Description

FiberRX™ is a fine granulation guar gum specifically designed for the erosion control industry. This product meets or exceeds requirements for nonasphaltic tacking emulsions. FiberRX™ increases flow and pumping volumes allowing equipment to run more efficiently and help reduce the need for reseeding while minimizing soil erosion.

Product Benefits

FiberRX™ Tackifier is generally characterized as a 200mesh powder, which typically yields a coldwater viscosity of 4100-4600 cps after hydrating for 2 hours. FiberRX™ shall be of such character that it will disperse into a uniform slurry when mixed with water. FiberRX™ shall be free from growth or germination inhibiting ingredients. FiberRX™ shall
be applied as a slurry solution by means of hydroseeder.

 

• 10 – 25 lbs per 1000 gallons (4.5 – 11 kg per 3,785 Liters) of water for Hydroseeding/Hydromulching work

 

• 40 lbs per 1000 gallons (18 kg per 3,785 Liters) of water for Blown Straw Tackification.

 

It is imperative that FiberRX™ is applied at the specified rate in a uniform manner for optimal performance. Add FiberRX™ slowly into hydroseeder on low agitation after water has begun to cover the blades. Once FiberRX™ is thoroughly mixed, add mulch, seed and fertilizer if necessary. When using as a Blown Straw Tackifier it is recommended to add 150 to 300 lbs (68 – 136 kg) of mulch fiber per 1000 gallons (3,785 Liters) of water for use an aesthetic marker.
