Our Envirotac line of erosion control polymers works great to protect slopes and embankments from Erosion. Envirotac being an acrylic polymer will penetrate the earth soil and upon curing will bond the soil particles together. This will "laminate" the area reducing water and wind penetration keeping soil sediment in place. Unlike mulch applications, it will not sheet off but will stay adhered to the soil. Also it will not harm vegetation and in many instances will increase germination rates.
North American Green`s Erosion Control Systems have proven solutions for your sediment control problems. Active construction job sites, forest fire rehabilitation and roadside projects all present unique sediment control challenges. That’s why project designers prefer the aesthetics and safety offered by degradable sediment control solutions - especially our SediMax Sediment Retention Systems’ fiber rolls. SediMax products can dramatically reduce surface sheet erosion with greater filtration capacity...
Problem: Soil particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional protection measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.
Spraying Envirotac on loose soil binds the soil particles and does not let the them be carried into the air, preventing dust pollution, thus reducing dust allergies and other respiratory problems. One application will control dust for over a year at a fraction of the cost being spent maintaining with water.
Tidal fluctuations and wave action can cause major damage to coastlines and off-shore construction projects. Nonwoven and specialty woven geotextiles can be used as a filter under layer beneath stone/ rock armour. Also riprap or synthetic erosion control mats are used to control erosion by disallowing the sub grade soil particles to erode. The geotextiles prevent erosion carried off by runoff water or other erosive waters, such as waves, stream flow, etc.
The largest threat to wetlands is the risk of being flooded with sediment as a result of a poorly managed construction site. Most construction projects require erosion control to prevent damage to the wetlands.
Slopes can present serious erosion control challenges. In addition to the effects of runoff and the need to protect wildlife, there are issues of aesthetics, and, of course, budgets. That is why project designers prefer the value, aesthetics and safety offered by soft armor solutions - especially those from North American Green’s complete line of erosion and sediment control systems.
Channels can present unique erosion control challenges. In addition to the effects of storm runoff, sediment migration, and the need to protect wildlife, there are issues of aesthetics, and, of course, budgets. No matter what erosion control problems are part of your project, you can be sure we have a solution that works. That is why project designers prefer the value, aesthetics and safety offered by North American Green’s complete line of erosion and sediment control systems. And with North American...
REMEDIAL ACTION PRACTICES include the requirements to develop erosion and sedimentation control plans, specifying plan content and soil conservation measures to keep sediment–laden mud from washing into storm sewers and watersheds where debris can clog creek channels and choke off aquatic life. Sediment control BMPs combine structural and non–structural measures used to avoid or minimize pollutants accumulated by environmental hazards across impervious surfaces.
Stream banks and shorelines can present far-reaching erosion and sediment control challenges. Variable flow conditions and shoreline shear stresses must be considered as well as the effects of flooding, runoff and topography. The need to protect water quality plus aquatic and wildlife habitats can be critical. No matter what erosion control problems and other issues are part of your project, you can be sure we have a solution that works. Whether your shoreline or stream bank project is simple or demanding, and...
Envirotac line of polymers has been effectively used as a sub-base for roads, out-performing a standard rock base in performance and significantly in cost. Envirotac has been a preferred choice by many Departments of Transportation, replacing rock base and then having a cinder seal or chip seal sprayed over.
Hydraulic Erosion Control Products (HECPs) are engineered mulch applied to slopes to reduce soil erosion while assisting in the establishment and growth of vegetation. An alternative to temporary Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs), hydraulically applied products can be installed up to three times faster using one-third the manpower. North American Green`s HECPs are applied in a one-step application with seed and fertilizer, with the potential for quicker installation and project cost savings compared to products...
Nilex’s engineered erosion control and sediment control products reduce the damaging effects of rainfall, wind and wave action on soil structures while replacing or reducing the dependency on scarce natural resources.
Geosynthetic erosion control products are designed to reduce damaging effects of rainfall, run-off, and wave and wind action on soil structures by redirecting water flow or acting as a barrier between the soil surface and water.
Nilex Erosion Control systems include: Erosion...
Envirotac line of polymers can be used to make the base for landfills which will not allow the harmful pollutants to seep or leach into the earth. In addition, by spraying Envirotac on top of hazardous materials, it will contain the gases and odor by reducing the PPM, preventing air and water pollution.
Envirotac has been used for dust control / soil stabilization on numerous BMX tracks throughout the United States. Its not uncommon for Nationals to be hosted on an Envirotac stabilized surface. When constructing turns and jumps incorporate Envirotac into the soil to keep the shape of the jump or turn and have a dust free surface that will hold up to rain and snow.
The Envirotac (Rhino Snot) line of polymers are the number one used soil stabilization chemicals by the Untied States Military. They have tested numerous products and continue to rely on Envirotac to protect our country`s assets. Applications include but are not limited to runways, landing pads, supply roads, base camps, and so much more. In a test conducted by the United States Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center our Envirotac polymer was 97% effective and the second most effective was a well known...
Envirotac line of polymers have been used to construct roads around the world. Our polymers cross link the soils at a nano level creating a tough durable surface that will stand up to Heavy Haul trucks and the daily grind of vehicular traffic. If you are using Chlorides, Lignin`s, or Enzymes, make the switch to a superior road stabilizing technology.
Because of the soil filled nature of our barriers and the ability to achieve a variety of vertical or pyramid stacked configurations, we have a number of erosion control applications we are commonly used for. Applications include: Soil stabilization, Retaining walls (can be self-anchored with 90 degree tie-ins), Riverbank protection, Toe protection, Wetland restoration, Beach protection.
Envirotac line of polymers have been assisting mines reduce airborne particulate matter for over 25 years. Used on tailings, Envirotac will create a tough layer of protection that will laminate soil particles in place. We have had singular applications that have been effective for over 5 years.
Envirotac line of polymers perform exceptionally well in constructing parking areas. Whether it be in-situ soils, road base, gravel, recycled asphalt, or decomposed granite Envirotac will lock the particles in place. It is great at controlling dust, preventing ruts and washboarding , and increasing the surface strength. Carbon black can be added to make the area look like asphalt and stripes can be painted over the surface.
