If you own or maintain a parking deck or garage, you know taking care of it can be hard. Letting maintenance slip on a garage can result in a bad appearance and issues with the integrity of the building. You want your structure to look great and perform well over time. Parking in an attractive, well-maintained parking garage sets people at ease. It sends a visual signal that they’re both in a well-maintained garage and that they’re in a safe place.
Tecnorap USA believes that every parking garage should be able to look and perform its best during its lifetime. We designed our unique sub-surface concrete waterproofing and protection products with that in mind. We understand that parking garages have to handle foot traffic, vehicle traffic, and weather damage every day. This can severely wear down concrete down over time.
That heavy wear often leads to water penetration. When water penetrates the concrete of your garage, it causes a host of issues. It can cause cracks, ugly mineral stains, and can react with the underlying rebar, eroding it. All of these factors accelerate the wearing process further, shaving years off of the life of your garage. At Tecnorap USA, we want to make your parking garage last.
Tecnorap USA provides two different options to your parking garage needs. Our Radcon Formula #7® and CWS Admix products both offer ways to combat the wear your parking garage can undergo over time.
We designed Radcon Formula #7 to provide a lasting seal to your concrete surfaces. Concrete can develop hairline fractures over time. On the surface, these aren’t so bad. But they can be the first step in your parking garage running into real problems. Hairline cracks can allow for moisture to penetrate below the concrete surface, where it can further erode concrete and rebar.
Traditional concrete sealants provide a quick fix to this, covering the water entry point. But over time, traffic and chemical wearing will wear off this sealant. Radcon Formula #7® solved this problem by rethinking how sealants work. Our mixture seals hairline cracks from the inside and creates a waterproof barrier in the process. When you seal cracks with Radcon Formula #7®, nothing can wear it away. That saves you time and money in the long run.
Our CWS Admix product works to prevent water penetration problems before they can occur. We recognized the value of having the strength of concrete made even stronger by true waterproofing. CWS Admix is blend of moisture-activated chemicals, high-grade fine aggregates, and selected high-performance cements. It can be applied to the surface of old concrete or added into the mixture for new concrete. The crystalline chain reaction that occurs when mixing in CWS Admix lets it make a permanent watertight seal. This ensures that your parking garage is safe against water damage now and in the future.
We’ve used our products in a variety of places and situations, and they always work. We’re so sure you’ll be satisfied that we include a 20 year warranty with your purchase. If you want to give your parking garage a lasting advantage against wear and tear, contact us or call us at (804) 330-6438.
