U-Coat Polymer Powder Applications for Concrete

Polymer powder applications for use with PolySteel/Con-GFS Pro17 or PolyAqua

Concrete is a complex material that breaks down when exposed to normal environmental conditions. At the casting stage, concrete is sensitive to climatic changes and absorbs gases present in the atmosphere. Additionally, It should not be overlooked that concrete “breathes”. Therefore, it expands and shrinks with seasonable moisture and temperature variations. As a result, this often causes cracking problems. Other negative characteristics of concrete are a non-uniform, changing surface, as well as the typical porousness of the finished body. PolyCon polymer powder applications can provide a long-lasting friction micro-overlay that can restore old pavements to new friction standards. Additionally, it can provide new asphalt surfaces with friction and wear. For example, this is done through the integration of properly graded aggregates into the surface material. PolyCon is made of specially sized aggregate, enriched composite powder, and polymers.

PolyCon-GFS Pro 17 will not work without first applying Damp Seal
