Renovation Project

System: Freedom Chemical Guardian-PD
Completion Date: January 2023
New Construction or Renovation: This is a renovation project

Client: Paradise Pier Hotel – Anaheim Resort
Location: Anaheim, California
Sub-Contractor: Best Contracting Services
Architect/Specifier/Consultant: D-7 Consulting

Solution: D-7 Consulting selected Freedom Chemical’s Guardian-PD for Podium Deck applications utilizing an epoxy primer designed to treat new and existing concrete.  The combination of the products used provided excellent thermal stability; abrasion and chemical resistance; color and gloss retention; and durable installations with no odor, which was ideal for the 35,000 sq ft pool area.  For example, Freedom Chemical’s Freedom Tuff 6160 is a two component 100% solids epoxy primer designed to treat new and existing concrete, masonry and wood.  Freedom Chemical’s Freedom Tuff 2216 is a fast setting, rapid curing, two-component modified aromatic spray polyurea, used as a general-purpose protective coating, that is flexible, abrasion, and impact resistant. Lastly, Freedom Chemical’s Freedom Tuff FT-9500 QF and FT-1095 Tape were used for fast cure and flexible application.  The FT-9500 has a low viscosity which allows for fast crack concrete repair.

Challenge: The hotel remained open which required a fast return of service.  A protective coating to be applied to the 35,000 square feet pool area, which needed to be flexible and abrasion resistant, fast application, no odor and rapid curing.  No protection board required which allowed other trades on coating within hours.


The FreedomTuff® product line is a revelation of what Polyureas, Polyurethanes, Polyaspartics and Epoxies are about. When so many products have been “made” for maximum impact, at Freedom® Chemical Corporation we’ve been content to let our products speak quietly. No need to shout when you have something special to say.
