Elastocoast® — Making our Coasts and Rivers Safer

Elastocoast® is a novel, intelligent polyurethane system. It is a two-component binder for revetments in coastal areas and stabilization of river banks. It is so open-pored that it deprives wave run-up of its destructive energy, thus demonstrating its strength to make shorelines and river beds substantially safer. 

An ideal revetment solution for coastal protection, Elastocoast® can also be used to restore ecology of rivers and weirs.

Benefits

The Advantages of Elastocoast® for Coastal Protection and River Bank Stabilization

  • Makes coasts safer
  • Porous and water-permeable
  • Reduces the cost of construction and maintenance
  • Absorbs the energy of impacting waves
  • Environmentally sound
  • Strong and with a long track record

While protecting the coasts from floods and slowing the rate of soil erosion, the open-pored structure also provides favorable conditions for restoration of the habitat’s flora and fauna.

Coastal and Flood Protection with an Intelligent PU System

Whereas conventional technology contains rigid concrete structures that can be broken down by wave impact, frost and ground subsidence, the Elastocoast® system involves the mechanical bonding of an aggregate (crushed rock or gravel) bonded with an environmentally compatible 2-component polyurethane plastic.

Elastocoast® technology

• The porous structure between the stones withstands heavy wave impact.

• The cover layer also offers a habitat for flora and fauna.

Elastopave®

Elastopave® exploits the principle of binding stones with polyurethane to yield a strong, water- and air-permeable surface. The stone mix can be flexibly varied to blend into the immediate surroundings. Also, it is easy to process. The bottom line is real benefits in design, attractiveness, longevity and eco-friendliness.
