Product Update: Improved TC-40 Colorant in New 16oz Size

July 19th, 2017 No comments

We are excited to announce that Westcoat’s TC-40 colorant has been reformulated and repackaged and is ready to be shipped.

The improvements and changes that we have made are:

  • Increased Shelf Life
    • Especially with regards to settling
  • Improved Product Robustness
    • Mixes into Westcoat cements evenly and trowels out with ease
  • New 16oz size
    • Price list is attached
  • Colors: Bark, Cinnamon, Clay, Peach, Straw, Smoke, Yellow, Raw Umber
    • Removed Green and added Raw Umber

 The new color chart represents colors when mixed at 3/4 oz and 2 oz per 50 lbs for tonal reference.

Consistency of the product should be maintained from start to finish. Please AVOID using the old and new formulations together on the same project, although much will be mitigated when staining over using SC-35 WB Stain. We will have some stock of the old formula during the transition.

As always it is strongly recommended that a sample be approved by the customer before starting the application. The final color will vary based on the color of the cement and the amount of colorant.

Kitchen Floor that Dazzles – Project Profile

June 27th, 2017 No comments

Metallic Epoxy Dazzles | Learn more at http://www.westcoat.com/liquid-dazzle-p-19.html

SYSTEM: ALX Interior with Liquid Dazzle
AREAS: Kitchen, Dining, Storage
SIZE: 400 sq ft

 

When we moved our Westcoat headquarters, it was unanimous that having a full kitchen would be such an added benefit of our new building. We wanted the best for our new home. The remodel of the upstairs consisted of removing the very old thin and worn carpet which revealed a wood substrate.

We installed carpet in our offices and a ground aggregate flooring in the hallways. For the kitchen, we wanted something that would really pop and tie in with the silver appliances and white cabinetry.

Since the floor was wood, it needed to be transformed into a concrete base for Liquid Dazzle to be installed. Our crew installed ALX Interior which not only waterproofs but allows for another system to be installed over it.

ALX Interior is the installation of the waterproof sheet membrane, metal lath, base coat and slurry coat leaving a concrete canvas for the metallic epoxy application.

Liquid Dazzle was applied in Graphite creating a dynamic effect. This unique floor is not only dazzling, it is waterproof, chemical resistant and durable. The result is a gorgeous and long-lasting floor that will be used daily for years to come.

Traditionally know as our outdoor waterproofing deck system, ALX’s versatility as ALX Interior is not only perfect for our kitchen but any elevated wood surface that requires a concrete or epoxy surface.

Ask us today about transforming plywood to concrete on your next project!

Exciting New Warranty Information and QCA Program Changes

June 27th, 2017 No comments

We are excited to announce new System Warranties and changes to our QCA Rebate and Co-Op program. Westcoat deeply values the relationship we have with our QCAs and these changes will bring more value to you and your customers.

Warranty – Effective Immediately

Please see the attached Warranty Form for updated information on ALL of our warranties. Some of the highlights include:

 

  • 15-year warranty on ALX Pro
  • NEW System warranties in each category
  • Longer warranties on some systems

 

Our project specific warranties are exclusively for our QCAs. In order to qualify for a warranty, you MUST send before and after photos (installation photos are a huge plus!) and proof of purchase.

QCA Rebate & Co-Op Program – Effective for the period beginning July 1, 2017

The following changes will be in effect for the QCA Rebate and Co-Op Program:

 

  • Move from quarterly to bi-annually
  • One simplified form for both Rebate or Co-Op
  • Increased incentives

Instead of submitting your receipts every quarter, you will now only need to submit sales totals twice per year. The Rebate and Co-Op numbers have changed to provide even more encouragement to claim these incentives. You will have the choice of either rebate or co-op with double the value for co-op dollars and having the entire campaign funded by Westcoat.

ALX Receives Class I Vapor Barrier Certification

June 7th, 2017 No comments

ALX Receives Class I Vapor Barrier Certification

 

Long known for its Class A Fire Rating, Westcoat’s ALX has now received the ICC-ES Class I Vapor Barrier listing. This certification comes at a crucial time as building code standards for waterproofing decks are becoming more stringent in the wake of the tragic Berkeley deck collapse.

While the State of California is expected to make sweeping changes, some cities have already adopted stricter policies. Westcoat is proud to be at the forefront of the technology required to meet these needs.

When the ALX Standard or ALX Custom Cementitious Coating Systems are installed with full coverage WP-40 Sheet Membrane, they meet the requirements of a Class I vapor retarder (0.1 perm or less). These systems were tested in accordance with the ASTM E96-2013, Test Method for Water Vapor Transmission of Materials.

http://www.icc-es.org/Reports/pdf_files/ESL-1098.pdf

The full listing can be found here.

 

ALX is the clear choice when choosing a waterproofing system. It is the ultimate protection for the end user, applicator and specifier.

Please contact us or your rep to find out more about ALX with full WP-40 sheet membrane coverage.

Waterproofed Pool Deck with a View

June 1st, 2017 No comments

Waterproof Concrete Pool Deck | westcoat.com/blog

 

Park Bellevue Towers

 

 Applicator: Urban Waterproofing

 

System Installed: MACoat Broom Finish

 

Size: 8,000 square feet

 

This apartment building turned condos sits towering over Oakland’s Lake Merritt and boasts gorgeous views of the mixed urban and natural environment. The sixth floor concrete pool deck, which sits above living space, was having issues with leaks. Not knowing exactly what the solution would be, the HOA turned to their construction partner, Urban Waterproofing, for some insight on what the next step should be.

After an assessment of the concrete, Urban knew what needed to happen and called on reps and waterproofing experts for some added expertise. Nor Cal reps Chris Tapia and Michael Mulnix suggested Westcoat’s MACoat system with a Broom Finish since the customer wanted a concrete look. The MACoat system is the perfect solution for above grade concrete surfaces on multi-family building.

The crew at Urban prepped the concrete which ended up exposing a lot of the aggregate, so a quick fill coat of TC-1 was applied to create a nice smooth canvas for the waterproofing system. MACoat was installed per specification with a Broom Finish and sealed with SC-10 Acrylic Topcoat in Concrete Gray. The customer was pleased and had two more smaller decks done with the same system and finish.

Thanks to the knowledgeable applicator and support from our rep the job was installedwithout and the result is a protected concrete deck with no more leaks and a fresh space the owners can enjoy for years to come.
