Erosion Control Polymers
Our Envirotac line of erosion control polymers works great to protect slopes and embankments from Erosion. Envirotac being an acrylic polymer will penetrate the earth soil and upon curing will bond the soil particles together. This will "laminate" the area reducing water and wind penetration keeping soil sediment in place. Unlike mulch applications, it will not sheet off but will stay adhered to the soil. Also it will not harm vegetation and in many instances will increase germination rates.
The use of Envirotac has been great in our SWPPP plan. It's easy to apply and holds up better than previous mulch and binders we have used in the past." - Jack Gorman, Clean Sweep Environmental
Envirotac promotes germination in seed. Even though Envirotac prevents over saturation of soils due to rain events it still keeps moisture in. It replicates a terrarium to a degree by keeping moisture in the soils longer. Also by keeping soil in place this prevents seed displacement. Studies have shown two to five day earlier germination rates along with 20% higher germination rate of grasses.
