Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free solution for weed control. Its patented low-pressure process combines heat with biodegradable foam, making it ideal for any contractor, council or organisation looking to reduce, if not remove, the use of herbicides.

Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free weed control solution for outdoor spaces across the world. It is a patented process combining hot water and environmentally friendly foam made from natural plant oils and sugars including wheat, maize, potatoes, rapeseed and coconut oil. It provides organisations and individuals with the best alternative solution in the herbicide-free space as well as overcoming certain functional limitations that glyphosate has.

Foamstream has been developed to be more than just a weed solution. Along with controlling weeds, moss and algae it can be used for outdoor cleaning tasks such as gum removal, power washing and sanitisation and has been approved as an EPA biocide.

The benefits of Foamstream

  • Safe for use around people, animals and delicate environments
  • Lowest cost solution in the herbicide-free space

             – High efficacy and lowest number of treatment cycles per year

             – Sterilises seeds and spores to reduce total weed growth in an area over time

  • Suitable for use on all surfaces – from soft porous, like historic monuments, through to hard and artificial surfaces like sports tracks/playgrounds, astroturf, cobbles, steps, furniture, etc.
  • Year-round use – its application is not affected by the weather unlike other alternative solutions and also glyphosate.
  • Multi-functional – it can be used to control vegetation (weeds, moss and algae) but also for street cleaning tasks such as power washing, gum removal and sanitation.
  • Very fast set-up and use with no ongoing operator training or certification.

How Foamstream’s Functionality differs from Glyphosate

  • Foamstream can be used to treat in all weathers, on any surface, all year round (reducing costs attributed to downtime and allowing better planning of labour resources).
  • Foamstram doesn’t need to have ongoing operator certification to training
  • Foamstream doesn’t require the operator to wear protective clothing
  • Foamstream delivers instantly visible results
  • Foamstream is a herbicide-free solution
