New Mortar Designed for Concrete Repair


An Illinois-based manufacturer has developed a new epoxy resin mortar made to repair concrete floors and surfaces as well as protect them from chemical damage.

Concrex Acid Strength, from Watco Industrial Flooring, of Vernon Hills, is a concrete repair patch that is made specifically to fill holes caused by chemical damage. The company says the new product provides chemical resistance, even up to 95 percent sulfuric acid..

Watco says the product can stand up to salts, chemicals with chlorides, fertilizers, and acids including nitric, hydrochloric and sulfuric, which can damage concrete surfaces such as factory and warehouse floors.

The new product is an addition to Watco’s established Concrex line of epoxy resin mortars. Concrex Acid Strength cures in 8 hours for light traffic, according to the company, and the area can be returned to full service in 16 hours.
