Armor Guard Concrete Primer-
This is a low viscosity, water tolerant primer/sealer with excellent adhesion properties designed to soak into pores and provide a waterproof bond. This product remains flexible and will seal cracks and voids, as well as expand and contract with the foundation. Armor Guard primer has proven to be an excellent waterproofing membrane by itself or as a base for the other products. All other Armor Guard epoxy polymer products will bond to the concrete primer. The primer can also be used to soak the fiberglass mats if flexibility is desired in such instances as wood or thin steel structures.
Newlander Armor Products, Build Epoxy Polymer-
This is the product that is normally used to soak the thicker fiberglass, carbon fiber, or Aramid mats used to create an impervious shell. Below grade walls subject to hydrostatic pressure, bowed walls, safe rooms, and bomb shelters can all benefit from the combined strength of this extremely strong resin and hardener combination.
Newlander Armor Products Basement Coating-
This is the titanium reinforced top coat epoxy polymer. Titanium dioxide and titanium flakes migrate to the surface as the thermosetting polymer cools and lay on the surface like shingles on a roof to create an impermeable surface. When applied, it is this titanium that seals against moisture and gasses such as radon.
These special polymers have been formulated with extreme anti-microbial properties and can even be fortified with Microban™ for even superior resistance. Microban™ is a patented anti-microbial that has been approved for usage in Oceanearing Research & Development’s basement coatings. Microban™ is also presently added to only the highest quality spa shells and filters to provide permanent protection against microbes and bacteria. Microban™ can be added to any Armor Guard product. Armor Guard Basement Coatings come in white, tan, and three shades of grey.
This is the thickened epoxy polymer used to attach fittings, wall studs, panels, or anything that needs to be held on a coated wall or floor. The mix comes premixed in any color or opaque and will bond to virtually any surface as well as all the Armor Guard products. Trowel mix hardens and adheres underwater and can be fortified with fiberglass strands for added strength. Clear hardeners are used when colors are necessary and the standard Build hardener is used for base coats, or the primer hardener can be used for extreme flexibility.
This mix is the fiberglass strands that can be added to trowel mix for increased strength or to bridge voids and cracks.
The standard basement is a 3 oz. bi-axal weave which wets out easily and can be used in single coat applications.
A 24 oz. woven roving is a structural mat that is a geometrically square weave. This mat wraps around corners and radii well and wets out easily. This mat is best used for irregular surfaces.
An 18oz. and 24ox. Stitch mat is a very strong structural amt, geometrical on one side and bi-axel on the other, with polyethylene strands woven inside. These are thick mats developed by Oceanearing for extreme strength. When combined with the epoxy polymers, these mats produce impervious structures to form basements, exponentially increasing the structural strength. These mats provide more strength than steel or concrete piers while, at the same time retaining some flexibility should the foundation move. When bonded with the wall, these mats can prevent cave-ins, bowed walls; they can provide explosion resistance; and they can provide hurricane and tornado resistance; the mats also protection from hydrostatic pressure.
Armor Guard Clear Hardener-
This is a crystal clear hardener that can be used with the New Build Resin (which is clear) to create the clear see-through coatings used over carbon fiber and Kevlar mats. This is the hardener used for the colored trowel mixes, epoxy stone, and quartz finishes. This is an extremely durable hardener and is used to form clear walls and aquariums.
This is a decorative quartz aggregate used as a finish coat to achieve a dramatic effect. Whether troweled on or pneumatically applied, it provides an attractive look. Single colors and combinations are available.
This is the pebble surfacing for floors which uses Oceanearing Research & Development’s epoxy polymer. Many attractive looks are possible and the epoxy polymer is much stronger than any other epoxy stone available on the market today. The good news is that it can be applied indoors with virtually no odor and over virtually any surface. Patterns and color combinations are available for endless possibilities.
