GuardIt Colour Shield® is a proactive solution designed to ensure the integrity and longevity of infrastructure, eliminating the need for costly repairs or premature replacement of damaged infrastructure. Unlike existing decorative coating systems which have limited bondage to the
substrate, resulting in the shortened life span and protection of the asset, our innovative GuardIt Colour Shield® coating system penetrates and chemically bonds itself to the substrate becoming an extension or part of the substrate. This exceptional bonding quality prevents the intrusion of water and water-borne salts, carbon and sulphuric acids, thereby greatly reducing the damaging effects of moisture penetration into masonry and concrete,such as corrosion of reinforcing steel, salt leaching and freeze-thaw cracking. GuardIt Colour Shield® protects concrete infrastructure by
preventing water penetration within the concrete substrates that attack the reinforcement steel, which causes concrete cancer leading to substantial damage and possible collapse of structure.
Water Based Technology
This water based technology supersedes and outperforms all traditional toxic and harmful two pack xylene solvent based technologies and is at the forefront of both performance and adherence to the global environmental regulations regarding volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
