We no longer supply HydraCX™ as it is now superceded by the UK’s first manufactured hydraseeding range from TerrAffix manufactured specifically for European soils. As effective as HydraCX using reclaimed fibres and biochar, with the ability to sequester carbon and be used on highly polluted land this range has a wider suite of uses.
We work closely with TerrAffix Soil Solutions, an innovating company in Swansea that has developed a range of products (working closely with Swansea University researchers) that can re-vegetate zero soil and heavily contaminated sites.
This product, just like HydraCX, is hydraulically applied and is adjusted for your soil type.
HydraCX is a hydraulically applied erosion control product that protects slopes better than standard hydroseeding against soil and seed loss from heavy rain and wind from day one of application. It is 100% natural, consisting of reclaimed cotton and straw fibres.
Tackifiers and polymers within the HydraCX matrix chemically bond the soil particles preventing any soil loss even during major storm events. The all natural cotton of HydraCX holds just the right amount of moisture so is quicker than standard hydroseeding to quickly establish germination and promote vegetation growth for permanent erosion control.
Exceptional, high-performance slope erosion control equivalent to a biodegradable blanket.
HydraCX can be installed over rough terrain where voids, tree roots, rock outcrops and existing vegetation may be present. In contrast, geotextiles need good ground preparation.
This system is better than standard hydroseeding, being 99.6% effective in reduction of soil erosion under extreme rainfall in independent large-scale slope testing and has faster seed establishment than any other method. Nutrient rich natural cotton adds significant amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium to the soil.
HydraCX can be used to reduce topsoil depth and can remove the need for topsoil altogether.
There are also Health and Safety benefits, reducing the need to access slopes as opposed to installing erosion control geotextiles/blankets.
