The industrial floor coating industry presents aggressive environments including chemical attack from CIP cleaners, caustics, oil as well as thermal shock and severe impact and abrasion. The following systems are installed by ProTech to meet demands:
ProTech is a concrete restoration specialist. Materials used range from polymer cement to epoxy and urethane mortar. In conditions that require a structural repair that is fast setting, impact/ chemical resistant in wet, oily or frozen surfaces, ProTech can provide the right repair for the job.
Damaged expansion joints in floors create a safety hazard for building occupants. Additionally, forklift tires and electrical components are easily damaged due to impact vibration and operator fatigue increases every time a lift moves over the joint. In high production warehouse environments, that may be several hundred times per shift. While joints are a maintenance item, knowing the proper methods and materials reduces the frequency of repairs.
For moving slabs and void filling, ProTech uses Polyurethane Foam for a rapid return to service. Cured in 15 minutes, holes are drilled and a foam is injected to stabilize and lift slabs.
For durability in production and storage areas or to rehabilitate existing damaged floors, Epoxy Mortar may power troweled at 3/16” thickness. Once dry, the Epoxy Overlayment is patched, ground and grouted with thickened epoxy to seal. The final finish varies from Chemical Resistant Epoxy to High-Performance Urethane topcoats.
Urethane Mortar is a solvent-free, rapid curing system that can be applied to damp, oil contaminated substrates. Designed to withstand steam, chemicals, and extreme physical abuse, Urethane Mortar is the most durable floor system on the market. For increased chemical resistance, ProTech has engineered and can install MMA and Vinyl Ester topcoats to meet customer needs.
GROUND & POLISHED CONCRETE
After joint stabilization and concrete repair, warehouse floors may be ground to smooth. When combined with polishing, finishes vary from matte to high gloss. Ordinary floors are transformed from damaged and uneven with moving joints to an easy-to-clean showroom surface. Additional benefits include increased lighting, reduced forklift maintenance and reduced operator fatigue.
