Mechanical Fibers, are specially coated to improve the bonding strength of Applegate hydro-seeding mulches. These Fibers improve the performance of hydro-seeding mulches by providing a mechanical adhesion of fibers resulting from the fibers long length. This reduces the need for chemical tackifiers, and extends the longevity of fiber mulch hydration.
Improves the bonding strength of hydromulches
Mechanically binds fibers to fibers and fibers to soil particles
Reduces the need for chemical tackifiers
