Salt spray, wind abrasion, continuous moisture changes and freeze-thaw conditions are among the harsh conditions that structural concrete must withstand in maritime environments. Eventually, structural repairs will be required, and the remediation plan will need to address these durability issues. SCP 743 can extend the life of concrete.
SCP 743 rescues Life Saving Clubhouse that was exposed to almost 50-years of salt and wind attack in a severe marine environment.
The Mentone Life Saving Clubhouse was built in 1963. For almost 50 years, the concrete structure incurred rainwater intrusion and salt attack, as well as prolonged leaks. Significant investments were unsuccessfully made into various crack repair technologies, cathodic protection and other solutions.
In 2010, the Club Council turned to SCP 743 technology. A single application of SCP 743 was applied to the entire roof before the structural cracks were filled with an elastomeric crack sealer and the water leaks ceased.
