Hydraulic Erosion Control Products (HECP)
Wood Fiber Mulch – Rainier
Rainier Fiber ™ Premium wood fiber mulch is 100% virgin wood fiber mulch. It is manufactured under constant quality control checks. The fiber is consistent in size and texture for optimum performance. Application rates will vary depending on site and slope.
Rainier Fiber™ Plus Tackifier is 100% virgin wood fiber mulch for use in hydraulic planting with the extra holding power of a tackifier. It is high quality wood mulch, to which a high grade organic tackifier is added to enhance erosion protection. Constant production control checks ensure that the fiber is consistent in size and texture for the most optimum performance. Application rates will vary depending on site and slope.
Rainier Fiber™ Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) consists of long strand virgin wood fibers along with a high strength, non–toxic, hydrocolloid–based binder giving the product extra holding power for up to 12 months. The system sprays on like mulch and forms a blanket that adheres to the soil surface. When dry, the blanket matrix is porous, erosion resistant and protects the soil surface. The matrix retains its integrity and soil protection despite re–wetting. Application rates will vary depending on site and slope.
Rainier Supreme ™ is the top rated wood fibre mulch product from Rainier. It passed the ASTM D6459 Modified Large Scale Slope Erosion Testing required for US DOT. It’s superior strength comes from the addition of a special formulated high–strength, non–toxic, cross–linked organic binder. This combination gives superior erosion protection without the addition of man–made synthetic fibers which are not naturally biodegradable. The system sprays on like mulch and forms a blanket that adheres to the soil surface immediately upon application. When dry, the blanket is porous, erosion resistant and protects the soil surface. The blanket retains its integrity and soil protection despite re–wetting for well beyond 12 months. Application rates will vary depending on site and slope.
Other Mulch Products
Profile Cover grow is dry pelletized mulch product consisting of recycled wood and cellulose fibres. It is designed to be applied by hand, spreader, or jet agitation hydroseeders. Once the dry pellets are applied to a site and receive moisture, they expand to cover bare soil and seed to enable vegetation establishment. This product is ideal for jet agitation hydroseeders as it flows easily.
Soil Amendment – Verdyol Biotic Earth™
Verdyol Biotic Earth™ is designed to achieve successful vegetation when used as a topsoil or compost alternative, or where existing soils are less than ideal. Verdyol Biotic Earth™ is made with sustainably harvested Canadian sphagnum peat moss, natural fibers, mycorrhizal fungi, beneficial bacteria, and natural growth stimulants to allow vegetation to thrive.
Hydraulically applied at a rate of approximately 3,500 lbs. per acre, Verdyol Biotic Earth™ accelerates the nutrient cycling and soil building processes to establish permanent vegetation.
