ICC-ES Code Compliant
(ESR-1637 & ESR-2492)
Quality Systems, Inc. (QSI) is pleased to announce full compliance for Thermal and Moisture Protection code criteria by the ICC-ES (ICC Evaluation Service, Inc.) for both vertical and horizontal surface applications in evaluation reports ESR-1637 & ESR-2492 on commercial and residential installations for its proprietary line of premium, high-strength PermaCrete surface coating products. Additionally, PermaCrete continues to expand its widespread applications as the exterior surface over Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction, the fastest growing residential and commercial building material in the US and Canada," said George A. Henderson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the eighteen year-old company which manufactures the products. The ICC-ES evaluation reports for the acceptability and compliance of building materials in code-required construction are highly-regarded by local building officials throughout the U.S.
Although the PermaCrete product line, which is distributed worldwide by over 1,200 Dealers, also includes epoxies, urethanes, sealers, caulks, cleaners, strippers and bonding additives, its exclusive cementitious surface products have gained considerable recognition in the past eighteen years as a premium concrete resurfacing material that's used in the homebuilding industry as well as on vehicular and pedestrian traffic areas, even including interstate highway bridges and airport runway surfaces.
PermaCrete's acrylic polymer cement compound of over 6,000 PSI compressive strength is applied over concrete, masonry, aggregate, foam and steel, and provides an architectural surface of unusual strength and flexibility with twice the overall strength and endurance as that of standard concrete. It's extremely resistant to stains from oil, mildew, salt or water as well as to industrial chemicals, and equally withstands freeze-thaw cycles, intense heat and ultraviolet sunrays. Its sealed and non-porous surface, available in virtually any color or design, provides easy maintenance by using common cleaning agents before hosing it clean.
For the past eighteen years, Quality Systems, Inc. has been distributing PermaCrete products which are manufactured in the firm's state-of-the-art, three acre corporate facility in Nashville, Tennessee.
