There are different types of the classic erosion control blanket made of coir in the iGGmat coir product series. They all have a fiber layer of coir 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 coir products can also be supplied as seeded blankets. In this case a carrying paper with seeds is stitched to the fiber cover.
iGGmat coir is used on areas at risk of erosion with up to 40° slope (1:1.2) for temporary erosion control. The lifetime of the iGGmat coir is up to 36 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 coir products are up to 100 % biodegradable.
