Traffic Coatings Experts in the Upper Midwest
Traffic coatings are designed to lock out harmful moisture. Traffic-bearing waterproofing systems, whether for vehicular or pedestrian traffic, significantly lower maintenance costs, prolong the life of substrates, and prevent scaling and spalling by providing excellent crack-bridging capabilities to prevent leaks in parking garages, stadiums, balconies, pedestrian walkways, plazas, and mechanical rooms.
In the Upper Midwest, using traffic coatings to provide waterproofing and crack-bridging protection is particularly important given the extreme climate conditions. In this region, moisture, combined with chlorides used in deicing chemicals, can leak into or soak through the concrete. Once it reaches the steel, the salt causes expansive corrosion and rusting of re-bar that will result in unsightly, destructive, and costly deterioration of the structure. During freeze/thaw cycles, water can also cause damage to concrete decks as it expands and contracts.
Exterior Building Services (EBS) is Minnesota’s choice for traffic coatings, including vehicular, pedestrian and mechanical room applications. No matter what type of traffic coating is used, EBS prepares each surface to exacting standards before application to ensure the substrate is free of all incompatible compounds or contaminants, so the product adheres properly the first time and will provide years of protection. Our crews are trained and certified in all the products we use and we draw on our expertise in this area to make every traffic coating project a success.
A full line-up of traffic coatings to protect wearing surfaces like concrete from vehicular traffic abrasion, and in the case of concrete, protection from freeze-thaw damage and chloride induced corrosion with its destructive force on reinforcing steel.
Our durable coatings are designed to withstand the rigors of passenger cars and heavy vehicles, as well as extreme weather and UV radiation, our vehicular traffic coatings are available in epoxy, elastomeric and urethane formulations.
Mechanical & Equipment Room
A specialized floor coating to waterproof and protect concrete in a mechanical or equipment room can provide a safe work environment. Improve non-slip floors while preventing chemical interaction with concrete flooring.
Ideal for manufacturing facilities, warehouses, mechanics shops, aircraft hangers, clean rooms, pharmaceutical labs, and storage areas.
Pedestrian traffic coatings are ideal for walkways, bridges, outdoors areas, or in parking structures and are available in several finishes. Available in epoxy, elastomeric and urethane varieties, our pedestrian traffic coatings offer a durable wear surface that is slip-resistant and UV-stable.
Common applications include parking ramps, plazas, courtyards, pedestrian bridges, and stadiums.
