Erosion Control

Erosion Control

PennzSuppress® D works as a soil sealant to control erosion and suppress dust.

PennzSuppress D is a specially formulated, effective control agent for the treatment of loose soil conditions where erosion is likely to occur. For erosion control projects, PennzSuppress® D works as a soil sealant by penetrating into the ground to improve the cohesion of the soil surface without affecting groundwater. This improved cohesion reduces the soil movement at the surface by significantly decreasing the amount of material available to erode by either wind or water action.

At the same time, since PennzSuppress® D does not inhibit plant growth, it is an extremely useful binding agent. When mixed and sprayed with hydro seed, it acts as a tackifier until root growth progresses to provide a means to further reduce or prevent surface soil movement and seed loss. On clay soil slopes, PennzSuppress D is as effective as blanket-type devices in reducing sediment run-off on slopes, up to a steepness of 1:2. For sandy soil, PennzSuppress is useful as a hydraulic mulch to help secure the seeds in place and prevent them from washing away.

These qualities make PennzSuppress® D a very effective product for controlling erosion on overpasses, entry ways, new construction, and any other areas which will grow vegetation or ground cover. Our product can also be used to provide temporary reduction of surface soil movement until more permanent measures are taken to eliminate or control erosion and dust.
