Additives for hydroseeding

 

iGGvital

The additives of IGGvital are the key to successful hydroseeding. Given the right mixture even raw soils and areas of extreme local conditions can be greened successfully. We will be pleased to assist you in finding the right combination of mulch and fertilizer for your project.

iGGvital LF is an organic slow-release liquid fertilizer (energy-bearing source of nutrients). This nutrient component is an organic sugar phosphorus amide in the form of a lquid concentrate, which is diluted with water and applied for soil amelioration as well as long-term fertilization. Nitrogen and phosphorus which is organically bound in iGGvital LF is released as ammonium and phosphate by microbial decomposition.

The organically bound phosphorus and nitrogen compounds, placed in deeper soil areas on account of liquid application, support the root growth.

Effect:

Stimulation of the root growth, improvement of the soil structure and nutrient supply, activation of the soil life, increase of the buffering capacity.

Field of application:

Recultivation of virgin soils, treatment of planting holes, revitalisation of lawns and forest land, pretreatment of planting areas.

Time of application:

During the whole period of grass growing. On lawns in spring and autumn. For trees during time of planting.

Quantity per m²:

From 60 to 80 g/m² per year in one step depending on location.

Packing:

30 kg non-returnable containers on a one way pallet or 240 kg drums, or 1200 kg tanks

Type of substance:

Organic Sugar Phosphorus Amide

iGGvital LF

iGGvital SC is an organic slow-release fertilizer with a soil improving effect. It is manufactured of the mycelium of the soil fungus. After application and irrigation the dehydrated and granulated substance serves as a slow-release source of nutrients.

Nitrogen which is organically bound (in protein structures) is released as ammonium by slowly microbial decomposition.

The microbial biomass works additionally as a soil improvement material and supports the micro-organisms and small animals which are living in the soil.

Application:

Nutrient lacking soils in horticulture and landscaping, recultivation of virgin soils of road and rail embankments, hydroseeding, forestry, grassing of skiruns, fertilization of athletic grounds and parks. During the whole period of grass growing. The best time is short before longer periods of rainfall. For trees during time of planting. One time 50 to 250 g/m² depending on location and type of soil.

Effect:

Stimulation of the humus formation, activation of the microbial soil life, activation of the plant development, increase of plants´ hardiness, stimulation of the hardiness of the plants, long-lasting nutrient supply of the plants. Microbial bio-mass of soil fungi and bacteria. Mix of dried granules and powder, size of grain 3 to 5 mm, sterilized.

iGGvital SC

iGGvital SG is based on a special liquid polymer combined with auxiliaries such as wetting agents, driers (accelerating oxygen uptake) and defoaming agents. iGGvital SG is emulsified in water and than spray-applied to the surface to be protected where it penetrates up to 20 mm in depth, depending on the absorbency of the soil substrate.

After its application, iGGvital SG reacts with atmospheric oxygen and within a few hours a firm, water-insoluble network is formed. As a result all wet particles such as sand grains, fertilizer, seed and other materials become bound to the surface.

The cured iGGvital SG does not seal the surface of the soil, indeed the soil absorbency for rain is fully maintained by the open matrix-like character of its bound (stabilized) structure. Germination and plant growth remain unimpaired.

Effect:

Fixsation of seed, fertilizer and soil amendments on the surface of the soil, a network of long-chained polybutadiene molecules fixes together the soil particles, the fixation cover is absolutly water permeable, the network is slowly reduced by ultraviolet radiation, the hydrocarbons are declined into carbon dioxide and water.

Field of application:

grassing of virgin soils, dust binding of fine-grained surfaces.

Time of application:

All time, but not during heavy rainfall, when snow on the ground, with frost in the soil.

iGGvital SG

 

iGGvital HM hydromulch consists of long wood fibers (softwood) and is applied using a FiNN HydroSeeder®. Combined with an adhesive, for example iGGvital SF or iGGvital SG, as well as seeds, iGGvital LF fertilizer and iGGvital SC soil activator, a temporary protective layer is sprayed over the erosion-prone ground. This layer protects the seeds until germination and ensures good fixation of the seeds and the soil. As a second skin it protects the soil from drying out as well as against water and wind erosion. iGGvital HM is biodegradable.

Effect:

iGGvital HM serves three functions in erosion control with hydroseeding:

1. Protection of the soil from wind and water erosion as well as sun radiation during germination and first establishment. The high water absorption capacity of iGGvital HM reduces surface runoff.

2. Protection of the seeds as well as better and faster germination. Due to the high water storage capacity of iGGvital HM the seeds are protected from dehydration, nutrients are stored for longer in the top layer of the soil and a growth promoting microclimate is created.

3. Simple application and constant product improvement thanks to the cooperative product development with manufacturers of hydroseeders. iGGvital HM is a user-friendly product that can easily be mixed with other additives for hydroseeding. The green colored version of iGGvital HM facilitates an even and uniform application of the spray mass and provides a visually appealing sight after completing the work until the vegetation has established itself.

Depending on the type of soil and weather conditions, the effect of iGGvital HM lasts up to six months.

iGGvital wood fiber mulch

The particular feature of iGGvital SF is the combination of soil reinforcement and stabilizer in one product. It is made of polyacrylamides (PAM) and used as an adhesive for hydroseeding. These characteristics prevent soil erosion from (rain)water and simultaneously improve soil permeability.

iGGvital SF is completely harmless for soil and water. It is decomposed naturally by UV radiation and microorganisms living in the soil. It decays into CO2, H2O and ammonium nitrate. The nitrogen group of molecules is quickly absorbed by the microorganisms present in the soil. The carbon group composts 10 to 15 % per year depending on the UV radiation.

Application:

iGGvital SF can be used over the course of an entire year. It is used as aggregates for hydroseeding.

Effect:

Using iGGvital SF improves the adhesive capacity of the spray mass on the soil. The use of iGGvital SF reduces erosion due to rainwater by an average of 95 %. Additionally the soil porosity is improved and that way an even water infiltration into the soil is ensured. It ensures uniform water infiltration in the soil. On silty, loamy soil the porosity increases by + 35 % and on silty, sandy soil by + 50 %. In addition, the porosity and stability of the soil which is improved by iGGvital SF leads to an increase of the germination rate of sensitive seedlings of up to 35 %. Depending on the type of soil and weather conditions, the effect of iGGvital SF lasts up to six months.

Composition:

iGGvital SF is a white powder and consists of water soluble anionic polymers.

Packaging:

1 kg/bag or 25 kg/bag
