Through the use of restorative products and systems such as Thin-Crete and Texture-Crete one can eliminate a variety of non-sustainable aspects associated with the removal of existing structurally sound concrete. Surfaces of outstanding beauty and durability can be achieved without the use of acids or VOCs with the application of Increte water based stains, sealers, and coatings.

As a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Increte Systems products and engineered systems offer excellent potential for the generation of a variety of LEED credits.

VOC-Regs

Through the implementation of national and local VOC rules, the paint and coatings industry has greatly reduced volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) products. These regulations have resulted in many products changing to high-solids and water-based formulations, which give off far less VOC emissions than their oil-based counterparts. Concrete construction products such as curing compounds, cure and seals, water repellent sealers, floor coatings, and form release compounds are included in national and local AIM regulations.
