The Tornado Tack Straw Tack-1000 is an all-in-one tackifier.

| March 13, 2014

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. — Profile Products introduces the first in its line of Tornado Tack products: the Straw Tack-1000 — a new, all-in-one, high-loading straw tackifier. Tornado Tack ST-1000 gives contractors twice the coverage of a traditional blended mulch and tackifier while providing the strongest environmentally safe bond. It features a high-loading formulation and 500 pounds-per-acre application rate.

"Tornado Tack is engineered to save contractors time on the jobsite through fewer loads per job and frees them up to earn more money each day," said Adam Dibble, senior marketing manager for Profile Products. "Tornado Tack is proven to perform on the ground so contractors know the job will get done right the first time."

Tornado Tack can be loaded at up to 70 pounds per 100 gallons to yield double the coverage of traditional blended mulch and tackifier. A 3,000-gallon tank can cover up to four acres. Its all-in-one package means easier loading and storage, so there is never a need to transport multiple products to the jobsite for field mixing.

In addition to a base composition of wood cellulose fiber, Tornado Tack contains patented interlocking fibers and porous ceramic particles that combine with the  tackifier providing superior bulk density and bond strength to the ground. This composition lengthens the functional longevity of the straw and prevents it from blowing or washing away. Tornado Tack is also biodegradable, making it the safe alternative to asphalt emulsion binder.
