Underlayment Material

Standard Flexamat is manufactured with the Aspen wood excelsior, Curlex II®. (view more information about Curlex® Blankets)  This underlayment helps encourage vegetation growth.  Click here to download Product Data Sheet for Standard Flexamat.

Flexamat Plus is manufactured with Recyclex® TRM (view more information about Recyclex® TRM) underlayment is used when a permanent backing is needed.  This product is made from recycled soda bottles (nylon fiber that will not float).  This backing will allow vegetation growth and will remain permanently as an underlayment if growth isn't present.  This backing is used primarily in arid environments, areas susceptible to drought, areas with poor soils, and shaded areas.  Click here to download Product Data Sheet for Flexamat Plus.

Flexamat® may also be manufactured with non-woven fabrics underlayment. This backing is used in instances where not possible or not desired.  Non-woven backings should be used for areas exposed to continuous flows or where sandy soils are present.  Fabrics are also used when Flexamat is installed over plastic liners. The fabric provides a protective barrier between the liner and the concrete blocks. Project requirements determine the fabric used, Flexamat can be manufactured with a wide range of non-woven fabrics.  Click here to download Product Data Sheet for Flexamat with filter fabric.

Color

Due to the specialized manufacturing process, we are unable to dye the concrete during manufacturing. Once Flexamat is installed, it may be sprayed with a concrete dye. There are a wide variety of concrete dyes available. In most cases, vegetation will cover Flexamat so the color of the product will not matter. In instances where it is manufactured with a fabric backing, the Flexamat will be visible.
