- Life Cycle Assessment 'LCA Rate' (for all products); and
- 'Green rate' (for Green Star and Living Building Challenge certification only)
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.
"Acceptance of Xypex Products as Admixtures"
RMS has accepted Xypex Admix C-Series as a recommended concrete admixture on RMS funded works.
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.
