Tactifier compounds are used in adhesives to increase their tack and adhesion. Tactifiers are an important step of hydro-seeding that follows after weeding, seeding and fertilizing.
Our hydro-seeding tactifiers are created to reduce the effect of wind and water erosion of soil. They increase soil stabilization by improving the soil-fiber and fiber-fiber adhesion.
Advantages of Hydro-seeding Tactifiers
Some key advantages of hydro-seeding tactifier are –
Improve soil stabilization;
Reduce soil erosion due to water;
Reduce soil erosion due to wind;
Improve soil adhesion between fiber and soil;
Helps in steep-slope cultivation;
And dust control.
Do You Need Hydro-seeding Tactifiers?
The basic function of tactifiers is to act as a lubricant to encourage a smooth flow of the slurry during the hydro-seeding. This also helps remove any chance of clogging in hoses while you are applying hydro-seeding. With no coagulation formed in the slurry, it is easy to ensure its uniform distribution.
During Hydro-seeding, seeds, mulch and fertilizer are combined, the mixture of which is later applied to the ground surface. Tactifiers help attain extra adhesion and put erosion to control. Hydro-seeding tactifiers are used on construction sites. When left empty for long periods of time, these tactifiers save the soil from erosion by wind and water.
The hydro-seeding tactifiers are used to stabilize the ground temporarily while no new project is being made on it. They can withstand most weather conditions like rain, a wide range of temperatures, snow, high-speed winds, and sloped surfaces as well.
Plant roots keep the soil in its place. However, when there are no plants on the soil, the risk of erosion increases many times. Hydro-seeding tactifiers are the most economical way to create erosion-proof
Types of Tackifiers
Guar: Guar is a natural tactifier derived from guar plant’s ground endosperm.
Psyllium: Psyllium tactifier is very commonly used in hydro-seeding. Also known as plant ago, it is applied in either dry or wet form to the soil surface. It forms an effective adhesive when dissolved with slurry.
Starch: Starch is an effective control for erosion. It minimizes erosion by stabilizing the mulch on the soil.
The ones mentioned above are plant-based tactifiers. Some commonly used polymeric tactifiers include acrylic polymers, liquid polymers, and polymers of acrylates, methacrylates, and acrylamides.
