Erosion Control 


With rising water levels and increasing storm intensity, resilient construction solutions are vital. BASF innovative materials are effective solutions for water management, erosion control, and slope protection. Elastopor® soil stabilizers bind loose soils to strengthen and prevent settlement. Elastotite® ROCK GLUE is an open-pored revetment solution that maintains structural integrity and can be used in a variety of applications including drainage channels, rain gardens, culverts, shorelines, rivers, railroad beds, and other embankments.

Rail Infrastructure

BASF materials are cruicial elements of rail fastening systems. Elastollan® thermoplastic polyurethane exhibits extraordinarily compression set, superior abrasion resistance, and outstanding damping properties. Ultramid nylon grades offer processing advantages and reliable performance for abrasion plate and isolaters. 

For erosion control and railbed drainage, Elastotite ROCK GLUE is an open-pored revetment solution that maintains structural integrity.
