Treat-Proof is an integral moisture barrier (waterproofing) solution for all internal and external concrete applications.
Once Treat-Proof penetrates deep it forms an internal, permanent, chemically complete, non-destructive barrier which allows concrete to breathe and maintain its optimum humidity to allow hydration to continue. But it prevents water and other harmful agents from entering or moving through your concrete.
Treat-Proof is the most economical solution you can use on wet sub-floors as it is only applied once and lasts for the life of the concrete. It is safe, cost-effective, easy to apply and completely non-toxic, making it perfect for projects requiring a fast track system that allows permanent results and early site access with minimal site disruption.
Treat-Proof at the time of pour is a superior curing medium (equal to or better than waterponding cure) on fresh concrete, virtually eliminating surface cracking, slab curl and dusting. Ideal for new or existing slabs - below or above grade, basements, lift wells, walls and soffits, carparks and ramps, freezer and coolroom floors, extreme thaw situations, sewer or extreme environment and water tanks etc., to stop water ingress and protect against acid chemical attack whilst at the same time alleviates any problems with floor coverings or coatings due to moisture.

The first ever CSDA Concrete Polishing class is scheduled for February 6-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will be preceded by the first CSDA Operator Certification course held at the show on February 5-6. Completing the lineup is a CSDA Estimating class on February 6-7, which was first introduced to the World of Concrete Education Program in 2012.
The CSDA Concrete Polishing class is a two-day classroom and hands-on course that focuses on the fundamentals of this technique, the correct setup, operation and maintenance of equipment and the differences between wet and dry polishing. The class also educates students on how to accurately bid polishing jobs.
“By participating in the CSDA Concrete Polishing class, contractors will learn how to eliminate the majority of risk factors associated with this discipline. For the first time in the history of the sawing and drilling industry, a course has been created to educate people on a technique outside the core disciplines,” says Andy Bowman, lead instructor for the class.
The CSDA Core Drilling 201 class is an Operator Certification course for experienced operators who want to gain the highest level of proficiency in this discipline, while the Estimating class will focus specifically on the practice of estimating sawing and drilling jobs.
World of Concrete is not only a great venue for training, but also for networking. CSDA will hold a Board meeting on the morning of Wednesday, February 6 to review its 2012 accomplishments and plan for the coming year. In addition, the CSDA Next Generation Committee will meet the following day, February 7, to discuss progress, continue work on current projects and organize team building activities. Both meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend and learn about what the association is doing for current and future industry leaders.
The association will exhibit at booth #C4441 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, where CSDA will share space with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The two organizations have shared exhibit space for the past five years, with the aim of highlighting OSHA’s safety and health programs to attendees and showing how CSDA uses these programs to help members. The association will also have exciting giveaways and prizes during the show. Information about these giveaways will be released closer to the start of the show.
