Polycast Commercial / Concrete
Polycast concrete trench drains are your solution to commercial-size drainage problems. Polycast’s trench drains beat ACO trench drain, MEA-Josam, and JR Smith trench drain in side-by-side comparisons. With numerous technical advantages, Polycast trench drains win out over ACO trench drains and similar MEA drain products.
Polycast brand commercial trench drains offer customers a broad range of polymer concrete channels and trench grating. Choose from lightweight galvanized or stainless steel grates, decorative cast iron grating or durable iron grates to match any type of project. Polycast commercial trench drains also offer HDPE and fiberglass grates for applications involving corrosive environments.
Benefits of using Polymer Concrete:
Polymer concrete trench drains have a water absorption rate around 1 percent. Polymer concrete channels create less friction because of the resin bonding process, allowing water to flow more efficiently.
With compressive strengths of 11,000 PSI or higher, the compressive strength of polymer concrete trench drains is 3 to 4 times stronger than standard concretes.
Like most polymers, polymer concrete is resistant to a number of harmful chemicals that are corrosive to traditional concrete. The resin in polymer concrete wraps a protective coating around the aggregate material to keep alkalis and acids from eating through the product.
Freeze-thaw happens when water seeps into the pores of concrete and expands as the temperature drops below freezing. The low porosity of polymer concrete trench drain systems stops water penetration and reduces the likelihood of freeze-thaw occurring.
