Erosion Control Polymers (PAM’s)
Applied Polymer Systems is the only company in the world that manufactures these specific types of erosion control and water clarification products. Also, we’ve had our products tested by universities, water management districts and Department of Transportation groups who have proven them to work and proven them safe for the environment.
Silt Stop® emulsion or powder products and Floc Log® gel blocks are specifically tailored for each soil type and water chemistry. These products help to alleviate erosion while encouraging the growth of vegetation.
Typical BMPs, such as detention basins, check dams and perimeter erosion controls alone are generally ineffective for removal of colloidal suspension of turbidity from storm water runoff. USDA test data indicates that soil specific polyacrylamide has been a beneficial agent for soil erosion control. Reduced sediment, pesticide and nutrient loading to riparian areas can ultimately be expected using polyacrylamide on construction projects.
A basic soil test can determine the appropriate polymer for each job site. Please feel free to call our office to set up a soil test.
