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.

Technical Specifications

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.

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.
