TURF REINFORCEMENT MATRIX (TRM) AND EROSION CONTROL REVEGETATION MATRIX (ECRM)     

Tenax MULTIMATTM 100 is a three dimensional structure formed by mechanically securing two high strength, high modulus biaxially oriented nets above and below a corrugated center netting. The thrre layers of netting are secured with multiple rows of polypropylene stitching. This creates a porous, thick and resilient structure that is extremely resistant to deformation and damage during installation, yet flexible enough to provide the intimate contact between the soil and the geosynthetic matrix that is necessary to prevent undercutting and uplift. Used as a TRM or ECRM, Tenax MULTIMATTM 100 provides long-term stability and performance since it is manufactured from select UV stabilized polypropylene that is resistant to chemical and biological breakdown. Additionally, MULTIMATTM 100 will not absorb moisture, which would rob the soil and inhibit the establishment of vegetation.

Typical applications: landfill cover/steep slope protection/turf reinforcement/channel lining systems
