Polyester Concrete Overlays and Volumetric Mixers
Polyester Concrete Overlays
Over the last few years, the concrete industry has seen an increase in the use of alternative materials. Among these is Polyester Concrete, a product that replaces Portland Cement with a liquid resin and hardening agent.
The product has been used as a patching material in the past, and is noted for the strength that can be obtained in a few hours. This allows roadways to be opened to traffic much sooner than more traditional overlays.
Zimmerman Industries has built several custom units to be used with this product, which is ideally suited for volumetric mixers due to the rapid setting times. These units have been utilized on projects in California, Minnesota, Canada, and most recently in Newark, New Jersey.
Zimmerman Industries’ patented delivery mechanism has proven to be the ideal platform for these units. Our ability to customize our machines to meet the ever changing marketplace allows us to maintain our standing as the leader in the Volumetric Mixer industry.
