Anti-carbonation coatings are surface treatments that have a high resistance to carbon dioxide. They protect concrete from carbonation by acting as a carbon dioxide barrier. The elastic properties of some manufacture’s products allow for an amount of movement and crack bridging.

Levelling/ fairing coats can be applied with or without a reinforcement matt, over concrete or mortar surfaces or over concrete repair mortar. It is suitable for the following uses:

  • Use as a concrete/ mortar pore sealer or levelling mortar
  • A thin layer render over vertical or horizontal structural elements
  • Repairing of minor defects (pores and honeycombed concrete)

Permanent anti-graffiti paints should offer around 10-15 years of graffiti protection.

We estimate an anti-graffiti surface is around 80% quicker to clean than an untreated one, so council graffiti removal teams or graffiti removal professionals can maximise their efficiency once it has been applied to the walls in frequently tagged areas.

The heavy-duty epoxy coating has a lifespan of 10-15 years depending on certain variables that can impact your concrete and your epoxy itself.

Epoxy coatings are normally applied over concrete floors to provide a high-performance, smooth, and durable surface that can last many years and withstand heavy loads.

There are numerous DWI approved protective coatings which include, epoxy coatings, cementitious, polyurethane coatings. When applying DWI approved coatings it is always important to ensure that they are still certified to be used by checking the DWI Website. At Total specialist maintenance we have a lot of experience in using DWI approved coatings within the water industry.

Essentially, a polyurethane coating is a liquid plastic which dries to form a paint-like film on an underlying substance or layer. Polyurethane paint provides durability, resistance to chemicals, water, abrasion, and temperature, as well as an attractive glossy finish.

​​Cementitious waterproofing coatings are breathable, seamless coatings used to provide positive and negative side waterproofing protection on concrete and masonry surfaces. They prevent damage from water infiltration and resist mould and mildew.
