Alchemco waterproofing agent wins a Most Innovative Product award at World of Concrete
Alchemco’s TechCrete 2500 Waterproofing Agent was voted Most Innovative Product in the Concrete Materials Category, at the 2020 World of Concrete Convention (MIP2020). The MIP2020 is the only annual award program honouring innovative new products designed for all segments of the concrete and masonry industries.
TechCrete 2500 Waterproofing Agent
Alchemco says the agent is a two-fold time saver. It is a one-time application and the company says it is easy and fast to apply. One treatment lasts the design life of the concrete structure. TechCrete 2500 is non-toxic, 100 per cent trafficable, and tolerates thermal stresses. This environmentally friendly waterproofing solution can qualify for either a 15-year or 30-year labour and material watertight warranty, when applied by an Alchemco Certified Contractor.
How does it work?
“Water is almost always involved in the premature deterioration of concrete” says Peter Kesser, Alchemco’s global sales director. “However TechCrete 2500’s unique formula works with water to continually reactivate our waterproofing products inside the concrete. That is one of the features that makes TechCrete 2500 a truly unique product in the marketplace”.
Concrete waterproofing products
Alchemco says its solutions protect the concrete from the inside. The 30-year watertight labour and material warranty that Alchemco offers, can be confidently offered because of the performance that TechCrete 2500 Waterproofing Agent has exhibited for more than 4o years around the globe.
“A common misconception among owners and facility managers, is that concrete will last forever without needing any additional protection; however, concrete structures just like anything else, must be properly protected & maintained in order to survive for the full-term of their designed lifespan,” says Kerston Russell, Alchemco technical director.
