ProMatrix EFM CSI Specifications
This document specifies the hydraulically-applied erosion control product ProMatrix™ Engineered Fiber Matrix™ (EFM™). ProMatrix EFM is 100% biodegradable, made in the United States and is composed of 100% recycled, thermally refined (within a pressurized vessel) virgin wood fibers, crimped interlocking biodegradable fibers, mineral activators and wetting agents (including high-viscosity colloidal polysaccharides, cross-linked biopolymers, and water absorbents). The EFM is phytosanitized, free from plastic netting, and when cured forms an intimate bond with the soil surface to create a continuous, porous, absorbent and flexible erosion resistant blanket that allows for rapid germination and accelerated plant growth. The EFM performs as a Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) product and may require a 4-24 hour curing period to achieve maximum performance.
