Spalling & Freeze/Thaw

DualGuard and VersaGuard with InnerCreteTM Membrane Technology are the solution to eliminating spalling and freeze/thaw by improving concrete durability, increasing surface resistance to abrasion and eliminating moisture and water penetration. 

If left untreated, concrete surfaces in high traffic areas or areas exposed to drastically changing temperatures, quickly cracks, delaminates and deteriorates over time.

Using Protocol Products – with InnerCreteTM Membrane Technology;

  • Creates a permanent, impermeable barrier that prevents water and moisture penetration.
  • Improves resistance to surface abrasion, delamination and erosion.
  • Improves resistance to environmental factors (ie. freezing temperatures)
  • Improves resistance to chemical attack, which reduces concrete delamination, and deterioration
  • Improves bonding of paste to the aggregrate.
  • Strengthens the concrete minimizing future hairline cracking
  • Maintains breathability

APPLICATIONS

All Protocol Products are for use:

  • Indoor / Outdoor
  • Above and Below Ground
  • Vertical, Horizontal and Ceiling Surfaces

Both VersaGuard and DualGuard utilize InnerCreteTM Membrane Technology which creates a permanent impermeable protection membrane within concrete.  Each product, however, is uniquely designed to suit specific applications.  Because maintenance requirements vary depending on application, check the suitability of each product to ensure compatibility with the intended use.

CHOOSING A PRODUCT

VersaGuard 42 For use on concrete which will / may have paint or a coating                  applied.  This product can be used in high-traffic areas subject to the pooling of liquids on the surface, however normal precautions must still be followed.
DualGuard 45 For use on concrete which will retain a natural surface, yet has the addition of a super surface repellant for visual water “beading.”  For use in applications that would normally use a surface sealer but with increased durability and longevity of the concrete mass.  Caution should be used when treating high traffic areas as pooling of the liquids on the surface could be a slipping hazard.
