Waterproofing System, Coating Debuts

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2015


Gaco Western has added new elastomeric coating and system to its line of concrete deck products.                              

The GacoQRSDeck waterproofing system is a seamless, protective membrane that adheres and cures quickly, the company reports.

The system uses the new GacoFlex U61, billed as a two-component, polyaspartic fast-cure coating, along with the existing GacoFlex E5990, a penetrating epoxy sealer, according to the company.

Gaco Western says its GacoFlex U61 is an elastomeric coating intended primarily for use as a liquid-applied waterproofing coating for concrete decking. It is designed for areas where pedestrians and vehicles must be able to return to use quickly, the company notes.

Typical applications for the coating are above-grade interior or exterior concrete slabs; parking garages; balconies and patios; plaza decks; walkways; and rooftop recreation areas, Gaco Western says.

The company says benefits of the coating include its ability to be applied in a wide range of temperatures; its color and gloss retention; and chemical resistence.

Further, GacoFlex U61 is South Coast Air Quality Management District compliant, the company adds.
