Urethane/epoxy blend that resists wear due to impacting of vehicular loadings, and resists cracking at low temperatures.
Smidcrete® Elastomeric Concrete is a specially engineered material used for nosing applications alongside expansion joint systems, or as a durable filler material for patching concrete substrates. The material is a urethane/epoxy blend that resists wear due to impacting of vehicular loadings, and resists cracking at low temperatures.
Smidcrete® outperforms traditional nosing materials such as concrete, epoxies and asphalt. These materials historically showed breakdowns due to cracking, and allowed moisture and salts to penetrate the concrete surrounding the expansion joint system. The moisture and salt traveled down through the joint opening to the structure's support members and directly caused premature deterioration of those members.
Smidcrete® technology has a 10 year track record of excellent performance. It anchors the Mercedes line of expansion joint membrane products. The product list includes applications with the CS (Chambered Seal) Series, the SM (Single-Ply Membrane) Series, the AR (Aluminum Rail System) Series, the SCP (Seismic Cover Plate) and SR (Steel Rail) systems.
