Leading Edge Labels Ltd – Engineering And Manufacturing Flooring
PSC were called in by an existing client, Leading Edge labels and Packaging of Gravesend in Kent to look at their H2 area. Leading Edge Labels and Packaging – one of the largest HD FLexo packaging printers in the UK had a 201 square metre area that was covered with latex screed and failed floor paint.
As with the previous areas, The printing production area is a high traffic area with a variety of equipment, staff and forklift traffic so the client required a hardwearing, durable and attractive floor that specifically was highly reflective to ensure the working space was as well lit as possible. Recognising the clients needs it was recommended to continue the space with a nominal 3mm self-smoothing epoxy resin screed floor.
In order to remove the existing laytex screed and failed floor paint from the 201 square metre area the floor area was ground back. A totally enclose double headed diamond grinding machine was used to remove the laytex screed and failed floor paint, thoroughly clean and prepare existing concrete floor. All edgework and hard to reach areas were prepared using a totally enclosed hand held 110v diamond grinder and the total area was vacuumed clean of all residues and dust. Repairs were carried out to localised damaged concrete as required using resin screed.
201 sqm nominal 3mm Resdev Pumaflow epoxy resin screed
In order to prevent an air rising two coats of Resdev Pumaprime epoxy resin priming system were applied to total floor area before the nominal 3mm Resdev Pumaflow self-smoothing, epoxy resin screed, in the clients chosen gloss, mid blue.
The 3mm x 6mm expansion joints, were recut, knocked out and infilled with matching jointing compound to circa 35 linear metres. The job was completed in just 4 days, on budget and on time.
“We have used PSC before and find them extremely accommodating and helpful. The floor has once again turned out exactly as we wanted. Happy to recommend them as a company and use them again in the future.”
