Biodegradable nonwoven: Secutex® Green
Secutex® Green 100% biodegradable, mechanically bonded nonwoven
Due to its certified biodegradability, residues of the product do not harm the environment. Secutex® Green is UV-resistant. The nonwoven can therefore be used in uncovered applications.
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in all aspects of our daily life. Geotechnical solutions have been contributing to more sustainability in the construction industry for a long time already. Our Naue GreenLine is taking it one step further by focusing exclusively on biodegradable products.
Reduced transport emissions and improved CO2 balance.
Certified degradability both in industrial and home composting as well as under suitable conditions in the environment.
Renewable raw materials
Use of exclusively organic, natural and renewable raw materials.
Processing of the organic nonwoven geotextile by soil organisms, microorganisms and fungi.
Typical solutions with Secutex® Green
- Remaining onsite or composting after renaturation
- No entry of plastic into the environment during installation, operation or renaturation
Advantages of Secutex® Green
Secutex® Green is suitable for all applications where a temporary solution is required.
Expected service life
The range of applications and the maintenance of the function depend on the site factors such as soil, water and climate conditions of the respective project. As a rule, a service life of three years can be assumed. The product-specific service life depends largely on the biological activity of the environment.
Geotextile robustness classes
The industrial production of the fibres and the constant needling process ensure a continuous and reproducible quality of the nonwoven. Therefore, it can be assigned to one of the geotextile robustness classes GRK (according to the leaflet on the use of geosynthetics in earthworks for road construction). Secutex® Green is available in the robustness classes GRK 2 to GRK 5 and in widths of 2m, 4m and 6m.
