Polymer Membrane

To comply with spilled materials regulations, Durabak-M26, a single-component, slip-resistant chemical- and petroleum-resistant product from ADI Technologies (McLean, VA), seals porous concrete, thereby enabling the proper cleanup in the event of a spill that may potentially leak to the soil and cause damage to the environment. The polyurethane system bonds to the wall area to provide a seamless, leak-free, and repairable membrane.
