Toronto Pearson International Airport - Terminal 1 Taxiway

Toronto Pearson International Airport
June 2014
Areas Repaired Concrete Patching - Pearson Airport, Air side
Repair Types Concrete repair

Project Description

The repair was done with a mix of Polyforce Plus and Sand.
Following a general cleaning of the area with a metal brush drill attachment, the spalling was filled.

The repair took 30 minutes with 4.5 hours of curing time after the repair.

A unique quality of Polyforce Plus is the ability to work at less than 1 millimeter thickness at 100% output. This means that the material could be finished flush with the spalling without any demolition work to the repaired area.

The conventional repair with concrete would involve cutting at least 1 inch deep into the slab. This would be extremely expensive and would require closure of the area for an extended period of time.

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
