Tremco Sealant & Waterproofing

Solutions for Building Owners and Facility Managers

Restoring Airtightness and Weather-Resistance to Window and Curtain Wall Systems

The window and curtain wall system has evolved over the years, especially with respect to weather control performance. Each has its own unique challenges and is designed to respond to different performance requirements when controlling the passage of air and water. Visit our Glazing Restoration page.

Parking Structure Preservation

Parking structures represent a major capital expenditure for owners. Once constructed, they are expected to last for several decades, despite wide temperature variations, extremely corrosive conditions and impressive loads. Vehicular traffic takes a daily toll. De-icing salts, acid rain and caustic chemicals compound the abuse.

Introducing Prime Gel 2800 Strippable

Due to customer request we’ve developed Prime Gel 2800 Strippable surface seal. This is a rapid cure polyurea non-sag paste designed as a temporary surface seal prior to injection of epoxies or polyurethanes. It comes in cartridges and can be stripped off once the injection resin has cured, leaving a clean surface. This non-sag paste that won’t run or drip in vertical or overhead applications. The surface needs to be dry to use 2800.

It is recommended for basement wall or foundation repair, architectural concrete, precast components and tilt-up panels, and parking decks. For more details, see the technical data sheet.
