HERE ARE FIVE REASONS TO USE CONCRETE HYDROGELS FOR CIVIL INFRASTRUCTURE MAINTENANCE

Aquron concrete hydrogel treatments are the advanced approach to preserving concrete service life. Binding the moisture within the concrete, preventing ingress of contaminants, and enhancing the concrete’s durability – the Aquron family is proven to preserve and protect concrete for the long term. Make hydrogel treatments part of your pro-active maintenance program.
 

REASON 1 – COST EFFECTIVE FOR THE LONG TERM

Aquron treatments save costs in two significant ways:

  • No need to factor in future treatments.
  • Genuine protection of the structure’s service life, and reduction of ongoing maintenance costs.

This makes Aquron treatment genuinely cost-effective as compared to other remediation methods.
 

REASON 2 – TIME-SAVING

Aquron spray-applied treatments are trafficable 1 hour after application.
Using Aquron as a sealer? How long before you can move about on acrylic sealers, or silanes?
If you’re treating a structure such as a bridge or wharf, this reduced downtime can mean genuine cost saving.
 

REASON 3 – IMMOBILISES MOISTURE

Moisture is a vehicle for contaminants in concrete. Reactants, dissolved in water, seep through the porosity and cause harmful reactions with both the concrete and reinforcing steel.
 
Immobilising moisture is a key factor in arresting concrete deterioration. This is a benefit which surface coatings cannot provide.
 

REASON 4 – ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE

Aquron treatments are NIL VOC.
There are no fumes nor toxins. The products are water based.
This makes them user friendly, and inoffensive to other workers in the area.
For bridges and wharves over sensitive waterways, Aquron is ideal, and has been successfully used on a number of projects where this was a crucial factor.
 

REASON 5 – SUPPLY AND APPLICATION AVAILABLE
