ProMatrix - for steeper slopes and erosion control
(Engineered Fibre Matrix - EFM)
For steeper slopes with the potential for run-off a heavier duty mulch may be required. Run-off can strip both the finer particles and nutrients from the soil making it even more difficult to get good vegetative growth. It can also cause problems further away with silt getting into water courses or onto roadways. Standard mulch is usually 100% wood fibre with tackifier designed to knit the seed to the soil surface. Steeper slopes may need that extra performance from the mulch, this is where ProMatrix comes into its own.
ProMatrix is an EFM manufactured by Profile Products LLC. It is designed to provide effective erosion control and an enhanced medium for vegetative growth. It comprises:
Pulverised, thermally treated wood fibre 77.0%
Wetting agents, these enable smooth application and aid performance by holding water and nutrients 18.0%
Man-made 100% bio-degradable interlocking fibres for extra strength 2.5%
Ceramic particles derived from Fuller's Earth, to optimise water and nutrient retention in the matrix 2.5%
