There are different types of the classic erosion control blanket made of straw in the iGGmat straw product series. They all have a layer of 100 % straw and are stitched either on one or both sides with a backing made of PP-netting or jute fabric, as well as a PP- or jute-fiber. All iGGmat straw products can also be supplied as seeded blankets. In this case a carrying paper with seeds is stitched to the straw layer.
iGGmat straw is used on areas at risk of erosion with up to 10° slope (1:5.7) for temporary erosion control. The lifetime of the iGGmat straw is up to 12 months. It depends on the conditions of the location, the soil, water and climatic conditions as well as the risk of erosion on-site. iGGmat straw products are up to 100 % biodegradable.
