The Ultimate Concrete Protection

ChemTec Int’l, Inc. is no ordinary company. They are a huge part of the architectural and construction industries, but it is their absolute skill and expert intelligence when it comes to making advancements in chemistry, that ultimately separates them from the pack. This is a company that works to create products that are easy, effective, high-quality, economical AND environmentally safe. In fact, ChemTec is the name on industrial, commercial and individual’s lips when it comes to giving the ‘world of concrete’ a definite face-lift.

Concrete spans many areas. In fact, it is ‘decorative concrete’ that has become the hottest trend in the construction ‘biz’ in 2013. However, concrete is still – first and foremost – the ultimate foundation that needs help over time maintaining it’s solid reputation.

In order to get jobs done and get them done correctly, it is “ChemTec ONE” that the industry is talking about! This is a high performance reactive silicate concrete densifier, hardener, dealer and dust proofer – and the uses for this product are absolutely endless. From concrete warehouse and manufacturing floors to driveways, loading ramps, hanger ramps, bridge decks, parking garages, and so many more – “ChemTec ONE” is the product that’s absolutely necessary to make sure that the infrastructures of the world are well-supported.

26398248This is actually the “only reactive silicate in the world” that meets both the Ohio and Illinois Department of Transportation specifications for use on bridge decks and structures. Not only is “ChemTec ONE” permanent, but it is also extremely cost effective and offers state-of-the-art protection for concrete structures of all types.

Beginning back in 1995, ChemTec created ‘ONE’ – the must-have, high performance concrete protector. With that creation, not only did they ‘mark’ themselves as innovators behind this new chemistry, but they also proved to be experts when it comes to client services – continuing their hands-on work with owners to solve all concrete infrastructure problems. People, businesses, organizations – there are a list of investors that put their money into the world of concrete and they rely heavily on the ChemTec name. As they should, considering that the formulations and processes ChemTec creates chemically stabilize and provide the ultimate protection for concrete surfaces.

“ChemTec ONE” prevents – and, in some cases, reverses – specific areas of deterioration in facilities and structures. It seals the micro cracks of bridge decks and elevated structures like parking structures and bridge pylons.  These are just some of the issues that “ChemTec ONE” solves. And whether the project involves new or old concrete, vertical or horizontally oriented, “ChemTec ONE” is the highest-quality product that can be found to keep that concrete in ‘solid’ condition. Not to mention, it stops dusting issues and makes the floor up to 45% harder, which means far more wear and tear can be brought to the area because ChemTec has made sure to increase it’s durability a thousand-fold.

ChemTec One protecting F-35 Harrier Fighter Jet Landing PadBy penetrating the permeable zones in concrete, this process occurs; however, the concrete’s ability to ‘breathe’ remains intact. In other words, an actual  by-product in the concrete is created that offers huge benefits not available with regular sealers or coatings. We are talking massive structural enhancement by increasing compression strength, flexibility, surface hardness and mass. ChemTec formulations are water soluble and, most of all in this ‘green’ global age, are not subject to restrictive handling under the U.S. environmental regulations.

For those who may be unaware, in the world of geology the term ‘silicate’ stands for types of rock that consist of silicate minerals. A wide variety of natural silicate minerals exist in this world that have been created by melting, crystallization, and weathering, which Mother Nature takes care of. When it comes to ‘manmade’ silicates, such as concrete, it is ChemTec and their processes that have found a way to preserve them.

And seeing as that cost is one of the biggest concerns, if not the biggest, when it comes to building and construction – it is also a huge gift that ChemTec’s experts have been able to push the boundaries of chemistry to provide enormous savings when it comes to a structure’s maintenance costs. In other words, this is far more than just a ‘thin clear coating;’ the reaction that concrete has with “ChemTec ONE” fills and repairs micro cracks, solves the problem of shrinkage, while at the same time maintaining its protection far longer than any ‘normal’ coating would.

What exactly can ChemTec products do? These formulations can reduce porosity up to 90%; increase hardness of both new and deteriorated concrete; reduce water soluble chloride levels, reduce chloride penetration, offer protection from ‘attack’ by salts, solvents and mild acids, AND function as the surface contact corrosion inhibitor for steel.

And when speaking about projects, ChemTec also has a huge list of clients who have discovered “ChemTec ONE” to be the product they had to have in order to save money and gain the knowledge that they were providing people with safety and durability. From protecting a Joint Strike Fighter and F-35 Lightning II Harrier Concrete Landing Pad; to protecting select areas of the brand new, New York Yankee’s Stadium; to being the ultimate protector of the new bridge deck at Fort Washington Way in Cincinnati; to protecting the Mark Twain Bridge spanning the Mississippi River – ChemTec is everywhere.

Multiple uses, increased safety, economical savings, and completely ‘green’ products that make sure to never harm the environment – all of these facts make ChemTec the ‘ONE’ and only company to rely on from take-off to landing.

THIS is the company that holds our infrastructure together. You can bet on it!
