PBS Switch Chinking™ is a combination of all-natural biodegradable erosion sock filled with 100% weed free switchgrass. The product will decompose into elements found in nature in a reasonably short period of time. (PBS Switch Chinking™ has a field longevity warranty of 4-6 months pending acts of God).
PBS Switch Chinking™ is a white cotton sock that has been ASTM D5035-11 tested for breaking force.
The potential for PBS Switch Chinking™ to benefit the environment at a cost effective rate and do so as a sustainable resource is exceptional. Visual results
indicate that PBS Switch Chinking™ is a beneficial nutrient source for vegetation,
greatly increases porosity of soils, reestablishes beneficial biological colonies in
compacted soil, and is an effective erosion and sediment control for runoff in
storm water. There is no need to ever go back to remove this product because it
completely decomposes into nature!
