Product Description

DuPont™ Plantex® Cocomat combines the technical advantages of Plantex ® weed control fabric with the aesthetics of natural coconut fibres.

Erosion and weed control in a single fabric: Plantex ® Cocomat prevents the growth of weeds, keeps moisture in the soil and allows the soil to breathe. It offers the ideal solution for steep slopes. Unlike mulch the natural coconut fibres cannot be washed away by heavy rain as they are firmly bound to the Plantex® weed fabric.

Plantex ® Cocomat can be used in orchards and ornamental gardens as well as in vegetable gardens.
Fruits and vegetables growing close to the ground, such as strawberries, courgettes, tomatoes, pumpkins, do not come into contact with either the ground or the often used mulching films.

Plantex® Cocomat lasts for several years.

Advantages

  • Immediate protection against wind / water erosion and weed control in a single fabric
  • Natural look of product
  • Prevents drying out of the soil
  • Water, air and nutrient permeable
  • Recyclable

Lifetime

  • The coconut fibres will change the color from brown to grey in 1 to 2 years. This is not an indication of fibre degradation.
  • If exposed to the sun,  it may maintain performance up to 3-5 years, typically sufficient to protect plants during their initial growth period from erosion and weeds. Over time, the rotting of the coco fibres contributes to humus soil creation.
  • If the growing area provides shading, this can enhance the weed and erosion control performance period.

Installation
The installation of DuPontTM Plantex® Cocomat is quick and easy, we recommend the following instructions. The material can be cut into the required dimensions by scissors or cutters. When the installation is complete, the plants can be planted by simple cross cutting into DuPontTM Plantex® Cocomat.
If used for erosion control in slopes applications, the plant growth is critical to the erosion protection performance of the fabric. It is therefore recommended to place the fabric in spring or summer during the vegetation period. It is crucial to ensure the fabric is laid down and fixed properly on the soil (good contact) to avoid a flushing and protect the vegetation.

  1. Prepare the soil, remove existing weed and level the soil if necessary. Unroll Plantex® Cocomat on the soil.

  2. Fix Plantex® Cocomat with pins, if using several runs, overlap at least 10 cm. It is recommended to place the overlap against the wind direction.Fabric shall be fixed at embankment foot and crown. If used on steep slopes, fabric shall also be fixed at regular intervals using adequate fixing pins.
