Recently Dennis Olsen of Harrisonburg Epoxy flooring was asked if there was anything they could do for the Bridgewater Water Treatment facility to permanently fix the concrete and to update it. Dennis used the Sani-Tred system to repair cracks, spalling and popping. Providing a durable decorative surface that will provide many years of safe service.
The X-5000 Dynamometer Car was originally designed and built by the Milwaukee Road (designers Vern Green and Leonard Lentz) at the Milwaukee Shops in 1930 to measure steam locomotive output by means of a large hydraulic unit spliced into the center sill called a dynamometer unit that generates a hydraulic pressure proportional to the drawbar pull or buff (push) measured at the coupler of car.
Warren Newhauser, an Illinois Railway Museum member involved in restoring Milwaukee Road Dynamometer car X-5000, said in his own words: “Another product we used for waterproofing the roof is from a company called www.Sanitred.com. They make a “Permaflex” urethane waterproof compound that will adhere to less than ideally prepped surfaces, which is what we had. It was designed for metal roofs. They also make a calk called “Liquid Rubber Base” which can fill gaps, spaces, etc. like caulk. We have found nothing else that will seal the roof like this stuff. It is unbelievable how well it works. It literally saved our car from incessent roof leaks. Not cheap, but worth every penny too. Our sandblasting contractor uses it all the time and recommended it.”
Wanting to completely waterproof his basement, one of our employees decided that this weekend was the time to solve any types of future problems that could potentially happen. Since this was a new basement without any previously applied coating or sealer, all that was required was that the surface of the walls were free of excess dust.
After brooming the walls, he mixed up his prime coat of PermaFlex™ with catalyst/accelerator and then added solvent to thin. A couple of ounces of black PermaFlex™ per gallon of white PermaFlex™ were added to slightly tint the prime coat a darker color to make it much easier to see where he needed to roll for his final white coat.
Andy Franklin one of our head tech guys used SANI-TRED® to waterproof the basement exterior on his new home. Sealing and keeping water out of your basement is extremely important . . . and using the right product after your basement walls have been poured is a critical step in making sure your basement stays nice and dry!
Exterior Waterproofing Sealants versus SANI-TRED
When it comes to exterior waterproofing builders often specify an asphalt-based waterproofing product below grade. While this does provide adequate protection in the short term it isn’t a long-lasting solution. In addition, erosion can often reveal an unsightly black texture that clashes with the rest of the exterior of the home.
Sani-Tred is a permanent exterior or interior foundation sealant that is permanent and available in multiple colors. There is no need to reapply our coating every few years to maintain a waterproof foundation.

“Based on my experiences restoring fountains and creating art installations, have been a committed SaniTred evangelist for quite a while! As you know, and as a often explain, its a really fantastic product with unique durability and longevity.Ive used SaniTred to restore broken fountains and art installations, but American Aqueduct is probably my favorite project that showed off its capabilities.
Josh Owens of Owens Concrete Staining recently completed a beautiful stained concrete floor using Sani-Tred a Moisture Vapor Control Coating. Moisture Vapor Transmission is a leading cause of coating failure, but Sani-Tred can hold up to even the most extreme MVT. Josh said, “this floor had a high moisture reading and was causing the current sealed floor to fail. We decided to use Permaflex as the vapor barrier before resurfacing the floor and designing, staining, and sealing with a solvent urethane.”
Recently Superior Woodworking located in the Metro Detroit area remodeled a wet basement using Sani-Tred. The remodel was custom finished basement with 1\2 bath, wet bar, flat screen and kegerator. Water was an issue in this basement so the walls and floor had to be completely stripped of any paint or sealer. The entire basement was then sealed with a product SaniTred and finished as you see here.
