Challenging the Status Quo

Is doing the same old thing, costing you time and money?

Challenging the Status Quo
19 January 2021 Posted in ,

You know what the “status quo” is. It’s that same old, same old thing you’ve always done, so you keep doing it.
In the concrete industry, whether it be construction, or civil infrastructure maintenance, that status quo may be holding back efficient progress in your methods or your cost control.

Here are some of the ways Markham challenges the construction status quo.
Let us help identify ways you can save time and money!

Replace multiple products with one

For many years now, we’ve been talking about how AQURON treatments can replace multiple products in concrete construction.
AQURON 1000 and AQURON 2000 are penetrating treatments which seal and protect the concrete. What you may not realise is that they enhance concrete curing, if applied early.
A single application, within 24 hours of pour, can replace multiple applications and the associated scheduling.


  • Curing
  • Sealing
  • Anti-dust hardening


  • Curing
  • Sealing
  • Moisture control and waterproofing

That’s a very simplistic overview, and there are even more benefits to these remarkable products.

More about AQURON for curing

Spray-applied AQURON 1000 or 2000 is equal or superior to 14 days’ water curing. If you’ve been using ponding, or hessian, or black plastic – AQURON is much more convenient. Save yourself some serious time and labour costs. Cut down the scheduling delays.


Eliminate waterproofing membranes

Have you met Markham’s holistic concrete hydrogel waterproofing system?

  • Hydrogel waterproofing admixture in the mix
  • AQURON 2000 spray-applied waterproofing sealer to the surface
  • CONQOR 47B or 87B waterstops for joints and penetrations

This proven system can completely replace the need for a membrane, and the associated expense and operational challenges.

And there’s more

There’s much much more. The whole Markham team is solutions-focused, and we have decades of combined experience to fall back on.
When you bring your concrete construction challenges to us, we will offer you a solution to achieve the result you’re looking for. We have an end-to-end approach, rather than merely selling products.
