Resolve underwater scour issues with HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete scour protection mattresses.

The best solution for localized scour underwater and on land, HYDROTEX provides superior protection against harsh hydraulic forces under the sea.

How? The geosynthetic panels are laid out underwater at berths, ports, and harbors, then pumped with fine aggregate concrete. The result is a fabric-formed concrete mat that conforms to the scour depth around pier piles, on embankments, and under any marine structure.

How is HYDROTEX used in sediment capping projects?

The Problem

Contaminated sediment is a pervasive problem in industrialized shoreline environments. In the earlier years of the Industrial Revolution, industries located along waterways were less concerned with releasing what we’ve now learned to be toxic substances. To protect the future of our waterways and prevent an environmental disaster, you must install a sediment capping system.

The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete

Protect vulnerable waterways by using HYDROTEX fabric forms to cast a permanent concrete mattress over filtration media such as organophilic mats or sand layers. Our mat protects the filtration media from damage caused by waves, currents, dredging operations, and objects such as rocks, stumps, and boat anchors.

Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings

Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings


Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings are similar to traditional concrete slope paving.  They create a solid, high-quality concrete lining with a relatively low hydraulic resistance and uniform cross-section.  Uniform Section linings are used to reduce the infiltration or exfiltration of aggressive waste and chemical fluids into or out of open channels and basins.  They are also used to reduce exfiltration in arid regions where open channels and basins require watertight linings.

Uniform Section Concrete Linings are resistant to leachate and most chemicals.  They protect geosynthetic liners from mechanical damage, exposure to UV light, and freeze-thaw cycles.  These self-supporting, high-strength linings permit construction on steep side slopes and replace the conventional use of clay or sand as liner protection. Placement of the forms and concrete filling can be performed without the use of equipment on the liner.  The tensile strength and abrasion resistance of the fabric protect the liner from the pumped concrete.

Articulating Block (AB) Concrete Linings


Articulating Block Mats form cable-reinforced concrete block mattresses that resist erosive forces. They are often constructed where a revetment is exposed to frontal attack by wave action.

AB Mats are typically used to protect coastlines, canals, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, underwater pipelines, bridge piers, and other marine structures from propeller wash, ship wakes, wind waves, currents, and high velocity flows. They are also used in environmental construction for landfill caps, down chutes, and collector channels.

The AB fabric form consists of a series of compartments linked by an interwoven perimeter. Grout ducts interconnect the compartments, and high-strength revetment cables are installed between and through the compartments and grout ducts.

Once filled, the AB Mats become a mattress of pillow-shaped, rectangular concrete blocks. The interwoven perimeters between the blocks serve as hinges to permit articulation. The cables remain embedded in the concrete blocks to link the blocks together and facilitate articulation.
