Industrial flooring

  2. 2. “INDUSTRIAL FLOORING”Floors in industry and commerceare not just parts of a structure.Industrial floors are heavilyexposed to stress. Manyproduction processes andprocedures take place on thesefloors. They are also exposed toindustrial chemicals. On top ofthis, industrial floors also haveto meet a variety of operationalrequirements. Slip resistance,crack bridging, non-flammability,conductivity, aesthetics, ease ofmaintenance, and, last but notleast, long life – these are just afew examples of theexpectations for functionalindustrial floors.CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALINGIDEAL SOLUTIONS

  4. 4. CONCEPTEvery industrial floor consist of twoelements;Element 1, the base course, whichalways consists of the structuralreinforced concrete slab. Thepurpose of this “load-bearing”course is to absorb or distributestatic and dynamic loads.Element 2, the wearing course isthe dominant part. The wearingcourse protects the floor fromphysical and/or chemical attack.The wearing course also has tomeet the individual operationaldemands.Each element has its function,which is precisely defined. Anindustrial Floor can not be high –quality unless both the base courseand the wearing course meet all ofthe requirements.CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALINGIDEAL SOLUTIONS
  5. 5. Two factors are particularlyimportant in the construction ordesign of a high quality yeteconomic industrial floor:- The Operational Requirements- The Selection, Analysis AndPreparation Of A SuitableSubstrate.To select the right coating system,both must be examined in detailand coordinated. This is the onlyway to ensure that the industrialflooring meets the requirementsof the project – cost effectiveand just right for the application.CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALINGIDEAL SOLUTIONS
  6. 6. OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTSThe application and the severityof the operational requirementscan vary widely. Below are a fewexamples of typical exposures;1.Mechanical Exposure From:Pedestrian and/or vehiculartraffic, Low and light lift trucks,Transport containers, such aspallets, steel mesh boxes,containers, drums, reel holdersetc., Weight of tools / products/machines, Abrasion, shock andimpact (broken glass etc.)CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALINGIDEAL SOLUTIONS
  7. 7. CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALING2. Chemical Attack From:Oil, greases, Soluble salts,Alkalis, acids, Fuels, solvent,Cleaning agents etc3. Thermal Stress From:-Heat: Short term by steamcleaning etc, Long term in specificproduction areas.- Cold: Short term by shock, opendoors, etc, Long term in specificproduction areas, cold storage etc.4.Weathering, Mainly On ExternalSunlight, UV, Frost, thermalshock, Rain5.AestheticsColour, design/coding, Colouredchips, Gloss/ MattIDEAL SOLUTIONS

  10. 10. CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALINGSelection, Analysis And PreparationOf A Suitable SubstrateThe second and equallyimportant factor inselection of a suitablewearing course is the typeof substrate and itscondition. Any wearingcourse can only be asgood as its base. If theload- bearing course orsubstrate is defectiveeven the best and mostexpensive wearing coursecannot improve it.IDEAL SOLUTIONS

CONCRETE REPAIR EPOXY FLOORING WATERPROOFING JOINT SEALING1.Base Courses/ Substrates- Concrete- Cement/granolithicscreed/overlay- anhydrite screed- Magnesite screed- poured asphalt- old coatings- Ceramic tiles- Timber boards- Steel2.Location Of The Substrate- Internal areas- External exposed- On garde /no d.p.m- Risk of rising damp- without insulationIDEAL SOLUTIONS

Substrate Condition- Age (new or old), Moisture content,- surface profile- Density- Porosity- Brittle- Dehydrated- Physical strength- Compressive- Pull-off- surface harness4. Contamination- Dust, laitance- Oils, greases- Acids, alkalis- Paints, plastics- Fuels, solvents5. Damages- Shrinkage, isolation or settlementcracks- Sapling, voids- Roughness, erosion- Joint damage, broken arisesIDEAL SOLUTIONS
