Bonded Fiber Matrix

Sprayed as a wet mulch, this subset of hydroseeding is used as an erosion control product.

The bonded fiber matrix is a continuous layer of elongated fiber strands held together by a water-resistant bonding agent. It keeps raindrops from hitting the soil because it has no holes larger than one millimeter. It allows no gaps between the product and the soil, and has a high water-holding capacity. It will not form a water-insensitive crust that can inhibit plant growth. It biodegrades into materials that help plant growth.
