Bring Green Design Engineering to Drier Sites
CocoFlex™ is your best bet when growing conditions are at their worst.
In addition to preventing silt migration and soil erosion, the primary mission of Green Design Engineering™ is to promote vegetation establishment. One of the most effective ways Green Design Engineering products accomplish this is through superior moisture retention. CocoFlex™ ET-FGM is a great example. Its patented design blends coconut and Thermally Refined® wood fibers, crimped interlocking man-made fibers and additives that work synergistically for greater water absorption and performance under extreme conditions. It is an ideal consideration for:
- Semi-arid areas
- Sites where vegetation establishment may be delayed due to harsh growing conditions
- Sites where slower-developing native grasses are required or desired
- Use in combination with other erosion control technologies such as ProPlus® Prescriptive Agronomic Formulations to accommodate a broad range of conditions
It requires no cure time and provides superior slope protection over turf establishment blankets and Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM) products. Its two years of protection makes it the highest performing, longest-lasting hydraulically applied erosion control product on the market.
