Products and Services


Bentofix® is a needle-punched reinforced geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) with two geotextile layers encapsulating a layer of sodium bentonite for sealing applications. Bentofix® “X” types are needlepunched GCLs where the woven fabric is coated with a low permeability and gas-tight polyolefin coating to achieve an immeadiate barrier prior to hydration.


Carbofol® is a chemical resistant geomembrane with smooth of structure-embossed surface for sealing applications.

Combigrid® – Combigrid® is a composite product of a Secugrid® geogrid, with a needle-punched Secutex® nonwoven geotextile firmly welded between the reinforcement bars, for soil stabilisation, separation and filtration applications.

Secugrid® – Secugrid® is a structurally sound and stable geogrid for soil reinforcement, manufactured of extruded and drawn bars, flat and welded solidly together.

Secudrain® – Secudrain® is a three-dimensional composite product, consisting of a drainage core and firmly attached filter nonwoven geotextiles for drainage applications.

Secumat® – Secumat® is a three-dimensional erosion control mat with a labyrinth-like synthetic core.

Secutex® – Secutex® is a needle-punched staple fibre nonwoven geotextile, some products additionally calendered, used for separation, filtration, protection and drainage.

Terrafix® – Terrafix® is a single- or multi-layer, needle-punched nonwoven for separation, filtration, protection and sand container applications.

m3 – NAUE m3 is a Secugrid® reinforced slope and retaining wall system. Multiple material combinations and designs (Clamp, Wrap, Nail, Gabion, Block, Panel, Steel T, Steel P) give the designer a huge array of options for slopes and wall configurations, angles, and aesthetics.
