Elastocoast®: Polyurethane for Coastal Protection

Revetments with Elastocoast® are a new and innovative coastal protection system. The term Elastocoast® means a bonding system that reinforces hydraulic gravel at their contact surfaces permanently by means of the 2-component plastic polyurethane (PU).

Eco-efficiency analysis was used to asses a 20000 m2 coastal protection project: Elastocoast® was compared with traditional coastal protection methods such as concrete and Open Stone Asphalt (O.S.A.).

The eco-efficiency portfolio shows: Elastocoast® is the most eco-efficient alternative.
