The Trisoplast mixture, which has a rather dry and soil-like structure, is usually prepared in a mobile forced action mixer. The mixture can then be installed, ideally with a hydraulic excavator. But what if Trisoplast needs to be applied to smaller surfaces or in poorly accessible locations? Then it can be installed manually. Light and medium-weight compaction rollers or a vibration plate can be used to ensure sufficient compaction.
Using an excavator, we spread the Trisoplast mixture in strips of any desired width. The ideal equipment for large surfaces is a crane with a long boom and a wide bucket. Strips up to 5 to 10 metres in width can be creat-ed in this way. When using geotextile (cloth) or geomembrane (film) as a covering layer, we modify the layer to conform to the width of the covering material. By laying a steel reference beam down the side of the strip, we can ensure that the correct thickness of Trisoplast is applied. In addition, while installation is in progress, we constantly check the thickness of the uncompacted layer using a measuring rod or by pushing a special shovel down through this layer.
The layer is compacted using a light compaction roller (weighing about 2 to 5 tons, depending on availability and on the stability of the substrate), a small or medium-sized vibration plate, or a drum roller fitted to an exca-vator (ideal for steep slopes or unstable substrates). If you are working at a poorly accessible site (between, under, or against obstacles, for example) then smaller vibration plates or manual rammers might be the best solution.
We carry out meticulous quality control checks throughout the entire production process. Based on clear Triso-plast protocols that are open to inspection, these involve continuously monitoring and safeguarding the quality of the raw materials, of the production process and of the installation.
