CANFOR Withdraws EcoFlex Product from U.S. Markets

Profile Products has announced that Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (CANFOR) has withdrawn its EcoFlex product from the United States. CANFOR’s action is a direct response to Profile’s challenge that EcoFlex violates Profile’s intellectual property rights for Flexterra Flexible Growth Medium. Currently, there are four separate patents protecting Flexterra’s technology.

Flexterra is an erosion and sediment control product that is applied hydraulically to form a blanket matrix. It is used extensively for steep slope protection, home building pads, golf course construction, fire recovery, highway construction and many other markets.
