Additive to hydrate your surface

Hydrogel is an innovative additive that hydrates your surface, reduces dust and minimises the need for watering. It can rejuvenate an existing surface; by absorbing water the riding surface becomes softer which alleviates the problem of 'deadness' as well as dust.


  • Hydrate new or existing surfaces
  • Watering frequency is reduced
  • Constant slow release of water
  • Adds elasticity
