Water$ave Hydro-Tac


A tackifier is an adhesive compound used in hydroseeding (or hydromulching). Acting as a 'glue' it can be a resin based or a polymer based mixture used to increase the 'tack' or stickiness of the hydroseed mulch to be mixed, this may contain water, seeds & fertilisers. This hydromulch 'mix' is then pumped over the area to be treated.


Hydroseeding is a land reclamation process often used on cleared, steep or damaged land that uses a slurry of seeds, dyes & mulch. The slurry is transported & applied via a water tank or IBC then sprayed over the ground in a uniform layer to promote the new growth of native plants preventing air pollution, soil erosion & undue water runoff.



Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a specific linear polyacrylamide, called PAM. Using PAM tackifiers is one best ways to hydroseed; retaining more moisture in the mulch to keep it in place & prevents messy applications without 'splashing' onto embankments, paths & roadways.


Water$ave Hydro-Tac does not 'glue' the mulch to the soil. It actually hydrates & conglomerates the soil particles, making them bigger & heavier. Therefore making it much more difficult to displace on embankments, damaged land & hillsides making it perfect for steep slopes.


'Organic' tackifiers such as guar gum will 'tack' only for a short time (usually before the roots & soil have established properly) & do not retain water at all therefore not all seeds will germinate & develop evenly, leading to further soil erosion.


Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a specific polyacrylamide (or PAM) tackifier that last longer & at lower application rates produce the same 'tack' as organic tackifiers.


Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a 'stand alone' tackifier that does not necessarily require mulch or additives. It is a blend of specific lineal polyacrylamides for hydroseeding projects that retain moisture & soil structures for longer time periods than other polymer tackifiers. Note: For general hydroseeding in urban areas & road embankments Water$ave Hydro may be suitable.


Water$ave Hydro-Tac is an excellent 'straw tackifier' that is designed to break down as the plants' root systems penetrate & hold the soil structures in place. Highly effective in the young regrowth of trees, shrubs, bushes & saplings to assist in revegetation & reforestation especially in dry & remote locations.
