That old saying, “the proof is in the pudding” really held true recently for Eric Leone, owner of Leone Concrete Corp. of Newport, Maine.

When he called his A.H. Harris account manager, Alan Gould, and asked for an order of form release agent, Alan was getting ready to head to Eric’s project site—a new wood chip plant—to confirm that a form order arrived in full. Alan was driving there with Rob Wagner, Nox-Crete Product Group’s Northeast Division Manager, who was planning to demo a form sprayer for Eric.

Eric didn’t ask for a specific brand of form release, so, at Rob Wagner’s recommendation, Alan brought a drum of Nox-Crete’s Chembeton.

Because Eric isn’t convinced of a product’s quality until he sees it for himself, he decided to do a quick comparison test. He still had some of the form release he and his crew had been using, so he used the existing release agent—not a Nox-Crete product—on one wall, then tried Chembeton on two walls.

Building Trust

Customers put a lot of faith in A.H. Harris to recommend products and present them with innovative solutions. That trust exists because A.H. Harris is truly invested in all of its business relationships.

Alan Gould, A.H. Harris account manager in Maine, said he believes in becoming a business partner with customers and manufacturers. And Eric Leone, owner of Leone Concrete Corp. in Newport, Maine, definitely agrees that Alan and A.H. Harris are partners, as well as problem solvers.

“The big thing with A.H. Harris is that so much of what we do in cast-in-place and concrete formwork is specialty work,” Eric said. “We have unique form issues and design challenges. When you’re coming up with solutions, you have to have a good relationship with your supplier. A.H. Harris is a great resource to bounce ideas off of or to supplement what we have going.”

Liquid Hardeners Realize Maximum Performance When Applied After 28 Days

Patience is a Virtue - Testing Confirms Liquid Hardeners Realize Maximum Performance When Applied After 28 Days

A growing trend within the concrete flooring industry is to apply liquid hardeners on freshly-troweled concrete in what is referred to as a “pre-seal” or a “cure-coat.” Conversely, Nox-Crete has historically advised applicators to wait and apply liquid floor hardeners a minimum of 28 days after concrete placement to allow for maximum performance. The 28 day recommendation was based on intuition and a strong understanding of the chemistry behind liquid floor hardeners and the means by which they densify concrete surfaces. The lack of conclusive data led Nox-Crete to not only ask but to answer the question, does the timing of the application (Day One vs. Day 28) impact the liquid floor hardener’s ability to improve abrasion resistance?
