WOOD-LOK™ BFM

BONDED FIBER MATRIX

Product Overview

WOOD-LOK BFM is the superior bonded fiber matrix used for soil erosion control.   It controls erosion more effectively than rolled erosion control blankets, sod and other competitive brands of BFM.   The combination of our steam fiberized, long strand virgin wood fibers and the extra holding power of our proprietary, multi-purpose, high strength cross-linked hydrocolloid-based tackifier anchors the mulch mat to the soil and it maintains its integrity despite repeated rains.  The porous mulch mat forms a water absorbing, anti-transpirant, breathable matrix designed to provide the perfect environment for seed germination

 

Wood-Lok BFM can be used with any mechanical agitated hydraulic seeding equipment.  It sprays on like a hydromulch to form a blanket that adheres to the soil.   As the matrix cures the wood fibers twist and lock with each other and with the soil to form a porous, erosion resistant mat that binds and protects the soil surface from water and wind erosion.

 

Wood-Lok BFM is manufactured to specific fiber sizes in a heat controlled environment to provide best job site performance.  Fibrils and fiber bundles have physical features that tend to intertwine with each other forming a more protective blanket.

 

Our proprietary hydro-colloid binders and the holding power of the long strand fibers make Wood-Lok BFM the preferred hydraulic erosion control product on the market today.

 

 

 

Forms a stable erosion control mat for up to one year on 1H:1V slopes or less
Incredible fiber to fiber and fiber to soil bonding
Performs better than Rolled Erosion Control Blankets
· Can be applied over rough soil – RECB’s require smooth surface
· Intimate soil contact on any terrain – not the case with RECB’s
· Biodegrades – RECB’s must be manually removed
· Environmentally friendly, not a hazard to wildlife as is RECB’s
· Less labor intensive and less costly than RECB’s
Erosion control mat does not dissolve or re-wet after it cures
Porous anti-transpirant mat encourages seed germination
Vibrant green color allows for an efficient and even application from a hose or tower gun
Loads quickly and easily into all mechanical paddle agitated hydraulic seeding equipment
Safe to use around humans, pets, wildlife and fish
Made from selected, fresh cut Pine and Poplar whole wood chips (virgin wood)
Our patented manufacturing process includes extreme heat, steam, pressure and mechanical defibration producing the finest sterile, toxin free mulch for seeding and erosion control
No growth inhibiting factors
Biodegradeable
Packaged in 50 lb. heavy plastic bags with UV inhibitor
Additives are homogeneously mixed with the wood fiber during manufacturing
Proprietary binders will not gum ball in hard or extremely cold water
