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.
