Compatibility of Deck-SIL®

Over 35 years of research and development with continuous testing confirms Advanced Chemical Technologies, Inc is a leader in silane technology. ACT is proud to introduce the Deck-SIL® 1700 System, a uniquely compatible Silane/Epoxy technology that outperforms either technology in concrete infrastructure rehabilitation. Comprised of two unique technologies to deliver unparalleled dual layer chloride and water protection.
DECK-SIL® 1700 series is a unique concrete infrastructure sealing system comprised of two well-proven product technologies. These two technologies are applied as a system to provide a dual layer of protection. DECK-SIL® 1700 series combines the proven concrete protection of DECK-SIL® PS 1700 silane with the low viscosity crack and surface sealing benefits of DECK-SIL® EP 1700. DECK-SIL® 1700 series shows a significant  increase in penetration of DECK-SIL® PS 1700 silane. This deeper penetration ofthe silane promotes improved performance of the silane. The combined effect of the DECK-SIL® 1700 series promotes longer bridge life due to deeper silane penetration and the flood coat filling performance of the DECK-SIL® EP 1700.

Deck-SIL® System Benefits

DECK-SIL® EP 1700 – is a clear penetrating treatment that causes concrete to become repellent to water, chloride, waterborne contaminants and other weathering elements. Thus preventing the premature deterioration of concrete and masonry structures.
DECK-SIL® EP 1700 – two-component, low viscosity, epoxy polymer specially formulated to provide a protective barrier and extend the life of the concrete surfaces. The low viscosity allows deep penetration into the smallest cracks, providing a protective barrier against the ingress of water, salts, ions and other waterborne contaminants, thus greatly extending the service life of the concrete structures.
