To treat the elevated parking decks and exterior walkways with a premium water repellent. Aquapel Plus was used because of its easy application, deep penetration and long-lasting protection against salt laden ocean breezes and subsequent corrosion due to chloride ion contamination. Aquapel Plus is water based, odorless and an environmental-friendly product that has been proven safe to use
Even tough this structure is located in a temperate climate, ocean breezes bring along recordable levels of chloride ion in the form of mists from the sea. Aquapel Plus provides long-lasting protection of the concrete reinforcing steel through an effective chloride ion screen that can be relied upon with a properly installed coat of Aquapel Plus. Aquapel Plus' active ingredients are new generation silane/siloxane molecular blended water repellents which provide deep penetration along with excellent surface perimeter protection from water and chloride ion penetration without film formation.
