Additional Job Portfolios & Highlights
Oil leaks had stained the floor of this municipal garage. We removed the old coating system and prepared the surface with shot-blasting and diamond grinding. We then installed an oil-tolerant epoxy primer over the contaminated concrete. Two coats of 100% solids epoxy were followed with a top coat of urethane impregnated with an aluminum oxide. This treatment provided a non-skid surface in addition to extending the life of the floor. General Polymer products were used.
Impact Resistant Epoxy
This automotive components factory had a very worn and contaminated concrete floor. The clients needed a floor that would withstand vibrations in the concrete and offer impact-resistance to their operation. We installed a slurry MER (Mechanical and Equipment Room) system with a smooth finish, meeting client needs and providing an easily cleanable floor surface for removal of cutting oils.
Waterproofing Deck System
The existing urethane membrane on this hospital parking deck had failed and was allowing water to leak in to the office spaces below. We started the repairs by removing the old membrane using UHP water blasting, diamond tooling and a Skid Steer mounted scraper blade. Once all the old coating had been removed (approximately 70,000 square feet) the transition joints at the curbing as well as the expansion joints were routed with a diamond blade and sealed using two-component urethane joint fillers. Curbing was re-tooled using non-sag caulking materials. A new urethane membrane was applied in a three-coat system. The parking deck remained open throughout the process. The urethane membrane is a product of The Sonneborne Company.
This job called for an installation of 1/4 inch power-troweled mortar with a very aggressive non-skid finish meant to protect workers from slipping on manufacturing residues that collect on the floor. A custom red color was chosen to diminish process residue between regular cleanings. This flooring system needed to be long lasting and durable, not only for frequent cleaning but also to hold up to the wear and tear of intensive forklift usage. This is a system made by General Polymers.
Moisture Remediation System
High moisture vapor levels in this laboratory led to failure of the previous floor coatings. The client required a solution to this problem, as well as a smooth, level, easily cleanable floor that would be visually appealing for customer walkthroughs. We removed all prior coatings and took the floor back to a shot blasted profile. We applied an Aqua Fin moisture remediation system and then installed a three-coat, smooth epoxy finish. General Polymer products were used.
Decorative Concrete Stain
The client desired an aquatic feeling for their entrance and hallways. We started with a substrate of new concrete. Prior to the framework being installed, we scored the concrete with saw cuts set on the diagonal to produce a marble/stone effect. We then applied an acid stain in a blue/copper patina. In order to intensify the blue color we added a tinted translucent urethane followed by a final clear coat of the same urethane, with very effective results. The products used were Kemiko stain with a Devoe urethane finish.
Beauty combined with ease of cleaning was the requirement for this floor in a new dental office. The concrete was acid stained with two applications of Terra Cotta, then sealed with a base coat of gloss and a top coat of satin solvent borne sealer. The combination of gloss and satin sealers provides depth and a softer finish. The products used were provided by the L.M. Scoffield Company.
