New Product Launch

FX 500 HA 

As a replacement to the old GP Flexcoat TQ3 announces the introduction of FX 500 HA. A two component, 100% solids and odor free highly flexible elastomeric membrane. Designed for use in areas inaccessible to our spray rigs or where the project is relatively small. The system is squeegee applied and installed at between 40 & 80 mils dependent upon specification. The product was recently used at a private penthouse apartment on Park Ave in uptown Manhattan. A 1,000 sf was treated on to plywood and all base flashings and penetrations were waterproofed using  GP Roofcoat, the system was finished using GP Wearcoat with sand, providing a key for the soundproofing adhesive.

FX 650

The latest addition to our range of sprayable systems is FX 650. A pure polyurea spray system designed for use in potable water situations. TQ3 Technical Services has recently been working with engineering staff at Tishman Speyer’s 666 3rd Ave building where four steel tanks have been lined using the FX 650.

The steel tanks were corroded and in need of repair, TQ3 Technical Services came up with a novel solution by first fixing and draping a geotextile fabric to the walls using turn bars. Once in place the FX 650 was applied by plural component high pressure spray equipment at approximately 120 mils. The work was completed over a weekend and back in service Monday morning.
