Metallic Protectives – Engineering & Manufacturing Flooring
PSC Flooring have recently carried out a dilapidation project for Metallic Protectives Limited, Leamington Spa based company that specialises in the pre-treatment and powder coating of aluminium and steel.
Client Brief and Recommendation
At the site visit the client explained that they were moving out of the building and required the floor to be made good on a budget. It was noted that the 2500 square metre area had lots of cracks and holes that would need to be filled and there was residue to circa 200 square metres that would need to be removed before laying any flooring system. The recommendation was for a two coat, high build epoxy resin flooring system to be laid as this would be hardwearing even in the most arduous environments.
Preparation of Floor Surface
In order to prepare the existing concrete floor surfaces, including removing the residue apparent on circa 200 square metres, the floor was ground back using a totally enclosed diamond grinding machine and handheld 110v diamond grinder.
The area was then vacuumed clean ensuring that residues and dust were removed before repairs were made to localised damaged concrete, holes and cracks, as required using epoxy mortar compound and epoxy resin filler.
Epoxy resin flooring system to workshop area, 2395 square metres
The entire 2395 square metre workshop area was given two coats of KDR epoCoat in the clients chosen light grey. The work was completed in just 7 working days so the building could be handed back to the landlord.
