Water-Holding Capacity Demonstration Video

This table top demonstration illustrates the superior absorbency of hydraulic mulch created from
Thermally Refined® wood fiber.

The water-holding capacity of hydraulic mulch is critical in two areas: in the tank and on the ground. Inferior fibers that don’t absorb water well don’t mix well in the tank, reducing the shooting distance of a slurry that is more prone to clogging and more difficult to apply evenly. Thermally Refined wood fibers absorb water well to create a more fluid slurry that stays in suspension longer, resulting in fewer clogs, better shooting distance, and more uniform coverage. The added water in the mulch, and the ability to readily reabsorb and hold more water from rain or irrigation, also greatly enhances seed germination and vegetation establishment.
