Floor systems maker Flowcrete Group Ltd. has announced an improved version of its Deckshield ED coating for parking garages, as well as a new quick-curing formulation of the product.

The company says the reformulated Deckshield ED offers better protection for multi-level parking structures exposed to year-round climates and environmental conditions.

The new formulation includes a new waterproofing membrane to shield exposed decks from harsh weather and to prevent water from entering the concrete substrate, the company reports.

The new system is available in the Asia Pacific, Austrialia, India, and the Middle East.

Characteristics, Features

The low-VOC, solvent-free, flexible polyurethane deck coating also offers improved crack-bridging characteristics, the company adds, making it an "ideal" choice for suspended concrete slabs, often used in parking facility designs.

The new formula is designed to protect against "extreme" UV exposure, which ensures the coating's color retention.

"Exposed decks are subject to harsh environmental conditions all year round, including rain, sleet, snow, extreme UV, and freeze and thaw cycles," said David McNeece, business development manager for Flowcrete.

"The new Deckshield ED formula is purposely designed to cope with these conditions."

In addition to parking facilities, Deckshield ED is recommended for use on pathways, entrance and exit points and other exposed areas subject to foot and vehicular traffic, in both refurbishment and new-build projects.

The system can be applied in a wide variety of color schemes, the company says.

Quick-Cure Version

Deckshield ED Rapide is the new fast-track variant of the product.

Deckshield ED Rapide is designed for very fast application and curing, according to the Flowcrete Group.

"Ready for use just hours after installation," Deckshield ED Rapide "is designed to enable very fast application on exposed decks," the company said.

The Rapide version is based on methyl methacrylate (MMA) technology and has the same characteristics of Deckshield ED, with quicker cure, the company says.

Flowcrete is a global industrial and commercial flooring manufacturer with plants across Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa. Flowcrete is a subsidiary of Ohio-based RPM International Inc.
