Toughness made in Canada.
FILCOTEN® passes North American material testing.
Canada is a country of meteorological extremes. After all, its climate ranges from moderate to subarctic (long, cold winters and short, warm summers) to polar conditions.
Overcoming challenging conditions
Especially challenging environments show that FILCOTEN® is the ideal material for drainage channels: Even at extreme temperature fluctuations, it remains stable without loss of material. Combined with the excellent adhesion of a cement-bound mineral material, there is no infiltration of water between the outer walls of the channel and the surrounding concrete.
This is where channel bodies made from plastic or polymeric materials often hit the wall. Their coefficient of expansion is different to the coefficient of the concrete in the surrounding foundation. This may cause cracks and gaps between the channel body and the concrete surface. Possible negative consequences may include infiltration at the transition between the channel/foundation and the element piles, as well as resulting frost damage with raising and sagging inside the channel line.
no changing of the channel body shape even at extreme temperature fluctuations
no loss of material
excellent adhesion to the concrete bedding
no infiltration of water
maximum drainage performance
And these are not even all of the benefits of our FILCOTEN® Drainage Systems. We are happy to provide you with information on the entire service portfolio. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org further information or individual consulting.
