TenCate Polyfelt® TM13C High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM)

TenCate Polyfelt® TM13C High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat is a biaxial high strength, 3-dimensional, synthetic erosion control mat that is woven from heavily UV-stabilized polypropylene yarns using a patented technology that creates a random 3-D pattern. The technological design produces “inner pockets” that provides soil retention and reinforcement to the grass root structure for vegetation growth.

Why Polyfelt® TM13C?

Polyfelt® TM13C remains the premier solution for surficial erosion control outperforming typical turf reinforcement mats and biodegradable erosion control mats by a wide margin. Polyfelt® TM13C offers excellent protection performance from the initial stages of installation prior to vegetation growth, right through to the final turf growth phases. This is established with a full-scale performance testing at independent laboratories.

        Benefits of Polyfelt® TM13C High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats: 

        • Blends with the environment with an instant green "turfed over" effect
        • Outstanding performance over typical Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs)
        • Inert to biological and chemical degradation
        • Life-span of up to 75 years with proper design and installation
        • Quick and easy installation
        • Environmental friendliness 


        Polyfelt® TM13C is designed to provide erosion protection equivalent to light armour protection systems and is effective for steep slopes and channel linings where high performance erosion control is required due to impact of water or rainfall.

        Typical applications include:

        • Banks of channels and impoundments, against current flow and turbulence
        • Earth dam and levee side slopes, against overtopping incidence or wave action
        • Slopes, against rainfall impact and surface runoff
