Engineered Fiber Matrix is mixed at a rate of 60 pounds per 100 gallons of water
Engineered Fiber Matrix (EFM) has been specially designed to be mixed in a low ratio of water to product.
Follow the EFM Loading Chart and Application Guide closely. Not mixing enough EFM will water-down
the slurry and compromise coverage during application and the performance of the formulation.
Application / Loading Procedures
A.
Strictly comply with equipment
Manufacturer’s installation instructions and
recommendations. Use approved hydro-spraying
machines with fan-type nozzle (50-degree tip)
whenever possible to achieve best soil coverage.
Apply from opposing directions to assure
100% soil surface coverage. Slope interruption
devices or water diversion techniques are
recommended when slope lengths exceed the
maximum recommendations as shown in the
Slope Application and Slope Interruption Limits
tables on the back page of these guidelines.
B. T
o ensure proper application rates, measure and
stake area. For maximum performance, apply
EFM as follows:1
1. A
pply fertilizer with specified prescriptive
agronomic formulations, seed and EFM
at a rate of 60 pounds per 100 gallons
(27 kg/379 liters) of water over properly
prepared surfaces.
2. S
ee loading chart on the back and confirm
loading rates with equipment manufacturer.
Do not leave seeded surfaces unprotected,
especially if precipitation is imminent.
C.Fill 1/3 of mechanically agitated hydroseeder
with water. Turn pump on for 15 seconds and
purge and pre-wet lines. Turn pump off.
D.Turn agitator on, open recirculation valve and
load low density materials first (i.e. seed).2
E. C
ontinue slowly filling tank with water while
loading fiber matrix into tank.
F. C
onsult loading chart on the back to determine
the number of bags to be added for desired area
and application rate.
G. E
FM should be completely loaded before water
level reaches 75% of the top of tank.
H. A
dd fertilizer as water level approaches the top
of the tank.
I.
Top off with water and mix until all fiber is
fully broken apart and hydrated (minimum
of 10 minutes — increase mixing time when
applying in cold conditions). This is very
important to fully activate the bonding additives
and to obtain proper viscosity.
J. S
hut off recirculation valve to minimize potential
for air entrainment within the slurry.
K. S
low down agitator and start applying with a
50-degree fan tip nozzle.
L.Spray in opposing directions for maximum
soil coverage.
Best results and more rapid curing are achieved at temperatures exceeding 60°F (15°C). Curing times may be accelerated in high
temperature, low humidity, and windy conditions with product applied on dry soils.

Additional Notes:
• Rough surfaces (rocky terrain, cat tracks, ripped soils, etc.) may require additional product to achieve 100% coverage.
• Be sure to allow for residual material in tank on subsequent applications.
