The Foundation of Our Products
The Matrix, as we call it, is the foundation for manufacturing our products. It has a high tensile and tear
strength making it strong enough to handle coastal marine environments and its open cell design allows for sedimentation and plant root growth, creating an ideal environment for growing vegetation.
• The Matrix is manufactured with 100% recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic drinking bottles. Water Based Latex Resins are used in the matrix manufacturing process. No phenol-formaldehyde resins are used in the binding process. The Matrix has been tested and was found to be non-toxic to aquatic life.
• The polyester matrix fibers (PET) are non-reactive and resistant to attack by micro-organisms. PET is inert, won’t biologically degrade and will not leach. PET is also inherently more UV resistant than other plastics, like polypropylene, because of its molecular structure.
• Our products are also coated with polyurea.
The polyurea coating is perfect for marine environments because it is inert, and will not hydrolyze, leach or contaminate. It provides UV protection, contains no VOCs and is direct food contact approved.
REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE
At Martin Ecosystems, we are committed to improving and protecting our environment. By using recycled material to manufacture our products, we prevent thousands of plastic bottles from entering landfills each year. Being good stewards of the earth's resources is simply our responsibility.
