Bontec® PhormiRoot Plus

High quality needle punched nonwoven and a high density polyethylene film. 

Bontec® PhormiRoot Plus is a one-of-a-kind product within the BontexGeo range, consisting of a superior high quality needle punched, lightly thermally bonded nonwoven geotextile and a strong high density polyethylene film. This combination offers very good protection against root penetration in a large variety of situations. 

Through the combination of a nonwoven geotextile with superior puncture resistance and a heavy duty impregnable polyethylene film, PhormiRoot Plus creates an impermeable barrier. This provides a solution for users who need to control up to which point roots are allowed to grow.

Even the growth path of more aggressive plants, such as bamboo, can be easily controlled.
