W. R. Meadows announced Intraguard, a water-based, penetrating concrete sealing compound for exterior concrete surfaces specifically designed to limit the intrusion of moisture and chlorides into concrete surfaces. Its proprietary blend of silane and siloxane penetrates deeply into the pores of concrete to help protect it from scaling caused by deicing salts. Intraguard’s clear sealing properties provides weatherproofing and offers protection to virtually all exterior concrete surfaces including driveways, walkways and parking lots.
The product is designed to provide lasting protection from de-icing chemicals and moisture intrusion. Surfaces treated with Intraguard will also be resistant to staining from oils, fuels and common chemicals.
One of Intraguard’s major benefits includes its material that does not form a film but penetrates into the surface to form an integral barrier to moisture penetration. It also reduces the entrapment of dirt particles and other contaminants that cause discoloration and inhibits soiling, protects against efflorescence, rust staining, and is water-based and VOC-compliant.
“The use of Intraguard improves concrete’s durability, especially when exposed to deicing salts and freeze thaw environments,” says Glenn Tench, director of marketing at W. R. Meadows. “The proprietary blend of active ingredients penetrates into concrete to provide superior protection.”
