CuTex Copper Japanese Knotweed Root Barrier

Product Code: 170UR4252-PRO

CuTex Copper root barrier is ideal for the management of Japanese Knotweed and other tough to control species, suitable for many applications as root guard as it is equally effect in a vertical and horizontal use to prevent root ingress and damage.

Cutex is exceptionally effective against agressive plant species such as Japanese Knotweed and Bamboo. It is ideal for use in challenging environments such as construction and industrial redevelopment sites.

The CuTex Copper Root Barrier is a Geocomposite root barrier system consisting of a copper sheet mechanically encapsulated between a woven polypropylene geotextile and a high strength nonwoven polypropylene geotextile. The copper acts as a signal layer that all plants avert their growth from. The copper foil only releases minute quantities of the copper ion. These do not constitute an ecosystem burden, or impact on groundwater. Plant shoot/root primordia (growth tips) are averse to growing into the vicinity of copper concentrations. In essence, the roots/shoots turn their growth in a different direction when confronted with the copper foil. These principles make CuTex a suitable barrier for Japanese Knotweed growth as well as all other plants.
