Bind Straw

A variety of ways to meet a variety of needs.

Even the most basic erosion, sediment or dust control methods can easily and economically be enhanced with ProPlus® Tackifiers. Our binding agents effectively hold loose straw mulches on the ground while improving the viscosity and shooting distance of mulch slurries. The industry’s leading and longest line of tackifiers comes with an assortment of organic and chemical ingredients to match virtually any site condition or regulatory requirement. Here is an overview of their uses:
