CONNIFLEX

Conniflex is the new, effective and environmental friendly coating protecting the forestry seedling against pine weevil attacks. Conniflex can simply be described as an armor of sand applied to the stem of seedling. The specially developed and water-based glue is used to guarantee that sand sticks to the stem. The treatment is completed in the drying unit for hardening of the glue.
