Plantex® Platinium helps customers claim back their land

  • 23 May 2019

DuPont is helping customers claim their land back with Plantex® Platinium, designed to battle Japanese knotweed, couch grass, horsetail, hogweed and other such damaging and aggressive plants.

This intrinsically strong, high-performance fabric eliminates the need for herbicides or mowing, while its water and air permeability help to maintain soil health, stability and drainage. It can be used for near-surface applications with an essential covering of 20cm minimum. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in multiple field tests over many years. 

Plantex® Platinium is low maintenance, working immediately and for the long-term

Once Plantex® Platinium has been correctly installed, its benefits can be appreciated immediately, and for many years to come. Visually unobtrusive, the fabric allows for a site that is clear of unwanted growth and easier to maintain. As reliably as Plantex® Platinium performs, regular inspection including of any overlap seams, is also important.

Benefits include:

  • Proven effectiveness, now with even further advanced technology
  • Only a single application required, with minimal maintenance
  • Long-term peace of mind
  • A chemical free solution to EU and UK regulations on herbicide reduction and elimination
  • Enables healthy, stable and biodiverse soil as air, nutrients and water can pass through
  • Strong and resistant to damage, tearing and fraying
  • Fast and easy installation (clear and detailed guidelines should be closely followed)
  • Lasts at least 35 years, according to the limited product warranty
  • Available in widths of 2.50 m and 5 m (the latter is ideal for reducing seams on larger sites)
  • Part of a holistic system for root and rhizome control
