Aesthetics, function and performance are the three key factors inspected during product specification. If you had to pick one, which would it be? OR, what if I told you that you could have all 3?
The engineering and architectural communities serve the building and construction industries in similar ways. Both provide products that add beauty and performance to a given building or structure. However, each one takes a different approach as to why a particular product is specified or chosen for a project. For instance, architects are typically driven by the look and may ask, “How many colors does this product come in?” On the other hand, an engineer is usually more concerned with the performance and is likely to ask, “What is your performance criteria?”
The beauty of Induron’s AC-403 Acrylic Elastomeric Coating is that it addresses all three factors. This is why we like to call it a 3-in-1 solution for architects and engineers. AC-403 is formulated to fill and bridge minor hairline cracks, provide long-term exposure to sunlight and allow moisture vapor to escape from the substrate. So, whether you’re beautifying an office building or concrete reservoir, your choice is simple: You can have all three with AC-403!
Recently, AC 403 was specified to restore and revamp a 5-million gallon concrete water storage tank in Papillion, NE and an office building located in Omaha, NE. If you don’t believe AC-403 can get the job done, check out the before and after pictures below! All in all, sometimes the simple choice is the best choice. As Induron likes to say, “Start with a good finish!”
