Earthguard Fiber Matrix
Earthguard Fiber Matrix


Description

EarthGuard® is a proprietary blend of chemistry specifically designed to dramatically reduce erosion and silt pollution caused by rain and wind. EarthGuard’s high molecular weight combined with its specific charge density gives it a superior strength and the ability for maintaining soil integrity. Very little product is required for protection of the soil aggregate structure. EarthGuard is formulated to protect exposed soil for up to 3 months.


Characteristics

EarthGuard® is a soil stabilizing emulsion specifically formulated to reduce erosion and sediment runoff. It is Non-toxic, 100% biodegradable and conforms to the State of California Department of Transportation Standard Specifications Section 20-2.11 for “Stabilizing Emulsion”. EarthGuard®FM is a one-spray application, combining EarthGuard® and wood/cellulose fiber. EarthGuard® is chemically engineered to be effective at low rates while absorbing the impact of raindrops and providing immediate erosion control and soil stabilization until permanent vegetation is established.


Uses

EarthGuard is effective immediately and can be applied in any type of weather. EarthGuard doesn’t harden to create a false barrier that prevents storm water from penetrating into soil. EarthGuard is also ideal in landscaping applications because it protects the bare soil between plants and shrubs until roots and growth can provide enough erosion protection.
