In abrasion resistance tests, PENESEAL FH-treated concrete was up to 80% more resistant to the type of wear found in heavy-traffic applications.

Logistics (shipping/trucking) centers are heavy-traffic, 24/7 operations that demand the extraordinarily durable infrastructure that PENETRON technology provides. Small wonder that PENESEAL FH sealer was specified to harden the concrete floors of the new Solog shipping hub in Vietnam to provide a reliable and permanent solution.
Once a nation ravaged by decades of war, Vietnam’s economic boom over the past 25 years has turned it into one of Asia’s great success stories. Shifting from an agricultural to a manufacturing and services-based economy, the country joined the World Trade Organization in 2007 and massively increased trade with the United States.
Solog Corporation is a logistics company typical of the new Vietnam. Specializing in container shipping and with a logistics hub (147,000 m2 / 1,582,295 square feet) in Binh Duong province (near Ho Chi Minh City), Solog needed to add capacity to keep up with growth. Opened in April, the hub in Bien Hoa (northeast of HCM) adds much-needed storage capacity to the company’s expanding shipping network.
“Warehousing and logistics are a vital service in Vietnam’s growing economy,” adds Kim Khanh, Managing Director of PENETRON Vietnam. “Solog is known for its focus on using the latest information technologies to ensure on-time and integrated shipping services. The company’s choice of PENETRON technology for its newest shipping hub was a logical – and high performance – choice.”
PENESEAL FH sealer was used to treat 40,000 m2 (430,560 square feet) of floor space to harden the concrete and enable it to withstand industrial-level traffic. Once applied, PENESEAL FH penetrates into the concrete surface and reacts with the free lime and alkali to form a solid (and denser) mass. This locks the pores and capillaries, permanently sealing the concrete.
“In abrasion resistance tests, PENESEAL FH-treated concrete was up to 80% more resistant to the type of wear found in heavy-traffic applications,” says Jozef Van Beeck, Director, PENETRON International Sales & Marketing. “By creating a traffic-resistant and self-polishing floor surface, PENESEAL FH can actually improve floor appearance with increased use.”
