ASTEC CORPORATION has
developed a complete system of products to clean and maintain all
concrete vehicles and handling equipment - whether you are using the
bucket and brush method or a wash system applicator.
These products were designed to be a total system of
easy-to-use products that work together to clean, improve appearance,
and protect metal or painted metal surfaces.
With proper use, long term benefits of extended equipment life,
reduced maintenance costs, and like new appearance can be realized. Brief product descriptions follow:
your truck maintenance program with our SUPER NON-STICK COATING!:
duty, silicone-based release agent is designed to help keep cement and
concrete from sticking on concrete vehicles and handling equipment.
It is longer lasting and more durable than acrylic-based
coatings, easy to apply, and most importantly extends the life of
painted and bare metal surfaces.
It is especially effective when used on new trucks/equipment or
newly painted surfaces, because it dramatically reduces rust,
corrosion and oxidation.

has designed a complete foam applicator wash system for cleaning and
maintaining ready mix trucks, cement tanker vehicles and/or concrete
construction vehicles and handling equipment.
There is a system designed to meet the needs and requirements
of each customer, and will result in both product
cost savings and less wash maintenance time for personnel.
We start with a
selection of wash system applicators - air or airless, mobile or
stationery - each according to a customer’s situation and/or
desires. We use
stationery or fixed-type applicators manufactured by Lafferty
Equipment Mfg. Each
stationery unit (air or airless) comes complete with a 50’ hose
assembly. The mobile/handheld applicators are made by Hydro.
These units attach directly to any hose - they are especially
handy for the ready mix truck driver - he/she can hook up the unit to
the hose on their individual truck!
