Examples of typical applications are sealing of joints in road surfaces, runways and airport hangars, sealing of construction joints in walls and floors in commercial and industrial buildings. In addition products are used for houses, water reservoirs and sewage processing structures, sealing around general household sanitary ware and certain automotive applications.
a.b.e.® Construction Chemicals was founded in 1932 but started operations in 1939 in Durban as a supplier of bitumen to municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal. a.b.e.® has over the years grown in both size and diversity to become a major supplier of specialised construction products to the building, civil engineering and building maintenance industries, supplying products directly to customers through its branch network as well as through builders’ merchants and hardware stores.
TAL’s X-Tech SuperFlow is suitably designed for application onto concrete substrates. Allow all new concrete work and screeds to cure for at least 6 weeks and 4 weeks respectively before proceeding. The substrate must be structurally sound, clean and dry and free from all traces of surface laitance and contamination such as dust, dirt, waxes, oils, bitumen, old adhesives, paint, grease, weak cement screeds, shutter release and curing agents, sealing compounds, etc. All damaged, defective, deteriorated, friable (powdery) and hollow sounding areas must be removed until a solid background is achieved. These areas must be made good before proceeding. The surface must be prepared, by captive blasting or grinding, to ensure that the aggregate in the concrete is fully exposed and open, ie to achieve a Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) of 5 or 6 (Medium Scarification).
