Project Description

Underground Garage

The front entrance of the underground garage had concrete delamination, and cracks. 

The area was cleaned, grinded and damaged concrete removed.  Then the area was coated with Polyforce Plus Floor Coating.

Roof slabs

After removing the existing leaking membrane and surface cleaning, the concrete was treated with an application of Polyforce Plus. The application provides waterproofing monolithic membrane as well as a structural repair.

Drain Basins

The seal around the drain basin was deteriorated which caused concrete deterioration and leaks into apartments below. The concrete surface around the basin was treated with Polyforce Plus for increased waterproofing. The area around the basin pipe was injected with Polyforce Plus to seal the gap. A fiberglass sheet, treated with Polyforce Plus, was applied as a top armoring coat for long lasting results.

Ceiling concrete repairs

The paint and damaged concrete was removed from the ceiling and the concrete surface was cleaned. Polyforce Plus was applied as a patch material in all the areas in need of repair.
 

Technical Details

Polyforce Plus Adhesive
The use of specialized product, Polyforce Plus Adhesive, permits restoration of the carrying capacity of the slab through monolithic concrete patching and crack repair, providing an alternative to complete slab recasting.

Polyforce Plus coating is tested to provide 25 years of freeze and thaw waterproofing with no degradation and water permeation. This material is rated to expand and contract with concrete, ensuring long-lasting adhesion of concrete patches due to its impressive 1.85 MPa adhesive strength (compared to 1.2 MPa tensile strength of the original concrete). This makes the patch and the old concrete slab work as one. 

Polyforce Plus, when mixed with basalt, achieves compressive strength of 150 MPa, making it ideal for surfaces that suffer high mechanical intrusion or increased and prolonged exposure to light acids..
Versatility of application and high strength of installation produce significant cost savings, when compared to traditional concrete repairs. 

Polyforce Polymer Cement
Polymer Cement was designed for fast and thin patch applications. When combining patch application of Polymer Cement with high-strength industrial concrete adhesives, many applications which would otherwise be too expensive to execute become cost-effective and feasible. Most typical applications include valley resurfacing, slope reversals, crack repair patches, and stair and balcony repairs. 

Polymer Cement is designed to perform in thicknesses ranging from 0.01 inches to 0.25 and beyond. The material performs at 99% dry finish volume. 

Polyforce Plus Primer
High-strength concrete primer is designed for two purposes: concrete waterproofing membrane and primer adhesive layer. 

Surface application of Polyforce Primer provides Waterproof Concrete Embedded Membrane rated to withstand 25 years of freeze and thaw cycles.

Increased adhesive qualities of the primer eliminate surface debonding of top coat paint application. Polyforce Plus, when mixed with basalt, achieves compressive strength of 150 MPa, making it ideal for surfaces that suffer high mechanical intrusion or increased and prolonged exposure to light acids.
Versatility of application and high strength of installation produce significant cost savings, when compared to traditional concrete repairs.
