Product QA And Certification Xypex
Global GreenTag
Xypex products have achieved certification via one of the largest product sustainability certification systems in Australia...GLOBAL GREENTAGCertTM.

Xypex Admix C-1000 NF and C-5000, Xypex Modified and Xypex Concentrate are certified by GreenTag, the only Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) recognised Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) approved product rating Certification Mark in the sector.

The GreenTag Certification system is an 'umbrella' certification system i.e. incorporating both:
  • Life Cycle Assessment 'LCA Rate' (for all products); and
  • 'Green rate' (for Green Star and Living Building Challenge certification only)
GreenTag uses 6 key criteria, including 'Cradle to end-of-life-fate' LCA to derive an Eco point score and the GreenTag rating. This approach allows purchasers to identify and compare GreenTag Certified products to determine which is BEST.

The GreenTag certification endorses all four of the Xypex products named above as environmentally preferable and therefore suitable for consideration into applications for buildings with Green Star Ratings in accordance with the Green Building Council of Australia requirements.

The endorsement by GreenTag highlights the progressive nature of Xypex Australia, it's industry leadership, and it's recognition of the importance of sustainability and the reduction of Greenhouse gas emissions.

The products have been assessed for toxicity through one of the world's most comprehensive screens, and as having design and manufacturing attributes which directly reduce the environmental load when used compared to similar concrete waterproofing and protection products available.

CarbonRATE™ is Global GreenTag's unique carbon emission certification program. Xypex Australia submitted five products to the program to each undergo a full LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) process to produce their CarbonRate™ results and improve on their carbon emissions.

GreenTag’s CarbonRATE™ program scientifically identifies a product’s carbon impact and environmental protection index involving a third-party peer review process. The process provides a product with highly visible carbon performance graphics, including real carbon metrics to instantly communicate a product's climate performance in relation to emission reduction initiatives.

Through CarbonRATE™ certification, professional built environment bodies, likes architectural firms and construction companies can fully understand the energy-consuming and carbon-consuming links of products. They can better facilitate low-carbon management, save energy, reduce consumption, and save on production costs.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS, formally RTA) - NSW

"Acceptance of Xypex Products as Admixtures"

RMS has accepted Xypex Admix C-Series as a recommended concrete admixture on RMS funded works.

Acceptance Letter
Australian Standards - AS 1478.1:2000

Chemical Admixture for Concrete, for Special Purpose Normal Setting (Type SN) Admixture

Xypex Admix C-Series is compliant with the requirements of AS 1478.1 - 2000 "Chemical Admixtures for Concrete, for Special Purpose Normal Setting (Type SN) Admixture"

It should be noted that compliance under these Special Purpose types does not guarantee performance attributes outside the scope of AS 1478.1 (i.e. Waterproofing). Compliance does give some assurance that the Xypex Admix C - Series does not have any detrimental effect on the plastic and hardened state of the concrete and provides the industry with an assurance regarding its inclusion and performance in concrete mixes.
