BridgeWay Station Block A

Silcoseal Select was used on the tilt wall panels for block A of BrickWay Station. We had a Q&A with Tilt Contractor; Cody Branton from CBM Concrete.

1. Which product/products of ours were used on the project?
On this project, we only used the Silcoseal Select bondbreaker.  We typically will use either HSC or LSC to cure our slabs but we were only tasked with the walls on this project and the SOG did not require a densifier/hardener.

2. What problems were you trying to solve by using our product?
Our recommendation for the use of Silcoseal in lieu of a competing product was due to the fact that our panels were going to be 16” thick with extensive rebar mats, we needed a reliable bondbreaker.  Due to the need for reapplication using a different product brand with any amount of rain, I felt that the reapplication of whatever material we used would be difficult given the density of rebar in the panels.  This resulted in us convincing the GC that Silcoseal Select would be the better choice in order to avoid a stuck panel and end up with a better result.

3. What made our product stand out from other options?
Its sustainability in weather conditions, especially during the winter months.

BridgeWay Station Exterior4. How did our product help make your project successful?
Avoided any stuck panels and the aesthetics that resulted in not having to over apply turned out great.

5. What’s the main reason you’d recommend our products to other builders?
Because its worked well for us on every single project that we have used and the only issues we have had is when we’ve been forced to use a different material due to distributor supply.

Nox-Crete’s Clean Line Reveal Wins a 2018 MIP at World of Concrete Awards

We’re proud to share with you that our PVC rustication strip product, Clean Line Reveal, is the Industry Choice winner in the Concrete Construction Equipment category in Hanley Wood’s 2018 Most Innovative Products. This award is presented annually in conjunction with the World of Concrete. Attendees of the tradeshow and audiences of Concrete Construction and The Concrete Producer vote on products they deem to be innovative to the industry. A panel of industry experts, many of whom serve on the World of Concrete Educational Advisory Board, also have a hand in selecting the winners.

About Our 2018 Most Innovative Products Winner

Clean Line Reveal  (or CLR) is available in a variety of profiles to create design details in tilt-up and precast structures like never before. The extruded high density PVC material makes the strips lightweight and durable, and unlike wood, they’re oblivious to climate change. CLR is easy to install, easy to remove, and produces a clean, uniform finish that’s incredibly smooth. Wood reveals contain sugars that can leach from the wood, resulting in discoloration and retardation; CLR eliminates this concern. Additionally, there is a reduction in labor costs because this product eliminates the need for priming, sanding, and repairs. Plus, it's easy to cut pieces in the field with a circular/miter saw.

We consider it an honor to have Clean Line Reveal win the Industry Choice MIP. Winning this category in particular serves as a testament to the quality of this product. We congratulate all of the other nominees and winners of their respective categories and we look forward to the innovative products and ideas the industry will see next year.

World of Concrete 2018

We've been attending World of Concrete for over 4 decades now and it just keeps getting better every year.  We look forward to meeting new people, seeing long-time friends face-to-face, and telling everyone about our full line of products.  We were busy this year with representation in three different locations.

At our main booth, our organic concrete build-up and splatter remover Blast-Off was a big attraction. We had a great time talking about the benefits of this safe-on-all-surfaces product and demonstrating its effectiveness through display and video.

New Products Showcase

Adjacent to our main booth was our New Product Showcase where attendees could learn all about what's new in our assortment. The following products were featured for each category:
