VIDEO: Elastocoast System Introduced
- Business & Finance
BASF, a German chemical company, has just released a video about Elastocoast®, an innovative and sustainable system to protect coastal dykes, shores and river beds.
The term Elastocoast means a bonding system that reinforces hydraulic gravel at their contact surfaces permanently by means of the 2-component plastic polyurethane (PU).
Elastocoast’s open-pore structure reduces the destructive force of high tides right from the start.
The revetment as a whole is subjected to less stressing, thus allowing to make dykes safer without their having to be continually raised.
Elastocoast is a sustainable solution for coastal protection as wildlife and plants start to return shortly after application of the material.
