The installation of externally applied FRP systems has been slow to evolve due to limitations of materials used in the field. This demonstration will show how to make the most out of the materials with efficient application methods that will save time and money.
How to properly mix, place and finish MG-Krete, a 2-component product and permanent repair material, will be demonstrated. The demonstration will show methodologies employed in horizontal, vertical, overhead and structural repairs using MG-Krete. Participants will learn the chemistry behind the product and the reason why it is a successful permanent repair material. There will be a full technical review of the product benefits.
Phoscrete is an easy-to-use, fast-setting, long-lasting Magnesium-Alumina-Liquid-Phosphate (MALP) concrete repair material for repairs in extreme environments (-15°F to +115°F). Instead of water, Phoscrete’s pre-extended dry component mixes include Liquid Phosphate Activator (Freezing Point = -20°F). Working time and set time are easily controlled by supercooling the activator in hot temperatures, and by adding fast-set admixtures in cold temperatures. The presentation will include laboratory testing, field installation, and a small installation.
The demonstration will cover the basic steps, products, and processes involved with dying and polishing concrete. The equipment, tooling, chemicals, and processes used to achieve a polished floor will be demonstrated.
EDCC is an extremely novel and first of its kind application for use primarily in the seismic retrofit of unreinforced masonry walls. This spray-on technology incorporates a highly sustainable and cost-effective mixture of recycled admixtures that have proven to be extremely effective at greatly enhancing the ductility and strength of unreinforced structures. Its ease of placement and unique flexural advantages make it very unique in the field of seismic upgrade with the potential for additional applications with other infrastructure improvements.
The demonstration will cover the use of MAPEI’s high alkaline corrosion inhibitor, Mapefer 1K and encapsulation of the repair area with Planitop 12 SR. Planitop 12 SR is a versatile, sulfate resistant, fiber-reinforced, with silica fume and corrosion inhibitor that can be applied by hand, pump, or spray on horizontal and vertical surfaces. Demonstration will show how to utilize these products in accordance with ACI Repair Application Procedures (RAP) 3, 6, and 7 as well as ICRI Guideline Nos. 310.1R and 310.2R. Demonstration will showcase a project where Planitop 12 SR was recently used to repair a Wastewater Treatment Tank.
This demonstration video will provide information and details from Commercial and Healthcare projects for scheduling, materials, manpower, methods and protection measures necessary for the installation of a moisture vapor control (MVC) system along with self-leveling underlayments (SLU) for floor finish preparation and protection.
The FRCM externally bonded Composite Strengthening Systems repair and reinforcement solution combines high-performance sprayable mortar with a carbon-fiber grid that creates a thin structural layer without significantly increasing the structure's weight or volume. With FRCM, contractors can effectively repair, protect, and strengthen concrete and masonry structures in a single application for a fraction of the installed cost of traditional shotcrete.
This demonstration will highlight the various product forms that can be integrated in a retrofit solution for extreme loading, that the product utilizes existing retrofit construction implementation practices and provides a lighter-weight retrofit solution when compared to retrofits that utilize standard or high-strength concrete solutions, and has superior multi-threat mitigation performance when compared with other concrete retrofit mitigation solutions for extreme loading events.
This demonstration covers MiraGard Granite, a water-based dual component, self-crosslinking acrylic resin binder specifically designed for use as a decorative vinyl flake broadcast system to simulate the depth and texture of natural granite stone. The product is moisture vapor permeable and can be used as a beautiful decorative topcoat over new concrete or existing concrete needing repairs whether exterior, interior, slabs-on-grade or elevated slabs. It is also rapid curing and can be completed in one day with fast return to service typically in as little as only 24 hours, and offers outstanding durability and wear resistance, UV stable for superior color retention and weathering resistance, good resistance to moisture absorption, environmentally friendly and VOC compliant and water-based for easy clean-up.
