What is a Hydromulch Tackifier?
Tackifiers, by definition, are chemical compounds used in formulating adhesives to create tackiness or the stickiness. So, using a tackifier provides or increases adhesion.
Thus, a hydromulch tackifier is adhesive for seed and fiber (mulch).
Hydromulching, at its core, is an essential element to many processes involving the healthy and vast cultivation of expansive vegetation – primarily that of grasses.
Sometimes referred to as hydroseeding, the hydromulch process is a faster, more economical way to bring get vegetative coverage over large areas quickly and economically and to increase the likelihood of seed germination. This is to the benefit of contractors worldwide, laying down and planting seed from applications from residential lawns to commercial and government projects such as seeding roadsides as a means to help protect against dust, erosion and elemental runoff.
