XF 3211 is a geo-composite composed of a drainage core of fused three dimensional entangled polypropylene filaments thermally bonded to a nonwoven water retention fleece made of 100% mixed recycled synthetic fibers that are durable and do not rot.
The propylene filaments are molded into a square waffle pattern to form a drainage core with excellent compressive strength. Polypropylene has a low moisture absorption thus maintaining its strength even in wet service environment. It is chemically inert and has excellent resistance against organic solvents, degreasing agents, acids, and alkalines.
The water retention fleece is a lightweight non-woven that can capture and store more than 7.5 times its own weight in water. Unlike reservoir drains where water is stored in segregated small “cups”, XF 3211 provides a uniform supply of water in direct contact with the growing medium that is readily accessible by the plants.
XF 3211 comes in convenient roll format. It is water vapor permeable and therefore suitable for installation on conventional and protected membrane roofs. It is an environmental conscious green roof drain that contains 71% by weight of post-industrial recycled materials.

Installation of XF3211
Install XF 3211 with the water retention fleece facing up and entangled filaments down. Butt rolls and cover joint with adjacent roll using the built-in 4in. (100mm) side lap to achieve a continuous fleece coverage. Butt ends of rolls together. Stagger adjacent rolls by at least 40 in. (1m) so end joints are not aligned. Cover XF 3211 immediately after installation to prevent wind uplift and degradation by ultra-violet radiation.
Polypropylene has excellent resistance against organic solvents, degreasing agents, acids, & alkalines. It has tensile strength superior to high density polyethylene. It is lightweight & has low moisture absorption.
