SCP 327 and 578 greatly reduce maintenance for outdoor concrete structures.
SCP’s technology has been used to protect and preserve concrete in numerous successful applications.
The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga hosts an average of 650 000 visitors annually, making
maintenance of its sidewalks and pedestrian bridges a priority.
Additionally, many of the aquarium’s
sidewalks are located above important underground attractions and facilities. SCP 578 was applied
to waterproof the sidewalks to prevent water leaks to these underground facilities. Meanwhile, SCP 327 was used on a new concrete slab at time-of-placement in the Tennessee
Aquarium’s cold room to prevent freeze-thaw damage. 72 hours after application on this slab, the
temperature was lowered to freezing range with excellent results. Months later, inspection revealed
no surface cracks.
Nearby, Southern Adventist University and The McCallie School used SCP 327 at entrances and on sidewalks to obtain better curing and prevent de-icing chemical damage, in addition to improving maintenance, sustainability and wear resistance.
SCP327 and 578 Benefits:
- Reduces freeze-thaw damage
- Reduces de-icing chemical damage
- Reduces budgets and expenditures for ongoing maintenance of pedestrian bridges and sidewalks
