Introduction

Hydraulic Mulch is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch which is sprayed over prepared ground to promote vegetation. Nilex carries the following hydromulch solutions to assist with your vegetation establishment challenges:

High End Hydraulic Mulches

MulchMax FiberMatrix HP (High Performance)

High Performance blend with 10% tackifier is engineered to contour, with outstanding soil surface and inter-fiber adhesion. Suitable to apply on moderate to steep slopes. Made from organic, naturally-occurring materials, it is 100% biodegradable and requires less water to mix than a wood-only mulch.

Earth Essence® HGM2

Earth Essence HGM2 products are hydraulically applied materials to advance the hydro-seeding, erosion control, revegetation and soil building industries. They contain a proprietary blend of natural fibers, growth mediums, soil stabilizers, natural plant and microbial growth stimulators to provide a multi-phased releasing system. 

FlexTerra Hp-FGM

The loft of the HP-FGM™ matrix creates air space, which not only captures more moisture to improve seedling emergence, it also improves the oxygen exchange necessary for robust plant development. Patented Micro-Pore Technology gives the matrix additional water and nutrient retention properties

HydroBlanket Bonded Fiber Matrix (BFM)

Anchors intimately to the soil through proprietary cross-linked, polysaccharide tackifiers and activators. Dries to form a breathable, built-in-place blanket. Completely biodegrades, is non-toxic and environmentally safe. Compared to erosion control blankets, it: Is safer and easier to apply; eliminates staples and stakes; tenting and rilling; and, it eliminates extensive and more costly site preparation.

HydraCMTM Steep Slope Matrix

The HydraCM Steep Slope Matrix is a hydraulically-applied mulch composed of a patent-pending blend of mechanically processed straw fibers, reclaimed cotton plant materials, performance-enhancing tackifiers, and other proprietary additives. The HydraCM matrix is designed for soil erosion protection, and establishes an intimate bond upon application with the soil’s surface to create a continuous, porous, absorbent, and flexible erosion control matrix that allows for rapid germination and accelerated plant growth.

HydraCX2 Extreme Slope Matrix

The HydraCX2 Extreme Slope Matrix is a hydraulically-applied mulch composed of a patent-pending blend of mechanically processed straw fibers, reclaimed cotton plant materials, performance-enhancing tackifiers, and other proprietary additives. The HydraCX2 matrix requires no curing for soil erosion protection, and establishes an intimate bond upon application with the soil’s surface to create a continuous, porous, absorbent, and flexible erosion control matrix that allows for rapid germination and accelerated plant growth.

Wood Fiber Mulch

MulchMax 101Wood

MulchMax 101Wood hydroseeding mulch is the practical solution for standard hydro-seeding requirements where productivity matters. Our proprietary blend of wood and high performance flexible bast fibers allow MulchMax 101Wood to closely contour to the soil while maintaining the traditional cover of wood. One bag of MulchMax 101wood goes a long way in the tank with only 90 gallons of water required for every 50lb bag of mulch.

Terra-Wood

Terra-Wood is a fully biodegradable, Hydraulic Mulch (HM) composed of 100% recycled Thermally Refined™ wood fibers. The HM is phyto-sanitized, free from plastic netting, and upon application forms an intimate bond with the soil surface to create a porous and absorbent layer that enhances germination and plant growth.
