Better Roads honors HydraMatriCx Cotton Fiber series

HydraCX2 Cotton Fiber Reinforced Matrix, the first product from North American Green's new HydraMatriCx series of hydraulically applied erosion control products, has been recognized by Better Roads as one of the 50 Top Rollouts for 2007.

“Cotton by nature is porous, absorbent and biodegradable – an excellent trio for controlling erosion and establishing seed,” says Tim Lancaster, president of North American Green, a leading manufacturer and marketer of erosion control products. “We've taken a cotton-ginning byproduct and turned it into a value-add product for helping prevent soil erosion.”

HydraCX2 Fiber Reinforced Matrix is well suited for controlling erosion and revegetating steep roadside slopes. Since its introduction in mid-2007, it has already gained acceptance by numerous Departments of Transportation nationwide. The cotton hydromulch product is manufactured exclusively for North American Green by Centre, Ala.-based Mulch & Seed Innovations LLC.

Developed in cooperation with the USDA and Cotton Incorporated, HydraCX2 Cotton Fiber Reinforced Matrix is proven to help establish seed and grow grass fast. Research was conducted by the Department of Agronomy at Auburn University, Ala., and the USDA Agricultural Research Station, Lubbock, Texas.

In addition to being 100-percent natural and nontoxic, it adds key nutrients to the soil and requires less water during application. With one-step application and instant agitation, HydraCX2 Cotton Fiber Reinforced Matrix saves time and money.
