Fins Car Washes, Located throughout South and North Carolina
When selecting a cold fluid applied waterproofing product, you need to understand the environment you will be placing it. What performance characteristics will be required to complete a successful installation, and what product will give you the best long-term outcome for the building owner.
When designing Car Washes, you need a waterproofing material that will take consistent wetting and humid conditions, constant high-pressure water spray, and the ability to withstand detergents and other typical car wash chemicals. Plus look attractive and provide long-term wearability.
DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer fulfilled these needs and became the perfect choice to architect Progressive AE to specify for the new Fins Car Washes they were designing throughout South and North Carolina.
DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer ‘s long-term performance record in severe conditions made it the logical choice.
First, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is designed for CMU construction commonly used in car washes. Second, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is virtually impervious to water and the perfect choice as a negative-side barrier to the constant wetting of the interior surface. Third, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is the only cold fluid applied masonry waterproofer tested to 140+ MPH of wind-driven rain exposure, directly related to the high-pressure water spray used in car washes. Fourth, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is tested to withstand many everyday chemicals, like detergents, without significant degradation. And finally, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is significantly cost competitive to typical non-waterproof paint finishes, far lower in cost than epoxy finishes, comes in an attractive bright white color (and can be tinted), is readily available throughout the U.S., and is very easy to apply.
Doug Moss, President of Barrier South, and the Waterproofing Contractor for these projects, summed it up. “We have used DRYLOK® on several projects and have always found it to be a reliable waterproofing product for CMU and concrete. Every client we have used it for has been pleased with the results.”
As a plus, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer provides a 15-year waterproof warranty when properly applied to bare masonry and cementitious surfaces.
When you are looking to “keep water in or keep water out” of concrete masonry, CMU, pre-cast concrete, or cement stucco, DRYLOK® Extreme Concrete and Masonry Waterproofer is the perfect choice for high performance, low cost, and easy installation. Time tested since 1953.
