The EnkaDrain product family consists of a range of drainage composites comprising a polymer drainage core connected to a protective and filtering nonwoven on one or both sides. EnkaDrain can be used in a variety of horizontal and vertical applications, combining drainage, protection and filtration in one product.

EnkaDrain’s extensive range includes a large number of product types, each having properties tailored for specific applications. Although the primary application is drainage, some EnkaDrain types have also proven themselves as a cost-effective vibration control layer, as well as for hydrostatic pressure relief.

Technical details

EnkaDrain is a range of drainage composites that consist of a polymer drainage core which is thermally bonded or spot welded to a protective and separating nonwoven filter on one or both sides. The core can be v-shaped or consisting of looped filaments fused where they cross. Properties regarding stiffness, discharge capacity or tensile strength vary per product type, as do the properties of the fleece.

Thickness varies between 4 and 22 mm. The standard EnkaDrain is available in rolls of 1 and 2 m width. The range includes fire retardant types.

Technical datasheets with full details are available on request. Information about specialist EnkaDrain types such as EnkaDrain CK or EnkaDrain Wide for landfills is available on other relevant product leaflets.
