The Solution

GREENZONE® is an insect and termite barrier technology which integrates a compressible foam substrate with bifenthrin (see picture below) creating significant savings in labour and materials to install a combined termite repellent and compressible foam layer.  The core innovation is the integration of a termite repellent into expansion joint foam which can be applied to all elements of construction that require a termite barrier in order to comply with the Building Code of Australia.

The Science

GREENZONE® is a polyethylene expansion gap flexible foam containing Bifenthrin to act as a barrier to termites, black ant and cockroaches. Bifenthrin is a pyrethroid insecticide and termiticide, a 4th generation pyrethroid, which is virtually insoluble in water (with a solubility of only 0.1 mg/l) and the longest residual termiticide currently registered on the market. Bifenthrin is a product used worldwide and is common in pesticides and termiticides – safety data is readily available (see SDS/MSDS for further information)

The manufacture of the GREENZONE® product uses an extrusion process. The process combines bifenthrin with a closed cell, cross-linked polyethylene material. As a result of the extrusion process, once the GREENZONE® product has dried it is impossible for the bifenthrin to leach out or degrade.

GREENZONE® applications

(1) PENETRATION (PIPE) WRAP APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam around pipe penetration in concrete slab construction. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite collar barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete around penetrations in one-step.

(2) CONTROL JOINT APPLICATION

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam in control joints required in concrete slab construction. By using GREENZONE® in this manner, the need to install a secondary termite fabric barrier is removed. As GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion/contraction of concrete slabs in one-step.

(3) CONCRETE INFILL SLAB APPLICATIONS

GREENZONE® is used as an expansion foam in control joints required where concrete infill slabs abut a concrete or brick wall. By using GREENZONE®, the need to install a secondary termite fabric barrier is removed. GREENZONE® provides both termite protection and addresses the expansion and contraction of concrete infill slabs.

Why use GREENZONE®?

  • GREENZONE® is an insect and termite barrier technology which integrates a compressible foam substrate with a termiticide creating significant savings in labour and materials to install a combined termite repellent and compressible foam layer.
  • GREENZONE® complies with the Building Code of Australia
  • GREENZONE® termite barrier meets the legislative requirements of local government across Victoria and in other states of Australia other than Tasmania.
  • In termite regions, it is a blanket pre-requisite to have a termite barrier installed in order to achieve a Certificate of Occupancy. In the Northern Territory the Department of Lands Planning and the Environment provide that builders must, as a minimum, comply with the termite management requirements set out in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
  • In the medium to longer term, adopting a strategy of termite exclusion, as opposed to termite treatment, has the following additional benefits:
    > Reduces the use of chemicals in the environment;
    > Reduces the cost of building management by removing the need for ongoing pest management;
    > Improves environmental health outcomes by preventing termite infestation in the first instance.
  • GREENZONE® is suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
  • Expansion joint foam being a necessity in any form of concrete construction as it allows slabs to expand and contract without cracking and protects other building elements such as plumbing during the slab pour process.
  • Increasing regulatory interest in environmentally efficient products that reduce resource use and prevent pest infestation.
