There are more than 200 zoos and aquariums¹, and more than 400 amusement parks² across the country that millions of people enjoy visiting each year. For some, it’s the opportunity to pet an exotic animal, and for others, it’s escaping to an adrenaline filled fantasy land. Whatever encourages someone to visit a zoo, aquarium or amusement park, the experience has to be exciting and authentic. In recent years, to bring realistic animal habitats to life and build seemingly unimaginable park rides, contractors have turned to advanced formula pre-blended stuccos. The ease-of-use, workability and long-term durability of advanced formula pre-blended stuccos provide contractors with the creative flexibility to deliver trademark features and exhibits at zoos, aquariums and amusement parks of all sizes.
The cohesive and non-sag characteristics of advanced formula pre-blended stuccos allow the material to be sculpted for extended periods of time. In addition, advanced formula pre-blended stuccos can be pumped long distances on jobsites without clogging, bleeding and segregation. Fibers and water retention admixtures are also often included in advanced formula pre-blended stuccos to help prevent shrinkage cracking in the face of hot, dry and windy weather during the installation process.
