Oklahoma City-based Advanced Chemical Technologies Inc. (ACT) has developed mixtures and new methods of application for readily available chemicals that have helped make Oklahoma a leader in using organosilanes for the infrastructure protection market.
Organosilanes are organic chemicals where at least one carbon atom has been replaced by a silicon atom. The replacement of carbon by silicon alters the reactivity of the molecule to make it penetrate and then to react with infrastructure substrates such as concrete, limestone and masonry to form a protected surface.
Since providing the first silane-based product to protect a bridge structure more than 40 years ago, ACT has been a leader in the waterproofing market due to its innovative approach and focus on this industry segment. The company also was the first to protect a nuclear power plant with silane. ACT has received 14 U.S. and Canadian patents for its products that have been used worldwide to protect concrete and masonry structures from the destructive forces of water, salt, ion, and chemical pollutant ingression.
The testing is complete and the performance is proven. Since the world’s first silane bridge deck treatment was conducted by Advanced Chemical Technologies, Inc. in August of 1977, millions of dollars in laboratory and field evaluations and more than a decade of independent tests have concluded beyond a shadow of a doubt that SIL-ACT® is the protective treatment of the future. For strength, for durability, for added life at dramatic cost savings, the test conclusions are unanimous. READ MORE
