Welcome to our new website and company blog. The blog is designed to bring you company news and updates – typical items will include interesting projects, new product developments, news from our Technical Services business and generally anything newsworthy. 2014 was a landmark year for TQ3, we increased revenue by over 300%, we moved (yet again) to new premises to accommodate that growth. Significant investment was made in new processing equipment, additional personnel were brought in and TQ3 Technical Services was established. We would like to thank all our customers, architects, waterproofing consultants, developers etc. for your support and look forward to working with you on future projects.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT
Port Authority Bus Terminal, Times Sq., NY

Pumadeq-Logo 

TQ3’s  Pumadeq system was recently used at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal to waterproof the roadways  to prevent water ingress in to the terminal building. Work was carried out over 4 weekends by approved installer Structural. This challenging project involved carrying our recessed repairs to the control joints, caulking with Puma resin, installation of membrane and traffic coating system. The terminal has around 8,000 bus movements every weekday, Pumadeq’s fast turnaround times (can be trafficked after 45 minutes) and highly durable finish were key factors in the client’s decision to use our system.

 Prodeq

Prodeq has been installed at a new  residential development by Related Propertied in Manhattan’s Tribeca district. The system was first installed on the 8th floor terrace to allow  a crane to be placed directly on top of  the Prodeq, without the need for protection. Because of tight time schedules the client specified our GC Primer which allows installation after just 4 days. GC Primer is a specially formulated 100% solids epoxy that is alkali and moisture resistant. Prodeq incorporates our unique spray hybrid instant setting membrane. Approved installer MRS of Hackensack in New Jersey worked closely with TQ3 Technical Services to ensure a successful outcome. The main roof  terrace  was waterproofed with Prodeq which has  pavers and a partial green roof.
