Participating Companies at WOC 2012


World of Concrete 2012
W. R. MEADOWS, INC. designs, manufactures and markets high quality products and systems for today's construction professionals. Its products cover every facet of the construction industry – from protecting and sealing concrete, expansion joints, and concrete restoration, to blocking the ingress of moisture through the building envelope. At the show the company will display several new products from its product line including concrete epoxies, concrete waterproofing, and air barriers.

EG-96 HP, a non-shrink epoxy grout which is a general purpose, three-part, high strength, flowable epoxy grout will be introduced by the company. In concrete waterproofing line, W. R. MEADOWS will exhibit its full line of cementitious waterproofing products, including ADI-CON CW PLUS, a waterproofing admixture; CEM-KOTE CW PLUS, a capillary/crystalline waterproofing product; CEM-KOTE FLEX CR, a flexible, chemical-resistant, cementious waterproofing product; and CEM-KOTE FLEX ST, a flexible ,cementitious waterproofing. In addition, the company will also launch HRM 714 hot-applied waterproofing and AIR-SHIELD LSR synthetic rubber air barrier.


GMX, Inc. is a manufacturer and supplier of waterproofing and damp proofing products for the building envelope. A new, single-component fluid applied membrane that cures to provide a flexible, monolithic barrier against air, vapor, and water was recently introduced by GMX, Inc., a Garland Industries company. Air Guard polymer-modified asphalt membrane cures to a tough, durable film that offers exceptional elastomeric and crack-bridging capabilities to protect construction surfaces against air, vapor, and water penetration.

World of Concrete 2012

Air-Guard is an environmentally friendly, water-based material that handles easily without odor, making it a safe and convenient solution to implement in a wide variety of masonry, concrete, exterior gypsum board, stone, wood, and metal construction applications. Anthony Gargano, president of GMX, Inc., reports, "In addition to the obvious health-related hazards, moisture development within the building envelope has been shown to lead to energy loss in wall assemblies, which is increasingly important to environmentally responsible building owners." According to Gargano, independent testing in accordance with ASTM E 2178 03 requirements has demonstrated leakage rates of less than 0.001 L/s/sq.m, which is considerably below the 0.004 minimum required. By providing a flexible blanket of protection between the exterior wall assembly and any decorative façade, Air-Guard helps ease the load on HVAC systems for increased energy efficiency, while reducing the possibility for mold growth inside building walls.

Air-Guard, and other GMX waterproofing solutions for the building envelope, are manufactured using ISO 9001 quality-control procedures, and are exclusively available through GMX Authorized Applicators, to ensure the highest quality professional application.

Lignomat Ltd.

Lignomat USA Ltd offers new and more reliable test equipment to measure moisture in a concrete slab. The floor covering industry is currently facing a shift from measuring moisture vapor emission rate using the calcium chloride test to measuring the relative humidity using an in-situ RH and temperature sensor.

This method is the preferred method in many other countries and it is high time that the US follows these procedures.

World of Concrete 2012
Experience has shown that the calcium chloride test can pass, but the floor cover still fails. The calcium chloride test is not reliable, because ambient conditions inside the building affect the results, and only the top 1/4" of the slab is measured. The RH in-situ probe is not influenced by ambient conditions and measures as deep as needed which allows for better evaluation of moisture migrating through the concrete slab.

Lignomat offers three moisture meters and a long-term monitoring device to measure moisture in concrete slabs. The system uses reusable sensors and disposable sleeves. A handheld meter can be easily connected to the sensors and read the RH values from the sensors embedded in the floor.


Pultrall manufactures and distributes a wide array of products all related to the precast/pre-stressed market, whether it is the rebar itself or the accessories.

American Decorative Concrete

American Decorative Concrete is America's leading producer of dyeing, polishing, and sealing chemistry for decorative concrete. Among its brands are some of the most widely recognized names in the industry including the Ameripolish® SureLock Color System for polished concrete, Color Juice™, Color Seal™, and Patriot™ Sprayer Systems.

World of Concrete 2012

The Ameripolish® SureLock™ Color System for polished concrete represents a significant technological advance over conventional dyes, densifiers, and stain protectors. It is specially engineered to bond color into the slab and protects it, yielding true colors that last longer than conventional dyes.

SureLock Densifier is a deeper-penetrating lithium silicate formula that sprays on easily and cures within one hour. It is formulated to bond to both dye and concrete, increasing the dye's adhesion. It is designed to be mixed with SureLock Dye for intensifying color beyond the saturation achievable with a single dye application.

SureLock Stain Protector is an advanced protective product that features superior resistance to staining and etching agents. It also bonds to the dye and densifier, completing the protective package designed to keep the color in the concrete. All three products contain UV stabilizers to help protect against fading.

A compatible cleanser, SureLock Rejuvenating Cleaner, extends the service life of the Stain Protector application as it cleans.

Gehl, a leading manufacturer of compact equipment for agriculture and construction markets, presents the RT Series Compact Track Loaders—the most innovative track loaders in the market. The all-new RT Series Compact Track Loaders includes two models manufactured in Yankton, South Dakota, the RT175 and RT210, which incorporate the industry-exclusive HydraTrac™ Automatic Track Tensioning System.

World of Concrete 2012
The patented HydraTrac™ Automatic Track Tensioning System eliminates the need for manually tensioning the tracks on the loader before operation. When the machine is started, the hydraulic system automatically pressurizes a load device that provides the ideal tension for the track system. The HydraTrac™ System uses this excess hydraulic pressure to maintain proper track tension during use. The HydraTrac™ System not only saves valuable time on the jobsite, but also increases the life of the tracks and bearings by ensuring the proper tension immediately upon start-up and tension release when the machine is shut down.

HydraTrac™ System also ensures that all hydraulic horsepower is efficiently utilized resulting in high performance with reduced owning and operating costs. In addition, service performed on the undercarriage track system has been made virtually tool-free with the HydraTrac™ system. With the flip of a switch and removal of a simple lock-plate, the tracks de-tension and can be easily removed without the use of a pry bar or to allow access to the undercarriage track system.
