iGGmat Vmax³ P550 Permanent Turf Reinforcement Mat
The 100% polypropylene fiber matrix of the P550 increases the permanent matting’s initial mulching and erosion control performance as well as its permanent vegetation reinforcement capabilities. Proven in laboratory and field research, unvegetated P550 reduces soil loss to less than 0.5 in (12.7 mm) under shear stress up to 4.0 lbs/ft2 (191 Pa). The P550 drives the shear resistance of vegetation up to 14 lbs/ft2 (672 Pa) – establishing a new maximum for vegetation reinforcement! The P550 is the ultimate choice for extending the use of vegetation in extreme erosion control projects where only poured concrete or articulated concrete blocks (ACBs) were the only viable alternative.
