CARLSTADT, N.J., June 28, 2016 – Hycrete, Inc., a leader in waterproofing and corrosion protection technologies for concrete, is proud to announce the use of its admixtures in the new Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial in Honolulu, HI, honoring law enforcement officers in all enforcement branches in the state of Hawaii.
Hycrete’s donation of its admixture to the project will help protect the concrete from aesthetic degradation and reduce future maintenance needs – important benefits for the project architect, Pacific Architects, Inc., and the Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation.
The Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial was the vision of the Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation Founder Joan Gribbin-Aiu and recognizes fallen law enforcement officers in all branches in the state of Hawaii. The name plaques were engraved on black granite and a QR code was included for people to be able to scan the code and go to the
officer’s website to read his or her biography.
The architect wanted the memorial walls to be constructed of concrete as a simple, but durable material. Because the walls are built at an angle on earth berms, the architect had concerns about waterproofing from the back-side. Also, because of the corrosive environment, with salt from seawater being the primary destructive force, the architect required a solution with proven corrosion-protection capabilities. Hycrete solved this problem by waterproofing integrally throughout the concrete mix and New Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial Built With Hycrete coating the encased steel – helping the concrete to remain in fairly pristine condition with reduced maintenance requirements.
Hycrete is honored to donate its waterproofing and corrosion protection admixture for use in the project – a landmark achievement for the Hawaii Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation and members from all enforcement branches in the state. As a trusted solution to maximize concrete durability even in the most corrosive environments, Hycrete is excited to be a part of additional community projects in Hawaii and around the world.
