Areas Repaired Top Deck Parking Repair - Terminal 3, Pearson Airport
Repair Types Concrete Cracks Floor Repair
Issues Extensive surface cracks developed. Whole slab surface was proposed to be replaced

Project Description

The surface of the concrete had a lot of cracks, which are marked in blue in the pictures.

A conventional method called for demolition of the floors surface and casting of new concrete.

After general surface cleaning, the large cracks were ¼ inch saw cut to clear the cavity of all debris.

The cracks were filled in with Polyforce Plus and Sand mix.

The entire surface was treated with a roll on application of Polyforce Hardener for increased protection. The thin molecular structure of this polymer material allows for a deep concreted permeation.
This application turns the top 15 millimeters of the concrete surface into a composite polymer material impermeable to moisture and shielded from the elements.

The surface was finished with a simple concrete polish / shave.

Even though the concrete looks exposed, Polyforce Hardener, which resides underneath of the surface, provides a long lasting much needed protection.

Technical Details


In accordance with third-party testing, the repaired surfaces are rated to the following:

Polyforce Plus

  • 25 years of useful life
  • 0% water permeation
  • Polyforce Plus is rated to expand and contract with concrete
  • The entire surface and volume of the slab is "monolithic"
  • Compressive strength of 85 MPa
  • Polyforce Plus mixed with Basalt reaches a compressive strength of 150 MPa
  • Adhesive strength of 1.85 MPa (original concrete has only 1.2 MPa of a tensile strength, so the bond is stronger than the concrete itself)
  • Repair is 60% cost of a traditional repair
