Since 1985 Aquron has produced and sold products to the aquatics market. In 2008 the Aquron Corporation formally formed the Aquron Aquatics Division recognizing the needs in the Pool and Spa Industry to address certain problematic conditions that are common to Pool Contractors using pneumatically applied ready mix Shotcrete, or dry mix Gunite, poured in place concrete, natural stone surfaces, waterscapes, and patio deck areas.
Aquron Corporation has helped to protect and preserve concrete and stone structures since 1985 with a number of effective products. The same technology standardly used for years in the concrete industry is now being focused on the Pool Industry.
Concrete is not waterproof, and neither is the plaster coat or the mortar and grout used in coping and tile applications. Moisture that migrates into and through a pool shell is very destructive to the structure. Soluble salts in the concrete move with the water and present as efflorescence. Moisture moving through concrete, as it comes into contact with the reinforcing steel, causes the steel to corrode. As the steel corrodes it begins to off-gas inside the concrete creating a slow time bomb. Leaching of pool chemicals through the shell walls that have not been densified allow water to leach into our ground water. This will have short term as well as long term effects on our ground water as well as the soil. The good news is these issues can be prevented and managed by the use of Aquron products, which are water born and green. Our products not only protect the environment, but they also protect your reputation and bottom line.
One of the most prevalent challenges in the aquatics industry is efflorescence. Efflorescence is evidence that water is moving. The two sources of efflorescence are hydrostatic pressure from the ground and water in transit. Hydrostatic pressure from the ground can manifest as modeling and/or failure of the plaster, as well as many other ways. Water in transit over your negative edges and spillways, causes what is called capillary action. Capillary action will suction available particulate out of the setting bed and grout for your tile, stone, and coping applications.
Aquron Penetrating Densifier, Curing Compound and Efflorescence Reduction System
Aquron CPSP can be applied to the concrete shell. It will increase density and reduce permeability providing a greater bond for the plaster or pebble.
The addition of MGS-Mortar and Grout Solution to the mortar and grout mix for coping and tile applications will improve density, bond strength, and provide waterproofing to prevent soluble salts from forming unsightly efflorescence.
Aquron I-Shield is a clear, invisible, flat matte penetrating surface sealer for brick, slate, natural stone, stucco, concrete, and other masonry.
Aquron I-Deck is a clear, elastomeric penetrating surface sealer that can be used on brick, slate, natural stone, stucco, concrete, and other masonry.
