Recyclex - the first permanent erosion control mat made from 100% recycled post-consumer goods "green soda bottles". That is right, there are 20 green soda bottles in every pound of Recyclex turf reinforcement mats. American Excelsior Company invented the first biodegradable blanket, and we have done the same with recycled fibers to create Recyclex. Not only is Recyclex environmentally responsible, it is designed to meet your most difficult erosion control challenges. For long term permanent erosion control, Recyclex is the answer.

Recyclex is made from 100% recycled fibers with 80% or more 6 inches in length or greater. The fibers are crimped to allow a strong, curled, interlocking fiber matrix. Sound familiar to Curlex excelsior fibers? Absolutely! Just as Curlex fibers have been the most successful biodegradable matrix since we invented erosion control blankets, we applied the same concept to our permanent Recyclex Turf Reinforcement Matting. Our crimped fibers conform to terrain details and train water flow to follow the Recyclex curled fiber matrix. In turn, water flow velocity is reduced. Recyclex fibers have a specific gravity of greater than one, meaning the matrix will not float in a hydraulic event. Recyclex fibers are stitched together by two strong layers of UV resistant polypropylene netting to form a three dimensional matrix, designed to provide permanent surface support for vegetation and structural root systems. Recyclex can be installed as an erosion control blanket by placing it over grass seed and topsoil or it can be soil filled and seeded to allow a structural root system to grow directly into the permanent turf reinforcement matting.
