Degradable erosion mats are very flexible erosion control blankets to keep soil and seeds stable until vegetation thrives. The woven fibers break down by photo-degradation until they become part of the soil. These mats absorb water easily to withstand heavy rain and stressful conditions. It is ideal for environmentally sensitive bioengineering applications. It is used as steep slopes, low flow channels, flexible bioengineering textile, an anchor for straw/hay mulches and closure systems.
