Advanced Marine Preservation has extensive experience with dealing with the effects of chloride corrosion and other contaminants on concrete structures and flooring due to exposure to harsh environments – especially in marine applications. However, this is the case with most industrial maintenance applications for flooring and foundation structures, as well. AMP offers a wide range of concrete coating solutions to satisfy most any requirement or regulation to cover waterproofing, non-skid surfacing, chemical containment and the latest Federal regulations such as for LEED certifications.
There are numerous concrete coating products that fall within the categories of epoxies, acrylics, urethanes and even advanced specialized formulas to target any concrete coating requirement imaginable. We also have access to products that present aesthetically pleasing colors and textures to enhance the appearance of your concrete surface.
For marine applications, Advanced Marine Preservation’s solutions are geared towards extending the service life of concrete surfaces by sealing the exterior to prevent chloride corrosion that not only protects the integrity of the concrete itself, but also the underlying foundation steel support structure. These are specifically applicable to docks, bulkheads, and bridge supports.
The development of advanced concrete coating products over the last 20 years has made marine-based surface preparation and resealing of concrete a much more effective and viable solution over having to rebuild concrete structures themselves. A big advance is the ability of coating products to be used with inherent marine conditions such as damp substrates and even water immersion – especially when it comes to working within tidal influences. They are formulated to cure within a few hours almost immediately increasing the protection to the structure as well as decreasing down time for productivity.
Other industrial applications refer to concrete manufacturing plant flooring, smokestack and tank foundations, water treatment plants, dam structures and more. Exposure to heavy machinery such as forklifts, pollutants and chemicals are usually the major causes for repair and protection in these situations. Safety concerns are also a factor where non-skid coating of concrete surfaces apply.
The bottom line to using Advanced Marine Preservation is finding a solution that will repair and extend the life of your concrete structure or flooring without having to replace the concrete flooring or structure itself. We are experts in what needs to be done to prepare the surface and apply the right coating product and use of equipment for a long-term protective finish and appearance to your concrete flooring or structure.
