Abstract
BECKUS CORP INC PROPOSES TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP PRODUCTS WHICH WILL REVOLUTIONIZE THE STATE OF THE ART IN CONCRETE SEALANTS. MUCH OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH HAS ALREADY BEEN ACHIEVED IN THE COURSE OF DEVELOPING OTHER BECKUS PRODUCTS. BECKUS HAS DEVELOPED AND PATENTED THE ONLY KNOWN CURE FOR MASONRY EFFLORESCENCE. IN THE COURSE OF THIS AND MANY OTHER DISCOVERIES BECKUS HAS ACQUIRED THE SKILL AND TECHNOLOGY NECESSARY TO SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVE THE PROPOSED GOALS. AN UNDERSTANDING OF SURFACE TENSION, PENETRATION, CAPAILLARY ACTION, AND INTERNAL MOVEMENT OF MOISTURE IS THE BASIS OF SEVERAL BECKUS PRODUCTS. BECKUS HAS ALSO ACHIEVED ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY WHICH INCREASES THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT ARE TO PENTRATE CONCRETE TO A DEPTH OF 18 INCHES AND TO IMPART WATER REPLELENCY, RESTORATION, AND DURABILITY TO THE CONCRETE TO THE 18 INCH DEPTH OF PENETRATION. BECKUS IS CONFIDENT THAT WILL ACHIEVE THESE GOALS!
