Product Line

Traptex® is a high quality synthetic fiber bunker lining material having excellent drainage and sand retention capabilities with enhanced UV resistance.  The product demonstrates superior compressed thickness below moderate sand depths and in prolonged wet conditions.  The unique characteristics of the material derive from the dual-locking process employed by Fiber Bond during its manufacture wherein the fibers are both needle punched (mechanically entangled) and resin-bonded to form a strong and durable material.
