​​​​​​​​​​​​​











AREAS of EXPERTISE

  • Architectural/Decorative Concrete Hardscapes ... acid staining & concrete dyes, polymer modified cementitious overlayments and micro-toppings, textured/patterned/stamped concrete, and high performance polyaspartic aliphatic polyureas/PAP's
  • Resinous Coatings & Sealers ... water and solvent based acrylics (clear or pigmented, interior/exterior use), 100% solids Industrial Epoxy (clear, factory colors, custom colors), metallic enhanced 100% solids enhanced Industrial Epoxy (unlimited freedom of design as to color or multi-colored), aliphatic urethanes, and extensive knowledge/experience in relation to proprietary custom PAP formulation.
  • Seamless Industrial/Commercial flooring systems ... epoxy/colorquartz with our without integral cove base (Clear/100% solids Industrial Epoxy or PAP) and decorative flake/chip flooring systems (Clear/100% solids Industrial Epoxy or PAP).
  • Elastomeric/Rubberized Safety Surfaces ... seamlessly applied textured (20-30 mesh rubber granule) self-leveling liquid rubber waterproofing systems that flexes with substrate movement, is non-biodegradable, provides cushioned/impact resistant comfort, meeting the sanitary surfacing criteria of the USDA/FDA, responsibly addresses slip/fall safety concerns of OSHA & ADA guidelines.  Ideal for interior or exterior applications over various compatible substrates (wood, concrete, metal, other compatible composites). This unique type of elastomeric membrane is frequently specified for use as a seamless waterproof barrier under floor tile, cementious overlayments including those of a decorative nature, or to guard against moisture intrusion that can bring about mold/mildew.
  • Impact Resistant Safety Surfacing ... 1-3mm edpm rubber granules, binder being a flexible  UV resistant aliphatic urethane troweled seamlessly in place at approximately 3/8" to 1/2" thick, applied over concrete/wood/metal, resulting in a cushioned/impact resistant porous safety surfacing.  For playground use, rubber buffings are combined with a flexible urethane, thickness of which is mandated by how far a child could fall from the highest point, over which the standard 3/8" to 1/2" granular/urethane bonded surface is applied.
  • Epoxy Stone Surfaces ... Naturally rounded riverstone, unlimited blends of colors, combined with 100% UV resistant solids epoxies, troweled in place to create porous resurfacing systems (eliminates the hazards associated puddling water). Interior or exterior use (swimming pool decks, patios & sidewalks, driveways, etc). Can be custom designed with mosaic like logos, street numbers, contracting borders, etc.  Special custom formulated Epoxy for reseal purposes (suspends itself from surface to substrate to maintain strength, bonding to concrete beneath, and beauty.
  • Concrete Repair ... repair of cracks using epoxy, urethane grouts, and PAP.  Use of stitching dogs or plates if cracks are deemed to be structural/active.
