Texas – GSG Distribution, a Texas-based concrete distribution company that serves the Southwest Region of the United States, including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, and Mississippi, this week had a case study for one of their distributed products, SCP 327, released regarding the Texas A&M University Center for Infrastructure Renewal.
To be one of the nation’s highest ranked, state of the art facilities dedicated to the research of concrete, the Center of Infrastructure Renewal will use the Spray-Lock Concrete Protection 327 to drastically reduce surface cracking in exposed polished concrete areas.
“SCP will permanently prevent moisture related issues in areas to receive flooring in the center, as well as prevent any cracking in exposed areas,” said Brandon Thomas, Director of Sales at GSG Distribution. “The SCP is also being utilized on the rooftop concrete to provide a rapid cure, saving time in the entire construction process.”
It has been found that SCP 327 will provide a better alternative to a 28-day water ponding, while also offering same-day, within one hour, access to the slab. This internal cure will therefore reduce shrinkage of the slab, which in most cases contributes to the surface cracking.
“With SCP 327, any flooring or coating can be placed in only 14-days from the time of pour,” said Mr. Thomas. “It’s a curing medium, hardener, densifier, and concrete waterproofing product all in one. Additionally, SCP 327 also eliminates slab curl, efflorescence, surface cracking, spalling and freeze-thaw damage. We are excited to see the finished result for this new innovative center.”
The world-class Center for Infrastructure Renewal will feature laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology to study Pavement Materials, Corrosion, Materials Evaluation, Electric Power Grid, Pipeline System Integrity, and Infrastructure Systems.
