Warehouse Epoxy Flooring
Project Overview: Warehouse Epoxy Flooring System
Existing Conditions: The existing concrete slab had an extensive crack throughout the floor, especially along the joints.
Preparation of existing condition: The prep was done using two diamond grinders. Our first day consisted of 10 hours of diamond grinding to remove any surface contaminants and establish a mechanical profile for an adequate bond to the existing substrate. Beyond grinding and edging, our crew applied multiple epoxy patch repair kits to minimize the chances of incurring any damage to this 60-year-old building. Thereafter, we removed any divots, scratches, or pockmarks deeper than 1/2 inch.
Products Installed: Following our prep and patchwork, we installed our prime coat of 100% solid epoxy at a spread rate of 8-10 mils. After allowing for 8 hours of cure on the primer, we applied the wear coat or body coat at 10-12 mils. We also used an anti-slip additive to ensure workplace safety. Finally, an aliphatic urethane topcoat was installed to create an easy to maintain, scratch resistant and aesthetically pleasing seamless floor surface.
Conclusion: In the end, we were able to complete this 20,000 SF warehouse space in just 48 hours. We came in over the weekend and were able to leave our client with a fully functional warehouse epoxy flooring system on Monday.
