8 Benefits to Commercial Concrete Waterproofing

Tecnorap USA’s Radcon Formula #7® product, a commercial concrete waterproofing agent, was developed out of a need we noticed in the concrete industry. Radcon is literally like no other concrete sealer on the market, as many have already experienced the proof of. What sets this product apart is its unique ability to protect concrete from the inside, rather than sit on the surface like a membrane, exposed to wear. It works by forming a calcium-silicate-hydrate gel complex once applied to the concrete. It then reacts with any moisture that penetrates cracks and pores, producing calcium carbonate to fill in all open spaces within. The gel constantly seeks out more calcium, which it gets from cement hydration, so any moisture is immediately eaten away completely.

Concrete Coating that Lasts

There are many benefits to Radcon that set it apart, so many that it’s in a class all its own. When applied to a clean, dry surface, it has been proven to be the most effective concrete coating for applications such as commercial and industrial areas, reservoirs and treatment plants, parking lots and garages, water-holding vessels, prefabricated panels and structures, bridge decks and raised freeways, airport runways, taxiways, aprons, rooftops, and podium decks.

See why this commercial concrete waterproofing agent outranks the rest.

  1. It’s 100% trafficable. Radcon requires no further protection. Since it works from inside the concrete, it can’t be worn away over time.
  2. It permanently seals cracks up to 2mm (1/16 inch) thick. Its advanced biochemical technology enables it to seal even hairline cracks, both existing and future.
  3. It tolerates thermal stresses. The gel composition isn’t rigid. No matter the climate or changing temperature, Radcon works just as effectively.
  4. It’s fast and efficient to apply. Application time depends on surface area, drying takes two to six hours, and testing is done over a three-day period.
  5. It’s backed by a 20-year warranty. That’s longer than any other concrete coating product, and double what many commercial concrete waterproofing agents provide. Though Radcon is backed by a 20-year warranty, results have offered evidence that the treatment will last the lifetime of concrete.
  6. It’s the most environmentally friendly concrete waterproofing. Radcon is a colorless, non-flammable, non-toxic, biodegradable, clear liquid that has certified suitability for potable water.
  7. It lowers risk. Faults are easy to find and fix quickly.
  8. It provides both protection and waterproofing. Membranes do waterproof, but they provide no protection. Sealers can protect, but offer no waterproofing. Radcon both protects for the long haul and provides guaranteed waterproofing.
