Aqua Guard 3200 Underwater Sealant  – Now Potable Water Compliant – AS/NZS 4020:2005

ABEP are proud to announce that our Aqua Guard 3200 Underwater Sealant has now been approved for drinking water applications.  It can be used for crack and patch repairs where exposed product area to volume of water ratios do not exceed 1000mm²/Litre at 20°C ± 2℃.

The significance of this certification is that not only is 3200 now safe to be applied in water storage tanks used for drinking water but that it is safe to be applied and cured underwater.

There is now no need to drain away costly large volumes of water in order to repair a leak and in the case of local body water authorities, they is also now no need to manage town water supplies when one tank is out of commission during leak repairs.

Successful Flood Protection Trial – Christchurch, New Zealand

During the earthquakes over the last 36 months in Christchurch the land in the Flockton basin subsided leaving many homes vulnerable to flood waters in heavy rain events.  A series of major storms over the last 12 months has highlighted the need to urgently address this issue for the large number of home owners in the effected suburbs.

A local task force was put together to explore practical but affordable solutions which resulted in ABEP’s Blue Barrier system being selected for a ‘tanking’ (waterproofing just above the level of frequent flooding) trial.

On 9/10 July ABEP contractors prepared the home and applied Blue Barrier Joint Filler and Blue Barrier Liquid Flashing to the test home selected by the authorities.

A bunding was then setup to surround the house and water introduced to and held over for a three day period.

ABEP are proud to announce that the Blue Barrier products performed as expected and in conjunction with flood doors provided by another company water was prevented from entering the home.

Reports are currently being generated for the consideration of affected home owners, the Christchurch Council and Insurance companies for their consideration and determination of how to move forward with this flood mitigation solution.

The trial made headline News around New Zealand.

Dominus Innovations Launches BEP Blue Barrier in New Zealand and Australia

Tampa, FL – June 23, 2013 Dominus Innovations manufacturers of BEP Blue Barrier, a liquid applied air and moisture building envelope protection system, today announced the launch of the BEP Blue Barrier family of products in New Zealand and Australia. ABEP Ltd. (Australasian Building Envelope Protection, Ltd.), distributors for BEP Blue Barrier in the region, unveiled the industry leading air and moisture protection system at the 2013 BuildNZ / Designex Show in Auckland on June 23rd.

Tim Gregory-Hunt, President of ABEP Ltd. said, “We have been looking for a product like Blue Barrier for the Australasian market for some time. When we first started testing the products in 2012 we were amazed at the physical characteristics of the technology and recognized the role that these products could play in both new construction and the retro market throughout the region. The repair costs associated with the infiltration of unwanted moisture and mold into building structures in this country has resulted in retro costs of record proportions. BEP Blue Barrier will not only play a significant role in the cost effective repair of existing building structures, but the use of the BEP Blue Barrier system in new construction will improve overall building energy efficiency as well as protect the building envelope against unwanted air, moisture and mold.”

BEP Blue Barrier is a thin mil, liquid applied, breathable weather barrier system available in a complete family of products for total wall and building envelope protection and for window and door installations. The BEP line consists of Blue Barrier Liquid Flashing, Blue Barrier Joint Filler, spray applied Blue Barrier Liquid Wrap and a roller grade Blue Barrier Flash ‘N Wrap RG.

Gerry Chastelet, CEO of Dominus Innovations commented, “We are excited about launching BEP Blue Barrier in Australasia and partnering with ABEP Ltd as our representatives for the region. The climatic conditions facing the New Zealand and Australian building trades make this an ideal market for the BEP advanced technology. The easy to apply, Blue Barrier air and moisture barrier system is specifically designed for application to a wide range of substrates, and the superior shore hardness of the product makes it an ideal window and door installation weatherization solution.”
