A new cementitious patch and overlay for highways and infrastructure boasts flexibility without failure, offering high-tensile strain capacity and bond strength.

Whether applied to concrete, steel, asphalt or wood, Elephant Armor from GST International is designed not to crack, the company says. The product can also be applied over existing cracks to prevent them from re-cracking, according to GST.

Elephant Armor

GST says the product has a life of 100 years and resists chemicals, UV rays and abrasion.

Three Varieties 

Elephant Armor is available in three formulations: 

  • High Performance Mortar, for patch and repair use on bridges, parking structures, tunnels, dams, industrial plants, and other areas where high-strength concrete repair mortar is needed;
  • DOT Industrial Grade, for runways or roads that need a quick return to service; and
  • Asphalt Patch, for permanent asphalt patching repairs, maintenance or new construction.
