Staple fibre geotextiles designed for coastal protection and landfill applications
ELCOMAX® staple fibre geotextiles were developed to protect landfill systems and stabilise coastal structures. These geotextiles allow engineers to specify the mechanical and hydraulic criteria to suit tough Australian conditions.
Why choose ELCOMAX® staple fibre geotextiles?
ELCOMAX® geotextiles have a proven performance record in erosion prevention, supported by 25 years of research and testing. They are abrasion and UV-resistant and provide superior filtration in coastal applications.
ELCOMAX® also has a high elongation which helps minimise installation damage.

How ELCOMAX® staple fibre geotextiles works?
Channel and bank protection
ELCOMAX® geotextiles are an ideal solution for the increasing hydraulic demands placed on revetment systems used to control coastal erosion and unstable soil conditions. ELCOMAX® offers more advanced protection even under tough Australian conditions.
Shoreline & coastal protection works
ELCOMAX® staple fibre geotextiles have been used on some of Australia’s most demanding coastal projects since the 1970s. It is one of the most effective soft solutions for coastal erosion protection.
Landfill liner protection
Heavyweight ELCOMAX® geotextiles have a unique staple fibre blend and an inbuilt flexibility designed to protect geomembrane or geocomposite liners in landfill systems.
Sand containment structures
ELCOMAX® geotextiles are used in the manufacture of geocontainers of up to 300 tonnes in mass. These containers are successfully used in sea walls, groynes, artificial reefs and emergency containment. Their development has led to the formation of artificial reefs for beach erosion protection, encouragement of sea-life habitat and surf improvement.
