Better Wetter

Super Soil wetter, re-wetter and spreader

Better Wetter is a ‘Super Wetter’ which helps to overcome the effects of water repelling soils allowing water to penetrate fast into the soil structure. By breaking down the natural surface tension between water and soil, Better Wetter promotes and regains the natural free flowing action of water required within the soil structure to promote healthy vegetation growth.

Available In: 25L pail & 1000L pod

Benefits of Better Wetter:

  • Allows water to penetrate the ground – fast
  • Reduced water usage and evaporation
  • Creates a better soil structure
  • Reduces soil ‘hard pan’
  • Produces healthier plants, lawn and trees
  • Improved chemical spreading

Application:

Better Wetter is a chemical that is added to water that is being used to water and irrigate plants, turf, lawn and crops. Better Wetter can be applied in conjunction with other chemical to improve their effectiveness and application process.

Hydromulch Tackifier

Soil and mulch binding and colloidal fixative in a powder form

Whilst mulch and paper erosion systems offer basic water-holding and ground binding properties the addition of a colloidal fixative (Hydromulch Tackifier) will greatly enhance the effectiveness and soil binding strength of the mulch.

Hydromulch Tackifier is water soluble and acts like glue that binds together the various components of the hydromulch and helps fix it to the soil

Available In: 25kg bag/drum

Benefits of Hydromulch Tackifier:

  • Increases the viscosity of the slurry
  • Reduces splashing
  • Binds the seed and mulch together
  • Retains moisture in the soil
  • Is effective in reducing erosion even when used alone as a soil treatment
  • Soaks into the soil and binds together soil particles forming an aggregation process.
  • The effect of Hydromulch Tackifier is temporary, breaking down in weeks due to sunlight and other environmental conditions, allowing the plants to soon promote erosion control as their root systems penetrate and hold the soil structure.

Application:

Hydromulch Tackifier is supplied in a powder form that is diluted in the water cart. Agitation is essential in mixing the product properly. It must be sprinkled into the water, allowing all individual grains of product to ‘wet out’. Do not add product in large quantities. Green Marking Dye can be added to monitor application areas.

Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier

Soil and mulch binding and colloidal fixative in a liquid form

Whilst mulch and paper erosion systems offer basic water-holding and ground binding properties the addition of a colloidal fixative (Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier) will greatly enhance the effectiveness and soil binding strength of the mulch.

Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier acts like glue that binds together the various components of the hydromulch and helps fix it to the soil with benefits as follows:

  • Increases the viscosity of the slurry
  • Reduces splashing
  • Binds the seed and mulch together
  • Retains moisture in the soil
  • Is effective in reducing erosion even when used alone as a soil treatment
  • Soaks into the soil and binds together soil particles forming an aggregation process.
  • The effect of Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier is temporary, breaking down over some months, allowing the plants to soon promote erosion control as their root systems penetrate and hold the soil structure.

Available In: 25L pail

Benefits of Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier:

  • Binds all hydromulch systems to the soil and ground
  • Reduces water usage and helps retain available moisture
  • Reduces erosion and the effects of erosion

Application:

Hydromulch Liquid Tackifier is supplied in a concentrated liquid form that is diluted further in the water cart. Maximum dilution rate should be no higher 0.4% and normal application should be 0.25%. Do not add product in large quantities and is essential to mix in the product properly. Green Marking Dye can be added to monitor application areas.

Green Malachite Crystals

Identification Marker

Shamrock Green is a marking dye developed to be added to products as an area identification marker whilst treating or once treated. It is also idea as an application thickness identifier or a ground colourant until turn is established.

Shamrock Green can be added into Hydromulch Systems, with soil tackifiers or sprayed directly onto the ground as a colourant. The product can also be mixed with herbicides and pesticides to identify treated areas.

Available In: 25kg bag/drum

Benefits of Green Malachite Crystals:

  • Super concentrated 
  • Short Term Colourant & Area Identification Marker  
  • A common choice in the revegetation industry.

Seed Stay Grow

Seed, mulch and soil locking technology

Seed Stay & Grow has been developed to spray over seed sown ground or alternatively mixing the seeds in the solution and spraying to bind the seeds to the ground and promote faster growth.

Seed Stay & Grow binds the seeds to the ground and forms a crust on the soil surface that still enables water to penetrate and the soil to breathe.

Seed Stay & Grow creates a soil crust to minimise erosion until the seeds germinate and the vegetation takes over. The individual seeds become coated with Seed Stay & Grow and as a result of the products unique film forming properties, the seeds are protected from the elements to germinate faster.

Available In: 25L pail & 1000L pod

Benefits of Seed Stay & Grow:

  • Minimises moisture loss by reducing transpiration rates
  • Protects the seed from heat, UV, cold and frosts
  • Bonds seed to the soil surface reducing loss due to erosion
  • Promotes faster growth

Application:

Seed Stay & Grow is diluted with water and then sprayed onto the surface to be treated using standard watering equipment or specialised hydroseeding equipment for project work.

Dosage rates vary dependant upon area to be treated –

  • 400L per ha @ 1:50 applied at a 2L dilution per m2 (Flat / Rolling Hills)
  • 800L per ha @ 1:12.5 applied at a 1L dilution per m2 (Steep embankments or slopes)
  • A stronger dilution and application rate results in a longer lasting treatment.

Supernatural

Naturally derived mulch and soil binder

Supernatural powdered hydromulching/hydroseeding binder contains organic polymers which are simply dissolved into the water of the hydromulching/hydroseeding equipment and sprayed as a binder and crusting agent for numerous hydromulching/hydroseeding applications. Supernatural can be applied as a single component for an ultra-cost effective erosion and dust control solution or in combination with other hydromulching or hydroseeding products as a total erosion package.

An added advantage delivered when using Supernatural is when the natural polymers slowly breakdown as polysaccharides, this stimulates the microbiological activity in the soil to energise and revitalise the soil. This is very important in rehabilitation projects where topsoils or overburden have been stockpiled for extended periods of time. Supernatural being naturally derived and inert is compatible with all other hydromulching/hydroseeding products. RST have a full range of fertiliser packages, wetting agents and marking dyes to add forming a complete erosion control package.
