Industrial Flooring Norwich
As part of the installation of new parts washing equipment the old industrial floor required refurbishment with a chemical resistant resin floor.
We proposed the removal of all existing finishes prior to the application of Remmers Epoxy WHG self smoother at a thickness of 3mm as the most suitable industrial flooring solution.
Preparing the floor
The existing tiles and resin finished were first removed using vibration damped breakers. The preparation revealed two drain covers which had incorrectly been buried by previous contractors which has resulted in cracking in the old resin finishes. The corrosion present on these covers was removed prior to priming using Corroless EPF rust stabilising epoxy primer to prevent corrosion continuing under the new industrial floor.
Repairing and priming the floor
The previously broken out areas were repaired using a fast curing cementitious repair mortar. Once cured the floor was double primed using Remmers Epoxy MT100 damp tolerant primer. The additional benefit of this primer is that it forms a liquid DPM once cured, giving reassurance on this old industrial floor where it could not be ascertained if a damp proof membrane was present.
Applying the new floor
Once satisfied with the preparation and priming works Remmers Epoxy WHG Colour was applied by trowel to a thickness of 3mm. We selected this material due to its excellent chemical resistance and crack bridging properties. This should avoid the reflective cracking that the client had witnessed in their old industrial flooring.
Painting the Walls
To improve the overall appearance of the area the client also asked us to refurbish the walls. This was undertaken using a flexible acrylic coating system as previously used elsewhere on site.
