Concrete over time will become dull and become prone to cracks and corrosion. It is highly recommended and beneficial to resurface and bring back a fresh new layer. Slab Jacking is a great affordable way to fill and repair and seal cracked concrete, miss-aligned joints, and fill gaps. extremely beneficial on driveways, roads, and highways.
What we do
Griding is considered before applying any finishes. This helps create a smooth textured finish that will allow our coatings to apply with ease. Also beneficial to achieve the correct surface profile. We have the equipment to get the job done!
The products we use to inject into the base soils surrounding the impacted concrete spot. Expands and easily expands in the affected area. Additional benefits include:
- Not affected by water
- Not affected by wet conditions, areas, and more
- Expands up to 25% of its initial volume.
- Environmentally friendly
What we use
Polyurea is a type of elastomer that is derived from the reaction product of an isocyanate component and a synthetic resin blend component through step-growth polymerization. The isocyanate can be aromatic or aliphaticin nature. It can be monomer, polymer, or any variant reaction of isocyanates, quasi-prepolymer or a prepolymer. The prepolymer, or quasi-prepolymer, can be made of an amine-terminated polymer resin, or a hydroxyl-terminated polymer resin.
The resin blend may be made up of amine-terminated polymer resins, and/or amine-terminated chain extenders. The amine-terminated polymer resins do not have any intentional hydroxyl moieties. Any hydroxyls are the result of incomplete conversion to the amine-terminated polymer resins. The resin blend may also contain additives or non-primary components. These additives may contain hydroxyls, such as pre-dispersed pigments in a polyol carrier. Normally, the resin blend does not contain a catalyst(s). via Wikipedia
Epoxy coatings are a great option if you are looking for tough and attractive flooring. They combine polymer resins and hardeners that result in a chemical bond with the concrete. Plus, there are many colors and decorative options to choose from.
The benefits of using an epoxy coating are:
- Provides great durability on a surface than paint and holds up in areas of impact
- Quick installation and easy maintenance
- Can be applied in various use cases in both residential and commercial
- Vibrant finishes and a lot more to chose from depending on the clients desire
- Easy to clean and keep clean
Polyaspartic chemistry was first introduced in the early 1990s making it a relatively new technology. The patents were issued to Bayer in Germany and Miles Corporation in the United States. Pure polyurea reacts extremely quickly making them almost unusable without plural component spray equipment. Polyaspartic technology utilizes a partially blocked amine to react more slowly with the isocyanates and thus produce a modified polyurea. The amine/diamine or even triamine functional coreactant for aliphatic polyisocyanate is typically reacted with a maleate. Polyaspartic esters (PAE) as they are often called, initially found use in conventional solvent-borne two-component polyurethane coatings. Via wikipedia.
Urethane is a sealer that is used to protect many types of products, but is most often usedto seal decorative concrete and stone. Many polyurethane items are also referred to as urethane. These sealers provide a barrier to protect wood, concrete and other items from heat, excessive cold and moisture.excessive cold and moisture.
