Who we are, how we started, what we do

Engineered in the lab and proven in the field Ghostshield is a leading global manufacturer of a wide range of innovative specialty concrete sealers, water and oil repellents, densifiers, durable coatings and structural waterproofing systems for the commercial and residential building sectors. The latest advances in nanotechnology and innovative chemistry are what drive the Ghostshield brand creating the most robust, supercharged and highest performance formulas in the industry. Having been a leader in underground waterproofing and directly involved with DeNeef Chemical, recently acquired by W.R Grace & Co. in 2011, our experience ranges across the globe.

Having been involved with iconic projects such as the Big Dig, the Channel Tunnel, Bjarke Ingels Group’s Grove at Grand Bay, Watchcase Condominiums in Sag Harbor (formerly the Bulova watch plant), Notre Dame, and the Zakim Bridge, Ghostshield’s Iso-Tek 8501 is the deepest penetrating, highest performing sealer on the market.

When architect Rafael Vinoly and Macklowe Properties embarked upon building the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere, 432 Park Ave, they knew no ordinary sealer was going to penetrate the 16,000 psi ultra high density reinforced concrete of the superstructure.

After extensive mockups, countless core samples and a year of testing, engineers and material scientist from two of the most respected firms in the industry unanimously concluded Ghostshield Iso-Tek 8501 achieved the deepest levels of penetration; penetrating beyond one inch into the ultra high density concrete, depths previously thought to be unobtainable.
