Innovative technology in coastal defense
Revetments with BASF Elastocoast® represent a new and innovative coastal protection system.
Elastocoast is a bonding system that reinforces hydraulic gravel at their contact surfaces permanently by means of the two-component plastic polyurethane. These porous coverings protect dikes by absorbing the force of breaking waves and slow down the water masses, preserving coastlines for years to come.
Due to the high porosity cavities it provides additional habitat for animals and plants. Also the Elastocoast revetments easily integrate into the overall appearance of the landscape. Due to the transparency of the material, it is difficult to set them apart from naturally colored riprap.
