DRiWATER, manufacturer of pioneering water technology, today announced the introduction of its newest product, DRiWATER HYDRO MIX. DRiWATER, known for its patented time-release irrigation products, now brings a high performance tackifying and moisture retaining product to the Erosion Control Industry. DRiWATER also announced that American Excelsior Company, the acknowledged leader in erosion control products, will be the distributor of DRiWATER HYDRO MIX and all of DRiWATER’s products through its 30 locations nationwide. The new product and strong channel of distribution along with the existing product line, establishes DRiWATER as a leading innovator in erosion control.
After extensive testing in a variety of weather conditions and types of terrain, results indicate the HYDRO MIX is a significant advancement over existing products. “I have been shooting hydroseed and mulch for 30 years and I have never seen anything that holds mulch and water in place like the DRiWATER HYDRO MIX. We witnessed such amazing results, we knew it was something we should have in our own products,” says Don Lutyens National Product Development Manager for American Excelsior Company, Earth Science Division. The DRiWATER HYDRO MIX is ideal for the full range of applications, from dust control, dry mulch tackifying, hydroseeding, hydromulching, to spraying through blankets, in sandy soil conditions, and its application is not limited by grade of slope.
The product is packaged as dry ingredients and added directly to the slurry. The dispersal is immediate and complete. It mixes like water, sprays like water, yet sticks like glue. The DRiWATER HYDRO MIX transforms liquid, allowing it to penetrate deeply into wood fibers. It not only coats the topsoil with moisture, it penetrates below the surface as well. A tackifier alone cannot do this.
“The DRiWATER HYDRO MIX is a logical extension of our developing water technology portfolio” says Joseph Paternoster, President and CEO. “We have created innovative ways to water plants in even the most remote regions of the world. This takes the process down to the level of seed germination. DRiWATER has an amazing capacity for water retention and we thought by adding it to a hydroseed mix it would maintain moisture longer for better seed germination. The penetrating and lasting moisture of the DRiWATER HYDRO MIX far exceeded our expectations, but the way it sprayed and held mulch, seed, and water in place on contact indicated we also had an extraordinary tackifier.”
DRiWATER has recognized the significance of a better tackifier to the industry and brings to market an immediately competitive product. It has superior performance yet is 100% non-toxic, a perfect combination for the green industry. This solution oriented approach to business has led to the success of the entire product line and puts DRiWATER in a class by itself as the most innovative water technology company in the world.
