DTV NEVADA TOWER use of Elephant Armor
The DTV Nevada Tower site is at 9,750 feet in the Tahoe National Forest overlooking Lake Tahoe. The tower foundation was poured in 2000 and since 2010 the cracks and spalling have increased in depth after every freeze and thaw cycle. When the rebar was starting to show it was very clear we needed to find a repair.
We investigated Epoxy with PPG and that required yearly maintenance. The conventional solution of encapsulation would be difficult and costly at 9,750 feet for trucks or helicopters. Elephant Armor provided a means to make the repair a reality in 2014 and also provide a maintenance free solution. This new material is a game changer for Tower Foundations.

Thanks for demonstrating your product for us. My crew found the Elephant Armor easy to use with the hands on demo. They were happy with the ability to free form the product on our older bridge structures with minimal effort. Working vertical or horizontal the Elephant Armor stayed where it was put and set up form free. After 2 weeks and below freezing temperatures with snow and rain there was been no shrinkage or any type of separation from the original structure. The product mixes easily, clean up was just as easy.

I'm quite sure no one has ever attempted finishing a 1/2 inch cementitious overlay using a hydraulic riding trowel…Until Now! The tensile and flexural strength of this material is off the charts! Elephant Armor is a real breakthrough in overlay technology!

We patched asphalt with Elephant Armor, including an area with a transition from concrete to asphalt. The asphalt we patched was alligatored and nasty. Now, we have forklifts running over it, tractor-trailers running over it. There really isn’t anything similar. This stuff just does not crack.
