Trisoplast’s roots are in the environmental sector. From the very beginning, it was used as a mineral bottom liner for landfills and remediation sites. The mining industry, too, was quick to adopt this product. More than 90 percent of Dutch landfills are now using Trisoplast, and our share of the global market is growing steadily.
Landfills and remediation sites emit a wide range of pollutants. The same applies to the storage of building materials in the mining industry. It is important to use a tough solution with effective isolation properties, to pre-vent these substances leaking into the soil, the air and the groundwater. Trisoplast prevents the further contam-ination of existing sites, thus contributing to greater sustainability and a cleaner environment.
Trisoplast owes its exceptional performance to its special clay-polymer component that is mixed with sand, on-site, and then installed. When water is added, the bentonite clay swells up and forms a matrix of chemical bonds with the polymer. This creates a strong, cohesive gel structure with considerably better isolating properties than traditional mineral liner materials. The mixture is also easy to apply. Even at relatively inaccessible locations and mining sites.
