Parking garages, in everyday life, are exposed to immense mechanical stress. However, their safety and restoration are often an afterthought. The durability of such parking spaces is at the helm of a functional society. Garages require top and inter-layer resistant coatings which can render them a longer shelf life and lower maintenance costs.
Concrete or asphalt structures are typically at high risk due to water penetration
Concrete or asphalt structures are typically at high risk due to water penetration. If water is allowe to sit or penetrate asphalt surfaces, the weakening of the asphalt bonds may cause potholes or cracks. Parking garages require impervious bond coats that do not allow for water seepage. The role of a bond coat is also to protect the surface beneath from natural wear and tear. Because of this, parking spaces are most receptive to temporal corrosion if not maintained adequately. However, most bond coats readily available in the market lack structural integrity and wither away just after a few years. While current design protocols call for monolithic structures (where all the layers are separate but bonded), parking garages are increasingly suffering from the issue of delamination, a process where layers of concrete start to separate. This is often caused or accelerate by water intrusion into concrete cracks.
BaseCrete secures parking garages and other similar surfaces through initial protection and subsequent garage patching. It is a smart investment which reaps clients benefits in not just the present but also the distant future. The waterproofing membrane protects surfaces from water ingress which can lead to corrosion, over time. However, unlike other similar products, Basecrete does not take days to dry. With a nominal 12-hour cure time, only a thin layer (1/16th of an inch) layer is require to secure the floor for a very long time, making BaseCrete one of the most sought-after bond coats in the market. It also protects concrete from delaminating and itself does not separate into layers over time.
BaseCrete has high in tensile strength and can easily absorb mechanical stress put on the surface through constant vehicular traffic. It is a quintessential element in garage maintenance. Additionally, independent movement of layers of the garage could potentially lead to the development of cracks along the interior and exterior of the surface. BaseCrete is not just the best garage floor crack filler but also an adhesive that holds layers of the concrete/asphalt together. It binds them together to prevent movement within, while distributing stress shock equally across layers.
BaseCrete removes the need for garage refinishing at short intervals of time. Due to its resistance to most chemicals, acids and corrosive materials, a thin layer lasts for many years. The material elongates the structural life of the concrete beneath with fewer requirements of interventions. It shields the garage floor from natural corrosion. It can also be use as a garage concrete crack filler and for patching asphalt driveways. With its high durability and anti-corrosive properties, it can remove any added need for touch ups to the surface. Hence, BaseCrete does not just save the concrete/asphalt surface but also reduces long-term maintenance costs.
