The Duraguard Pedestrian Balcony System is designed to provide tough, waterproof protection on interior and exterior concrete surfaces subjected to pedestrian traffic such as walkways, decks, balconies, roofs, and light traffic areas. System thickness is a nominal, 60 mills (DFT) exclusive primer and aggregate. Duraguard’s advanced single-component chemical-cure technology is used as the building block to produce coatings that are the highest quality available. Because they are single component, no on-site blending is required. Being chemically-cured, no out-gassing is produced during cure. This enables the products to be installed in heavier single-coat millages and to cure faster in colder temperatures.
The Duraguard Pedestrian Traffic Normal Duty Standard System is built-up using only two products: Duraprime 100 and Durathane 50. Duraprime 100 is a two-component epoxy primer designed to penetrate and adhere to concrete. The bond strength developed by Duraprime 100 exceeds the tensile strength of the concrete substrate, which by definition is the highest adhesion value attainable.
Durathane 50 is a single-component, chemical-cure urethane elastomer. This product has both toughness of high tensile strength (3000 psi) and Shore “A” hardness (75 min.) and flexibility with an elongation rating of 400%. With these properties, Durathane 50 is flexible enough to be used as a base coat while tough enough to be used for the aggregate and lock coats, as well. Accelerator 50 may be added to Durathane 50 for rapid turn around systems, increased cure rates of an individual application step, or for systems installed at colder temperatures.
