Created for superior
EcoArmour’s™ non-ﬂammable crust holds the substrate underneath in place, eliminating erosion caused by rain and wind.
Strength with Immediate Erosion Control
EcoArmour™ forms a hydrophobic fibre matrix to allow for strength, providing immediate erosion control.
EcoArmour™ has the ability to blanket rough and uneven surfaces.
Fast & Safe Application
Multiple application methods to ensure safe and efficient access for installation.
Set & Forget
No maintenance is required once EcoArmour™ is installed, lasting in excess of 20 years.
A colouring agent can be added to achieve a tailored colour upon application.
Australian designed and manufactured, EcoArmour™ is a synthetic erosion control blanket that has been designed to be sprayed through high-pressure hydroseeder equipment. Once sprayed, it dries and sets in a matter of hours, providing extended high-shear resistant erosion control.
EcoArmour’s™ advanced technology means that it will stabilise surfaces in excess of 20 years, making it the ideal erosion control and stabilisation product for vertical walls, roadside batters, steep slopes, drains, and all substrates including compacted clay, rock, sand, sandy loam, dispersive soils, and any soils that are extremely difficult to manage and access.
A Greener Erosion Control Blanket
EcoArmour™ is a highly effective erosion control blanket (ECB), unlike conventional ECBs, EcoArmour™ allows for quicker and safer installation, a true alternative to Shotcrete, Geosynthetics and Geotextiles.

Frequently asked questions
EcoArmour™ Erosion Control Blanket
What is EcoArmour™?
EcoArmour™ is an engineered, high-performance Erosion Control Blanket that has been designed to provide superior erosion control for all substrate types.
Can I purchase and install EcoArmour™ myself?
EcoArmour™ has been designed to be pneumatically projected at high velocity utilising specialist hydroseeding equipment. We are a solution-based company focused on providing end-to-end solutions for Australian Industries, therefor at this time we do not sell EcoArmour™ as a standalone product.
Is a warranty provided?
We are able to offer our clients a 10-year warranty under our Supply, Apply, Guarantee initiative in conjunction with our installers, Spray Grass Australia.
Can EcoArmour™ be used in residential projects?
We currently do not provide services for residential projects.
How long after application will erosion control be achieved?
As one of the most innovative erosion control products on the market, EcoArmour™ provides 100% erosion control within 3-4 hours after application.
Which companies have installed EcoArmour™?
Companies that have utilised EcoArmour™ for projects around Australia include V/Line, Global Rail, GHD, Coleman Rail and the Australian Defence Department to name a few.
How waterproof is EcoArmour™?
EcoArmour™ has the addition of hydrophobic minerals added to the composition of materials resulting in excellent impermeability levels. This has been tested utilising ‘coefficient of permeability’ value K measurement, representing the rate of waterflow through the area of material.
A blend of minerals, interlocking fibres and specialty binders form EcoArmour’s™ durable, non-flammable crust, creating a high strength, ultra-low porosity membrane. The specialty binders adhere to and incorporate themselves into the substrate below, forming a tough, resilient cover that is also flexible enough to bind and move with the ground below it, eliminating cracking of the coating. It has been designed to prevent erosion caused by rain, wind and overland flow, with the strength to withstand severe rain and wind events.
Forms a hydrophobic fibre matrix for strength and durability
Extremely high bonding characteristics
High compressive and flexural strengths
Format / Application
With the ability to be applied safe and efficiently, EcoArmour™ is pneumatically projected at high velocity utilising specialist hydroseeding equipment, meaning that application takes days, not weeks. EcoArmour™ dries quickly, with the ability to withstand moderate rain events after 3 hours and requires no further maintenance.
Minimal preparation is required prior to the application of EcoArmour™. Where vegetation must be removed, along with fallen debris. Where substrates are unable to be compacted, however, an emulsion application can be undertaken prior to EcoArmour™ installation.
Packaging & Appearance
EcoArmour™ is available in 1 tonne or 25 kilogram packaging and appears as a grey powder substance
EcoArmour™ will achieve 100% erosion control effectiveness and strength after complete drying
Mixture & Application
Consideration must be made for wind and wind direction
Working time will be reduced in hot temperatures and increased in colder temperatures.
If setting is delayed, avoid trafficking the area until sufficiently dried.
EcoArmour™ features excellent adhesion properties to various substrates, including soil, clay, sand and sandy loam, rock, shale and weathered concrete, and can be applied to areas that are extremely difficult to manage and access.
Slopes & Batters
EcoArmour™ is most commonly used for slope protection and slope stabilisation projects due to its superior erosion control qualities.
Swales & Drains
Acting as an effective weed suppressant, EcoArmour™ reduces costs in maintenance and installation while adding additional levels of impermeability and fire protection.
With greater installation efficiency, EcoArmour™ costs less and is able to be installed in areas with reduced access with ease, eliminating safety risks.
Bund & Culvert Linings
EcoArmour™ offers a cost-effective alternative to repairing damaged culverts and containment bunds, offering a durable means of erosion protection
For aesthetic purposes, a custom colouring agent may be added to the EcoArmour™ blend, achieving colours varying form grey to brown and red to green to blend in with the surrounding environment.
