Urethane Modified ConcreteCASTORCRETE® Urethane Cement Mortar

Urethane Modified Concrete

Urethane Modified Concrete is a high-strength, high-barrier floor coating system. Urethane modified concrete is designed for use in the most demanding food and beverage processing areas where high resistance to impact, abrasion and chemical resistance to organic food acids is required. The product is a modified urethane with Portland cement, water, aggregate and other fine materials.

The Urethane Modified Concrete system is double the strength of concrete and can be installed in thicknesses varying from 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch. It is also self-leveling and can be laid as a stand-alone product or decorative quartz/flake. This coating can also be installed with additional topcoats to provide for additional wear protection or non-skid properties.

CASTORCRETE® Urethane Cement Mortar has outstanding chemical resistance to most solvents, acids, alkalis, hot oils and animal by-products. CastorCrete® is designed to protect existing concrete or resurface moderately deteriorated concrete. It can withstand aggressive physical exposure to heavy-duty abrasion and impact, thermal shock and thermal cycling, steam cleaning, heavy traffic and forklift traffic.

ESD Control Flooring for Electronics Industries

Electrostatic discharge, ESD, is the sudden spontaneous transfer of electric current. An example of ESD that we are all familiar with is walking across a carpet and touching a door knob. It takes about 20,000 volts to jump one centimeter.

Copy machines, computers, medical and communications equipment are all susceptible to ESD. This can happen without personnel even knowing its taking place. The micro-miniaturization of electronics has intensified ESD sensitivity. Manufacturers can no longer design special circuit protectors into their devices. These can be damaged by as little as 25 volts.

ESD can trigger two types of failures: catastrophic and latent. Catastrophic failures result in a component failing testing. Latent failures are caused by discharge not large enough to trigger a complete failure but can still weaken the component. This often allows the component to pass testing and the mysteriously fail during use. Ninety percent of all failures are latent failures.

Concrete Densification for Industrial Applications

Ashford Formula densification system has been used to seal over 55 million square feet in the Denver warehouse market over the past 30 years. Densifiers chemically harden concrete flooring, hardening the floor from the inside out. The great benefits of concrete densification: reduced dusting, higher gloss readings, increased abrasion resistance, and a longer lifespan of the concrete floor. A concrete floor treated with Ashford Formula will be 32% harder within the first 30 minutes of treatment. The treated concrete will continue to harden over time.

  • A chemically reactive liquid that penetrates the concrete, solidifying the concrete surface components into a solid mass.
  • Chemically hardens the concrete surface, increasing the abrasion resistance by 32%. 
  • Combines with calcium hydroxide, becoming an integral part of the concrete, dust-proofing the surface.
  • Reacts instantly, chemically stabilizing the finished concrete surface.
  • Accelerates and enhances hydration of the Portland cement, helping the concrete reach its design properties.
  • Over time, treated floors develop a wax-like sheen. Machine-troweled concrete self-polishes.
  • Routine surface cleaning is all that is required for long-term maintenance.
