PROTECTION FROM THE INSIDE OUT
PoreShield is proven to provide long-term concrete protection, not only at the surface, but deep below the surface where pre-mature damage begins, leading to cracking, separation, breaking and more.
When tested through 300 freeze/thaw cycles (ASTM 666), PoreShield dramatically outperformed the control and competition.
When put through extended ASTM 672, untreated concrete shows significant surface and interior damage, while PoreShield shows minimal surface scaling and no cracking or interior damage.
Watch to learn more about how PoreShield works below the surface to protect concrete from the inside out.
ABSORBS DEEP INTO CONCRETE PORES
In work done at Purdue University in 2011; Dr. Jason Weiss and team used fluorescent dye to show how PoreShield SME-PS fills concrete pores, preventing moisture and ion ingress.
Reduced Ion Diffusion
An independent study concluded that PoreShield reduced chloride ion diffusion by twice as much as other leading products – preventing both short and long-term damage to concrete. Review the Wisconsin DOT study to learn more.
Prevents Water Absorption
Research has shown that PoreShield reduces the amount of water absorbed, extending the life of concrete by 5x-9x.
