Flexterra HP-FGM Leaves Nothing But a Better Environment Behind

A result of Profile’s Green Design Engineering™Flexterra® HP-FGM™ not only leads to sustainable vegetation, it enhances the natural environment. Flexterra HP-FGM:

  • Is 100% biodegradable as verified by ASTM Test Method D5338
  • Uses 100% recycled (verified via ISO 14021), phyto-sanitized and sterilized wood fibers which are heated to 380º F (193º C) during Thermally Refined® processing, making them weed and pathogen free
  • Is non-toxic to aquatic and terrestrial life forms as verified via EPA 2021.0 protocol
  • Contains no excessive heavy metals as verified by US EPA Standard Methods 18th Edition
  • Exhibits effluent runoff turbidity values less than 100 NTU, well below proposed EPA Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELGs)
  • Has no nets or threads to endanger wildlife and disrupt maintenance activities, a common hazard with many rolled erosion control blankets
