AC•Tech products and solutions are backed by a 15 year labor and material warranty. We can stand behind that warranty because 1) we have products that truly perform, 2) we provide technical support during all phases of a project's execution, and 3) we work exclusively through a network of Technical Sales Representatives and Recommended Applicators who have earned AC•Tech "approval" by completing our comprehensive training program.

We do not cut corners. We do not leave our customers hanging. We believe in building long-term business relationships where everyone succeeds. Reputation is Based on Performance. Yours and Ours.

AC•Tech, Allied Construction Technologies Inc. is headquartered in Norfolk Virginia. We actively collaborate with AB-Polymerchemie (Germany) and Chowgule Construction Technologies (India) to develop, manufacture and support specialty coatings for construction, industrial, commercial, residential, and infrastructure markets in the US and around the world.

Zero VOC Moisture Mitigation Epoxy image

Zero VOC Moisture Mitigation Epoxy - AC•Tech 2170™

12-Hour Cure
AC•Tech 2170™ is a 2 component, 100% reactive solids, vapor reduction epoxy that has been tested to contain ZERO VOC emissions and almost no detectable odor, making it ideal for sensitive and soon-to-be-occupied areas.

A true one coat system that requires no sand broadcasting, ACA•Tech 2170™ is compatible with most flooring systems and adhesives.

This easy-to-spread epoxy resin remains bonded to properly prepared concrete with sustained alkalinity levels as high as pH 14, and moisture levels as high as 100% RH (ASTM F2170) with no upper MVER limit (ASTM F1869).

15-Year Labor and Material Warranty. Technical Support before, during and after project completion.

Fast Curing, Zero VOC Epoxy Resin image

Fast Curing, Zero VOC Epoxy Resin - AC•Tech 2170™ FC

4-Hour Fast Cure
AC•Tech 2170™ FC contains all the attributes of the original AC•Tech 2170 system ... but in a 4-hour cure formulation.

AC•Tech 2170™ FC (with its ZERO VOC emissions, no perceptible odor, and fast curing times) is used extensively in projects where workers, patients, children or customers are in areas adjacent to the flooring application work or where flooring systems are being laid during downtimes (overnight or on weekends).

Fast-Curing Vapor Reduction System image

Fast-Curing Vapor Reduction System - Go-Early AC•Tech 2170 FC

Go-Early Technology™ is built on the AC•Tech 2170™ Fast-Curing, Zero VOC, 100% RH tolerant Vapor Reduction System that has long been recognized for its ease-of-application, high performance and consistent results in the concrete construction and resilient flooring industries.

Now, this same German-engineered ISO 9001:2008 manufactured epoxy resin has been formally tested here in the United States as a Type 1, Class C Liquid Membrane-Forming Curing Compound in accordance with ASTM C1315-11 testing standards.

This means that ACA•Tech's Go-Early Technology™ offers Fast Track Construction Projects a One Coat, Division 3 Solution to Concrete Curing, Slab Protection and Vapor Reduction.

Consider how the following Go-Early Technology™ process might help bring more innovation to your Fast Track Construction Projects.

  • Place concrete. Do NOT use silicates. Do NOT hard trowel.
  • Apply Light Broom Finish at initial concrete set (5-10 mils depth)
  • Apply the Go-Early Technology™ resin at 12 mils within 24-72 hours of initial concrete set.
  • Cure 4-hours for Foot Traffic -- 12-hours for Mechanical Resistance -- 48-hours for Chemical Resistance and Shore D 82 Slab Protection.

AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ (OBS) image

AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ (OBS)

Concrete slab contamination is a vexing issue for remodeling & renovation contractors, flooring contractors, facility owners, maintenance engineers and risk management officers. Until now, the only reliable solution was to demolish the contaminated concrete and replace it with a new concrete slab. Obviously, the "Jackhammer Method" incurs tremendous costs in terms of labor, materials, work interruptions, and hazardous material removal and disposal.

The AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ Detergent (OBS-D) is a biodegradable cleaner that is sprayed onto mechanically prepared concrete with cold water. Mechanical preparation (via shotblasting) creates the porosity necessary for the cleaner to penetrate deep into the concrete substrate.

Once the OBS-D has turned clear (usually within an hour) the concrete is cleaned with a high-pressure, high temperature washer with a floor spinner attachment. This allows the OBS-D to bind with the hydrocarbons and other organic contaminants deep within the slab and "float" them to the top for removal. This cleaning process may need to be repeated several times, depending on the level of contamination.

Most floor spinners have vacuum attachments so that the waste-water can be vacuumed-up for disposal in accordance with federal, state and local hazardous material regulations.

AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ Coating image

AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ Coating

AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ Coating (OBS-C) is applied immediately following the cleaning of the contaminated slab with the (OBS-D) Detergent.

The OBS Coating is a dense, zero VOC, two-part epoxy which effectively seals any remaining hydrocarbons and organic contaminants within the concrete and prevents them from causing future bonding issues and flooring failures.

The OBS-C is mixed, spread via a notched squeegee, and back-rolled to ensure even, consistent coverage. After 15 minutes, the OBS-C receives a silica sand broadcast to prevent possible amine blush and delamination of subsequent coatings.

Once the AC•Tech Oil Buster System has fully cured, a self-leveling underlayment, patch or feather finish can be installed directly to the cured system.

At this point, flooring installation can proceed as normal without worry of oil-related failure.

Backed by a 10-year materials and labor warranty, the AC•Tech Oil Buster System™ offers a long-term solution to oil, hydrocarbon and organic chemical contamination in concrete. NO JACKHAMMERS REQUIRED !
