Georgetown, S.C. — Thanks to their unique properties and long service life, geosynthetics have proliferated in the construction business across environmental and civil applications to encompass nearly every type of project from landfill closures to municipal water supply. Despite their ubiquity, geosynthetics differ greatly in strength, flexibility, and overall composition depending on its manufacturing process. They can be hardened and made into large-diameter pipes, or even spread into sheets with built-in studs to facilitate the flow of fluids. Some differences are by choice, designed to meet the needs of a specific application. Other differences are economical, meant to save money on the assembly line.

A webinar on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 12:00 p.m. EST, will introduce viewers to AGRU America and the benefits of its use of the flat-die manufacturing process, provide an overview of geosynthetic products produced by AGRU, and share the results of construction projects that utilized these products.

During the webinar, viewers will:

  • Learn about the history of AGRU America and its manufacturing process.
  • Discover the benefits of using the flat-die cast process versus blown film process.
  • Explore the geomembrane systems produced by AGRU.
  • Learn about AGRU’s quality control standards, accreditations, and testing.
  • Find out how multiple AGRU products can be combined into the cost-effective Integrated Drainage System.
  • Gain a better understanding of ClosureTurf®, a product manufactured in partnership with Watershed Geo.
  • Receive an overview of AGRU concrete protection liner, geonet, geocomposite, geosynthetic clay liners, large diameter pipe, and fiitings.
  • Have their questions answered during a live Q&A.

The speaker, Nick Rauh, has a B.S. in civil engineering from the University of Nevada, Reno. He started his career working as a project engineer for a geosynthetics installation and general contracting company and has since been working as a technical manager for AGRU America in the Mountain/Midwest region, as well as providing technical support for the mining market. Rauh has extensive knowledge in the geosynthetics industry, from project design through installation procedures.

This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes with 20 minutes of Q&A. Signup at
