Concrete Repairs & Waterproofing Services – F.A.Q.

How can I repair a concrete crack?

How can I repair a concrete crack?

Our crack injection systems seal the water passage on either dry or wet cracks or joints. We do this in order to provide a waterproof curtain behind the structural envelope. Specifically this happens to stop water leaking into the structure. Moreover our solutions include the closing, the sealing and the bridging of leaking cracks in new and existing concrete structures. Please contact us today to request an onsite visit from our specialists to provide you with a solution.

How can I waterproof a cold joint?

How can I waterproof a cold joint?

Effective Joint Sealing is mandatory to ensure the functionality and durability of any building. Although joint sealing represents a small fraction of the total construction cost, it is often responsible for ensuring weather tightness. This in turn is critical to maintain a solid water pool. Therefore our solutions include different approaches for complex issues of water leakages in aquariums and swimming pools. Please contact us today to request an onsite visit from our specialists. We are able to provide you with a solution.

Cracking and failed joints in concrete structures may happen due to a range of factors. These could be settlement, thermal stresses, faulty workmanship and daily use of the facility. When these cracks are water bearing, they can either compromise the structure or limit the use of its area.

Acrylic Polishing Services – F.A.Q.

Why Acrylic vs Glass?

Why Acrylic vs Glass?

Acrylic Panel Strength:

Acrylic is 16 times stronger than glass. Seams are bonded on a molecular level as opposed to being “glued” together, as they are with a glass tank and silicone.

Acrylic Panel Weight:

Acrylic weighs half of the weight of a similarly sized glass panel. Usually, the dead load of the aquarium structure is restrictive due to the structural limits of the floor slab. Acrylic panels are far less heavy and easier to install than glass panels.

Acrylic Panel Clarity:

High quality cast acrylic panels provide the best viewing properties to any other available glass panel. Glass aquariums, with the exception of Low Iron Glass/ Extra Chiarro or Extra Clear Glass, have around 70% light transmission and have a green tint to them. The thicker the glass the more obvious the green tint is. Acrylic is optically clear and has around 95% light transmission. Moreover, acrylic has the same light refraction index as water does which creates the illusion that the acrylic panels are thinner than their actual thickness. Lastly, acrylic has no haze and has minimal magnification in comparison to standard glass panels.

Acrylic Panel Insulation:

Acrylic is a far better insulator than glass. It is considered approximately 20% more efficient than glass in aquariums. Aquarium inhabitants will live in a more stable environment which means healthier & happier fish, inverts, and/or corals.

Acrylic Panel Repairability:

Acrylic panels get scratched easily. First off, through proper cleaning procedures, regular maintenance, and having a tank built to appropriate specifications (meaning not “underbuilt” as so many mass produced tanks are) it is unlikely to experience many scratches. However, the process for repairing the scratches is more simple and quick than many people are aware. Scratches on the outside can be very quickly repaired with a few standard tools (i.e. varying grades of sandpaper, electric drill, buffing wheel, and compounds). On the wet side, we perform the repair by air drill so we dont to drain the aquarium or remove any livestock!! Varying grades of sandpaper and MicroMesh will do the trick and in relatively short order as well.
