The Game Changer in Sediment & Erosion Control

Siltron® is a 3-layer composite geotextile designed to address the shortcomings of typical silt fence and super silt fence geotextile. Siltron® will be offered at a comparable installed price to super silt fence. Like CFS, Siltron® functions as a dynamic filter-ponder and beyond that grabs viscous construction site pollutants.

Siltron Features

Much higher UV resistance than typical silt fence

Can replace metal wire backed silt fences because of its strength

Extreme puncture resistance - Hand tools used to remove sediment won’t compromise the textile like typical silt fence where nicks and cuts during servicing often lead to future failures

Acts as a dynamic filter-ponder - Allows the fence to deal with dynamically changing stormwater intensity across the entire face of the composite geotextile

Available in both pre-staked bundles for trenching and master rolls for static slicing machines

Goes beyond sediment retention to sequester any viscous pollutants in the water - like motor oil, hydraulic fluid, diesel, and fitting grease from the stormwater

Siltron Highlights

According to TRI Environmental, Siltron® demonstrates the highest sediment removal rate while at the same time also demonstrating the highest seepage rateever seen in a fencing geotextile (97.8% and 1.51 gpm/ft2 respectively via ASTM 5141 test). Designed to resist blinding and keep seeping. For a dynamic filter-ponder, blinding is caused by the buildup of sediment during the transition from filter to ponder.

Although ponding exposes upper fresh high-flow surface, we still want the sediment covered lower area to pass water, but how? Two ways, first, a unique course textured 8 oz. non-woven pre-filter is specifically designed to resist blinding. Second, Siltron® exhibits a rubbery “squishiness” to the overall composite. Under hydraulic pressure Siltron® compresses but de-compresses as pressure alleviates. When a blinding slurry builds up under hydraulic pressure, as the pressure alleviates, the compressed textile snaps back (about .5mm). This snapback breaks open the slurry and seepage continues.
