STAR Macro-Deck® Concrete Penetrant

Specialty Technology And Research is FIRST in providing innovative solutions for the nations’ deteriorating bridge structures.

STAR Macro-Deck® D.O.T. formulation

For application on Concrete bridge decks, superstructures, and concrete control barriers.

Penetrates Concrete, Not Another Coating

STAR Macro-Deck® is a specialty product, that penetrates and protects concrete, which has been tested in DOT Applications. It shields against any damage produced from deicing salts. It also provides a barrier against various petrochemicals and oils.

STAR Macro-Deck® is water thin and is Economical, Easy to Store and Apply.

Unprotected bridge structures can deteriorate over time and are costly to repair and replace. STAR Macro Deck® was studied and proven to prevent damage to concrete deck structures.

Major advantages of STAR Macro-Deck®

  • Superior Grade DOT Tested Formulation
  • Penetrates Concrete, Not Another Coating
  • Improves flexural and tensile strength of the concrete.
  • 100% Acrylic Polymer Concrete Saturant
  • Easy to apply, fluid – water like consistency.
  • Water based product is safe to handle and easy to store
  • Non-flammable

What destroys concrete:

  • The irreversible effects of weathering water, deicing salts, and other elements commonly damage concrete.
  • Deicing salts, used for roads, produce severe spalling, map cracking, crumbling and moderate fracturing of concrete structures.
  • Additionally, deicing salts permeate through concrete and corrode reinforcing bars (rebars) and thus destroy the load bearing capacity of the overall concrete structure.
  • Over time, this can lead to the complete catastrophic structural failure.

How can concrete be protected?

Concrete can be effectively protected by a specialty treatment of STAR Macro-Deck®, that will stop salt penetration and reduce concrete deterioration by other damaging elements.

STAR Macro-Deck® is based on specialty polymers and concrete saturants. It quickly penetrates into concrete surfaces and forms a rubber matrix network inside the physical concrete structure. This rubber matrix network stops water, deicing salts, and other damaging elements.

STAR Macro-Deck® maintains the flexural and tensile strength of concrete and can be applied on new and existing concrete structures.
