Traffic Bearing Systems


Vehicular traffic-bearing coating systems are designed to protect reinforced concrete parking structures.  They provide a seamless, durable, skid-resistant "membrane" on the concrete, preventing the ingress of moisture and chloride that lead to premature deterioration of concrete and reinforcing steel. Our Vehicular systems come in different colors, textures and formulations to meet job requirements.



Auto-Gard systems provide a variety of cost-effective solutions and options to ensure years of worry-free service.


Auto-Gard Systems are designed to:

  • Waterproof your new or existing parking structures.

  • Reduce maintenance costs associated with unprotected concrete.

  • Prolong the life of your parking structure.

  • Avoid costly rebar deterioration.

  • Protect concrete from leakage and moisture intrusion.

  • Prevent scaling and spalling


An unprotected concrete deck lies exposed to such destructive elements as:

  • Deterioration of reinforcing steel caused by ingress of chloride
  • Chemicals (Battery acids, gasoline, brake fluids, de-icing products)
  • Water
  • Freeze/Thaw Conditions
  • Sulphur
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • It is liquid-applied to form a seamless protective barrier.
  • Approved aggregate embedded in the coating creates a durable skid-resistant surface.
  • Optimum tensile strength and elongation properties allow it to expand and contract with thermal movement while bridging hairline cracks.
  • It becomes a part of the parking structure.
  • System is sustainable for the life of the structure.

How do we know it works?

Proven Performance

In 1998, The Performance Based Studies Research Group from Arizona State University's Del E. Webb School of Construction inspected 195 parking decks coated with Auto-Gard. Their conclusion reports a 97% customer satisfaction rate with the performance of the Auto-Gard system and the high performance of quality contractors.
