|Designer:||Ministry of Transportation, Poland|
|Contractor:||Various contractors (depending on project)|
|Products:||Tuff-Flex CA + Primer # 300|
|Objective:||Anti-Carbonation Protection and Waterproofing of new concrete bridges and overpasses, as well as Restoration and Protection of existing reinforced concrete bridge structures.
Tuff-Flex CA is a Highly Durable Waterproofing and Anti-Carbonation coating, excellent for protection of new, and restoration of cracked & deteriorated concrete. It is a highly flexible coating that spans fine cracks and provides an effective protection barrier against water and carbon dioxide.
Tuff-Flex CA has been used in Europe in this application since 1996 and there are more than 300 (three hundred) bridge structures protected with this superior, long-lasting coating in Poland alone, with hundreds more worldwide.
The Field Proven “life span” of Tuff-Flex CA on is in excess of 25 years, as proven by numerous applications around the Globe.
Tuff-Flex CA bridges over & seals substrate cracks due to its high elongation at ambient and even very low temperatures and delivers high-durability, cleanability (self-cleaning) due to its unique formulation.
Highly resistant to carbon dioxide diffusion, it has an exceptional resistance to UV light and delivers chemical resistance in acid environments.
Tuff-Flex CA is a breathable, economical and easy to apply coating available in a virtually limitless range of colors.
2-coat system consists of Primer # 300, followed by application of Tuff-Flex CA. to assure a continuous, pinhole free protective membrane that delivers a long-term protection, field proven for over 25 years.
