrier.
