The bund floor was found not to be level, which was suspected as the cause of the spitting of the composite chemical storage tanks.
As requested we put together a specification that would level the floor within +/- 1mm.
Preparing for the industrial floor
Initially all existing coatings were removed by method of diamond grinding to ensure that the new industrial flooring would adhere excellently to the concrete substrate.
Priming the floor
All surfaces to be treated were primed using Remmers Epoxy MT100 damp tolerant epoxy primer, which was fully blinded with quartz aggregate to provide an excellent mechanical anchor for the levelling compound.
Levelling the floor
Trims were affixed to the front edges of the two plinths and the required levels marked. Remmers Optiplan levelling compound was then applied using trowels.
Two plinths were also cast in place using Remmers Betofix R4.
Applying the resin flooring
To ensure a pin hole free finish all surfaces were double primed using Remmers Epoxy MT100. Remmers Epoxy WHG was then installed as a self smoother to a thickness of 2mm.
Remmers Epoxy WHG is both chemically resistant and flexible, making it the ideal industrial flooring specification for this application.
