Entryways and Porte Chocheres

Entryways and Porte Chocheres

Entryways make the first impression when guest show up so it’s essential to maintain the natural beauty of the sidewalks, pillars, planters and other decorative hardscapes. UV rays, chlorides, carbonation and freeze/thaw cycles can take their toll. You need solutions that can stand up to heavy traffic and ever-changing weather conditions.

Miracote has a wide array of solutions engineered to restore, resurface, protect, and extend the life of sidewalks, walkways and other decorative concrete features. Each solution is engineered to deliver the qualities you’re looking for: environmentally safe, zero-VOC, odorless, fast setting, easy to use, durable, abrasion resistant, breathable, and LEED eligible. Our systems are proven performers, with years of in-field application and testing behind each.

Whether your project is a simple sidewalk or a stunning entryway to a world class casino/hotel, Miracote has the products, expertise and resources you need to protect and beautify all your hardscapes.

  • Product/Solutions:

Miracote MPC Park Deck is a polymerized, two-component, cementitious protective and waterproof coating that is applied to concrete parking deck surfaces in three coats to a typical minimum thickness of 3/32" or approximately 94 mils. It consists of a unique rubber-like polymer liquid which is mixed with a proprietary cement and aggregate blend. Miracote MPC Park Deck is most typically applied by notched squeegee and back-rolled, but can also be easily applied by hand trowels, magic trowels, brush or spray.

Designed for either exterior or interior use, Miracote MPC Park Deck restores and protects concrete surfaces from the consequences of exposure to water intrusion, chlorides, freeze thaw damage, carbonation and the impact and abrasion of vehicular traffic. Miracote MPC Park Deck is an extremely durable, cost-effective protective coating that is "breathable" and allows for the transmission of inherent moisture vapor within concrete without blistering or delamination. This inherent benefit of Miracote MPC Park Deck also helps lower internal moisture content of the concrete substrate which can further lead to significant reduction in corrosion rates of steel reinforcement.

Miracote MPC Park Deck is available in two aggregate blends depending on the volume and severity of traffic conditions. Miracote MPC Regular Powder is ideal for normal conditions in parking stalls, drive lanes and turn lanes. Miracote MPC Hard Powder is modified with the addition of aluminum oxide aggregate for enhanced abrasion resistance where more extreme duty is required, such as in turn lanes and entrance and exit ramps.

For detailing and treatment of existing cracks, MiraFlex Membrane A is an elastomeric rubber emulsion that is required to use for crack isolation. For enhanced cleanability and stain resistance, consult with Crossfield Products for appropriate clear acrylic, polyurethane or siloxane-based surface sealers.

Advantages:
