Advanced Protective Products provide the ultimate in structure protection against destructive and dangerous elements i.e. fire, wind, floods, UV, ozone, mold, dry rot, roof puddles, structural movement, faulty materials and workmanship.
Here's a demonstration of our Tuff-Con Fireproofing
NOTE #1 – The combination of Tuff-Con’s protection against fire, heat, cold, UV, ozone and destructive weather and Tuff-Rubber’s water and vapor resistant seamless membrane provides many additional years of trouble-free service
Tuff-Con provides BUR protection from damaging winds:
APPC ROOF SYSTEMS – Not only protect against destructive weather and other destructive elements, they also provide:
Complete fire resistance
Built-in waterproofing – Buried under Tuff-Con and protected from elements.
8-80 “R” rated insulation – Against both cold and heat
Wind resistant – 100% adhered Tuff-Con surface is a structural diaphragm
No water puddles – Tuff-Con surfacing replaces all standing water or allows water to pass through to drains
Cooler interior - Tuff-Con resists excessive heat from entering structures, thus eliminating the growth of mold and preventing dry rot
People traffic safe – No disruption of waterproofing integrity
Tuff-Con’s ability to reduce structural movement due to temperature variations
UV and ozone degradation – Tuff-Con is resistant to both
NOTE: All of the above produce 20 -40% less weight and extends longevity
POND PATCHING -
For flat or low-sloped roofs with "birdbath"-type ponding (standing water), mix Tuff-Con Complete Mix with water to form a workable slurry. Fill birdbaths and screed surface level with roof surfaces. When dried, Tuff-Con is extremely lightweight. The Tuff-Con will displace the water and 3/4 of the waters' weight.
ROOF STUCTURES, SURFACING AND SYSTEMS – NEW OR EXISTING – APPC systems employ fluid-applied Tuff-Rubber at the base of TC-500 Tuff-Con to provide completely protected waterproofing and Tuff-Con surfacing to provide insulation, fireproofing, longevity and occasional foot traffic. You can see these products being employed in the photos and detail drawings below.
SURFACING - Apply one coat of TR-930 and allow to cure. Apply a second coat of TR-930 and lay Reinforcement Mesh onto and into the wet rubber. Allow to cure. The surface is now waterproof. Screed or spray-apply Tuff-Con at a minimum of 1/2" thickness onto the embedded Reinforcement Mesh, which fireproofs and insulates the entire roof. The roof surface is now UL Class "A" Certified. Allow a minimum of 24 hours before any foot traffic.

APPC TRAFFIC DECKS – PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC AREAS – SURFACING AND WATERPROOFING:
For several years, a cured layer of fluid-applied elastomeric coating has been the norm for traffic area waterproofing. We decided better and less expensive systems would please everyone, i.e. designers, contractors and owners alike would welcome them for several reasons.
PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC AREA WATERPROOFING AND SURFACING
AFTER 50 YEARS OF DESIGNING MANY OF THE ORIGINAL FLUID-APPLIED DECK WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS AND WATCHING REGULAR CERAMIC TILE BEING USED ONTO THE WATERPROOFING PART OF OUR TYPICAL SYSTEMS WE DECIDED TO MANUFACTURE OUR OWN SURFACE PLATES. THEY HAVE CUT THE COST OF TOTAL INSTALLATION, REDUCED THE INSTALLATION TIME DUE TO LESS LABOR/RETURN TRIPS AND TRYING TO FINISH THEM TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE CUSTOMER. BEING PRE-MANUFACTURED, YOU GET WHAT YOU SELECTED, USUALLY AFTER 2 SIMPLE MOVE-INS FOR COMPLETION. THESE PLATES ARE COMPLETLY MANUFACTURED AND FINISHED UNDER TIGHTLY CONTROLLED CONDITIONS. VECAUSE OF THIS CONTROL, ONCE THE CUSTOMER SELECTS THE FINISH, COLOR OR DESIGN, THEY RECEIVE THE SAME.
WHY CHOOSE APPC PEDESRIAN TRAFFIC PLATES?
ONLY TWO REQUIRED PRODUCTS FOR MOST PROJECTS:
1. Tuff-Rubber fluid-applied, vapor resistant, seamless and tenaciously adhesive waterproofing sealant laminating membrane medium.
2. Complete 12” x 12” Pedestrian Traffic Plates in several attractive colors.
FAST AND SIMPLE INSTALLATION:
The entire installation of the plates is quite simple, can be completed in a couple of move-ins and be ready for use a few hours later.
THIS SYSTEM PROVIDES:
Wonderful attractive aesthetic appearance
Little to no maintenance
Little to no damage from UV, weather, use and most other-type destructive elements
Resists fire, heat, dropped burning objects, etc.
Less surface heat during extremely hot weather
Attractive non-skid surface
May be freshened with a good water-based clear sealer
May be recoated with a good water-based stain in the same or different color
Can double or triple the longevity of most other systems
NOTE: THE SPECIFICATION FOR PLATE SYSTEM IS IN THE TD-4000 SYSTEM FOR OUR TYPICAL LIQUID-APPLIED SYSTEM.
APPC COLOR SELECTIONS
APPC BELOW GRADE WATERPROOFING:
Employs Tuff-Rubber; aggressively adhesive, extremely elongative properties (700 - 800%), vapor and water resistant membrane on:
Fresh green poured concrete walls and floors
Concrete-filled block walls
Base or Between-Slab membrane
Interior and exterior pond liners
PLANTERS AT DEL AMO AND CYPRESS SHOPPING CENTER (pictured at left) WERE WATERPROOFED AND PROTECTED WITH TUFF-CON IN ORDER TO CONFORM TO THE CURVATURE OF THE WALLS.
NOTE: THIS IS THE SAME WAY TUFF-CON IS SPRAY-APPLIED ON HUGE ROOF SURFACES.
THESE SYSTEMS ARE
100% ADHERED TO THE SUBSTRATE
OUR SHINGLES ARE AVAILABLE AS SIMULATED SHAKE SHINGLES OR SIMULATED SLATE SHINGLES AND ARE AVAILABLE IN A VARIETY OF COLORS. THEY MAY BE RE-COLORED AT ANY TIME DURING THEIR EXTENDED LONGEVITY
OUR SHINGLES EMPLOY TUFF-RUBBER; AGGRESSIVELY ADHESIVE, EXTREMELY ELONGATIVE PROPERTIES (700-800%), VAPOR AND WATER RESISTANT MEMBRANE
TUFF-RUBBER IS ALSO EMPLOYED AS A BASE FOR SPRAY-IN-PLACE TUFF-CON FIREPROOFING INSULATION.
OUR SHINGLES ARE LESS THAN 1/2 THE WEIGHT OF MOST CEMENT OR CLAY SHINGLES.
THEY ARE COMPLETELY FIREPROOF, ALLOWING NO FLYING EMBERS INTO OR UNDER THE SHINGLE.
THEY ARE AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL STYLES AND COLORS, INCLUDING SIMULATED WOOD SHAKE SHINGLES OR SLATE SHINGLES - ALL WITH BEAUTIFUL AESTHETICS.
THEY ARE ALSO 100% ADHERED TO THE ROOF SUBSTRATE, ELIMINATING ANY LOOSE-LAID BASE SHEET AND THE THREAT OF STRONG WIND BLOW-OFF. BECAUSE THEY ARE ADHERED IN THIS MANNER, THERE'S NO WORRY ABOUT SHINGLES LOOSENING IN ANY WAY DUE TO THERMAL STUCTURAL MOVEMENT.
THE SAME BASE APPLICATION (TUFF-RUBBER) FOR INSTALLING OUR SHINGLE CAN ALSO BE EMPLOYED WITH THE ADDITION OF ONE LAYER OF REINFORCEMENT MESH. ONCE CURED, THIS SURFACE IS PREADY TO ACCEPT TUFF-CON IN EITHER SCREED OR SPRAY-ON APPLICATION.
These shingles are:
100% adhered to the substrate
Our shingles are available as simulated shake shingles or simulated slate shingles in a variety of colors. They may be re-colored at any time during their extended longevity.

- Artistic conception of two of our panelized structures -
We have designed the structure items to be completely manufactured in our factory, or facilities anywhere in the world, packaged and sold, or sold and shipped to any location. They are designed to be completely assembled in a few hours, added onto and self-sustaining when various utilities are not available i.e. water, gas, electricity, plumbing, etc. Propane and plumbing may be added. Electrical plugs, switches and conduits may be added for electrical power (generator, utility or solar). A 50 gallon water tank could be installed in an elevated position for fresh drinking water, cooking, bathing, etc. They can also be disassembled, moved to another location and reassembled. We envision these structures could be some of the best for temporary housing (homeless shelter), or as a guest facility assembled on your property. The excellent insulation attributes of our systems enhance all
