Erosamat Type 4K PP is a natural biodegradable mat for immediate surface protection and erosion control until vegetation is established. It consists of 100% coir matting stitched together between two binding layers of photodegradable polymer mesh. For effective protection and successful germination, it is essential that the Erosamat is pinned in close contact with the underlying soil.

Erosamat Type 4K PP products have applications in the initial protection of water channels, highway embankment slopes, landfill caps, restorations and landscaping schemes subject to surface erosion prior to the establishment of vegetation cover.

Erosamat 4K PP provides 99% soil cover and will slowly degrade to form nutrients to support vegetation.
