Soil Binding Polymer Emulsions

Description

Soil Binders are used on various projects as a means of temporary dust suppression, erosion control and general soil stabilisation on civil construction sites. They work to hold down and bind soil particles, often with a flexible finish.

Types of Binder
Valley Hydramulch & Revegetation have used a variety of product for soil binding purposes.  RST is our preferred supplier and further information on their binder technologies can be found at https://www.rstsolutions.com.au.

Description

A Compost Blanket is an application which contains the following ingredients:

  • Seed
  • Water
  • Organic Fertiliser
  • Inorganic Fertiliser
  • Wood-Fibre
  • Polymer Binder
  • Ameliorants (Lime, Gypsum & Compost)

Suitability

The ingredients of a Compost Blanket can be altered to ensure the overall mix is suitable for the site conditions present.  This allows for the best chance for successful results to occur when:

  • There is a failure or problem in growing grass or growth in grass
  • Unsuitable topsoil
  • Poor subsoil
  • Hydromulch not working from other spraygrass companies and you have practical completion defects that need addressing

The ingredients of a Compost Blanket are:

  • Free from hazardous additives, chemicals, and toxins.
  • Remain intact in heavy rain, with ingredients washing into the surface rather than off the surface.
  • Negating the need for maintenance watering.

This gives a thick “mat” of fibre that protects against erosion and also provides an excellent moisture retaining bed to assist seed germination.
This unit incorporates the seed, fertilizer, wood fibre, and binder in a slurry mixture with water, and then sprays the slurry on the area to be treated via a high pressure pump system.

Suitability
Bonded Fibre Matrix is suitable for erosion prone surfaces, friable surfaces, and steep banks. It is an excellent method of dust and particle suppression.

HolbrookgeneraloverveiwofStrawMulching0Description
The spreading of a straw mulch over areas previously seeded using the Hydroseed method.  The straw is then coated with an emulsion to adhere the straw fibres together and to stop the straw being blown away in light winds.

Suitability
The use of this application is usually restricted to cooler climates, where the straw bank acts more as an insulation during frosts, rather than erosion control.

 

 

Description

Hydromulch is an application which contains the following ingredients:

  • Seed
  • Water
  • Organic Fertiliser
  • Woodfibre
  • Polymer Binder

Suitability
Hydromulch applications are suitable for a range of different terrains, varying from flat surfaces to slopes.  Such applications can be used to provide instant coverage in erosion control areas, preventing erosion associated with rainfall events. A limitation of the application is that it includes minimal fertilisers in the application so it may struggle to continue germination in the long-term.

Hydroseeding

Description
Hydroseed is an application which contains the following ingredients:

  • Seed
  • Water
  • Organic Fertiliser

Suitability

Hydroseed is an application which can be applied quickly to the surface. A negative of this application type is that there is no protection for the seed, as there is no inclusion of a binder within a Hydroseeding application.
