Properties & advantages
Since 1992 a number of renowned independent institutes in several European countries have carried out extensive research into Trisoplast under supervision of the relevant federal and local authorities. Several field studies after many years of installation were carried out. 
The results showed that Trisoplast has significantly better barrier properties in comparison with traditional mineral barriers. Traditional clay barriers might develop harmful cracks as a result of differential settlement or desiccation. With Trisoplast, these negative effects are effectively prevented due to its high plasticity and chewing-gum like behaviour. 
The mechanical properties, especially the high friction angles in combination with significant cohesion values, make it possible to design steeper slopes without additional reinforcement. Moreover, this possibility, together with significantly reduced thickness, results in additional, valuable void space. The polymer enhancement in Trisoplast leads to a higher chemical stability compared to other bentonite based systems and an improved sealing performance.
 
Main advantages Trisoplast offers:
  • Extremely low permeability
  • Self-Healing ability
  • Ability to cope with differential settlement due to high flexibility
  • Lower use of raw materials and consequently less transport capacity required
  • Easy and safe sealing to constructions
  • Installation by conventional machinery
  • Gel formation prevents washing out
  • High chemical and physical stability
  • Moisture retention capability (high resistance to drying out)
  • High resistance to wet/dry and frost/thaw cycles
  • Gain of volume due to reduced layer thickness
  • Low gas permeability
  • High lifetime expectancy due to durability
  • Cost effective high level of environmental protection
  • High slope stability and bearing capacity
  • Easy to use
