Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free solution for controlling unwanted vegetation, including weeds, moss and algae. Its patented low-pressure process combines hot water and our biodegradable foam. The foam is made from natural plant oils and sugars making it safe for use around people, animals and delicate environments.
Optional lances mean Foamstream can be used for more than just weed control. Designed for chewing gum removal, power washing and general sanitisation jobs, it is a highly effective, all-round, outdoor management system.
Committed to ensuring our products are safe and environmentally friendly for our customers, our foams have been cleared for use as organic, non-toxic and safe by many regulatory bodies around the world. Foamstream can be used unrestricted, in all of the territories in which we operate.
The active ingredient in Foamstream is the heat from the hot water. The foam insulates the hot water, ensuring the heat is not lost to the atmosphere. This ensures the heat covers the plant for long enough for it to kill or severely damage the plant.
The longer a plant is kept in the kill zone (temperatures above 57˚C) the better. By providing a layer of insulation, Foamstream holds the heat from the water in the kill zone for long enough to penetrate the leaf’s waxy outer layer, and travel down the stem and into the roots. This severely damages the plant, either killing it or causing it to die back.
Foamstream holds the plant in the kill zone for longer than any other alternative thermal method. Watch our process video here.
The crucial part of our patented Foamstream process is our biodegradable foams. These are made from natural plant oils and sugars. There are two foam blends available.
Foamstream V4 – Our original foam blend made from a combination of ingredients including wheat, maize, coconut oil, rapeseed oil and potatoes.
Foamstream plus – Our olive oil based foam blend.
