Project Description

Such rooms normally represent a special challenge in terms of maintenance: water and oil leak from the machinery, right onto the concrete, leading to its damage and deterioration. We provide a long-lasting solution that ensures great-looking floors thanks to the use of our specialized materials.

Getting the flooring completely restored is a matter of three easy steps:

  1. The floor is shaved to remove paint and any other contaminants and oils. Having clean and exposed concrete is a must in order to ensure proper installation.
  2. Primer is applied. Our Polyforce Plus waterproofing primer anchors itself to concrete so perfectly that even if the new paint on top of it get scratched, the concrete will remain protected.
  3. The surface is painted while the primer is still curing: this creates adhesion between paint and concrete, so the paint cannot delaminate. This layer of paint serves both as a decorative coating and a second protective layer. 

If the room needs patching, the procedure is as follows:

  1. Delaminated and unsound concrete is removed.
  2. Polyforce Plus Adhesive is applied as an adhesive layer. Its impressive 1.85 MPa adhesive strength ensures monolithic bond.
  3. Within 40 minutes, the patch is applied. Regular cement is used to install the patch. Patches requiring less than a ¼ inch thickness are done with Polyforce Polymer Cement.

All crack repairs are done by following an easy three-step process:

  1. Cracks are routed with a saw to create a V-groove to prep the area for repair.
  2. Cracks are treated with Polyforce Plus Adhesive which ensures immediate and durable installation. 
  3. Cracks are filled with Polyforce Polymer Cement to complete the repair. 

Now the floor is as good as new, if not even better-looking and more durable!

Technical Details

Polyforce Plus Adhesive
The use of specialized product, Polyforce Plus Adhesive, permits restoration of the carrying capacity of the slab through monolithic concrete patching and crack repair, providing an alternative to complete slab recasting.

Polyforce Plus coating is tested to provide 25 years of freeze and thaw waterproofing with no degradation and water permeation. This material is rated to expand and contract with concrete, ensuring long-lasting adhesion of concrete patches due to its impressive 1.85 MPa adhesive strength (compared to 1.2 MPa tensile strength of the original concrete). This makes the patch and the old concrete slab work as one. 

Polyforce Plus, when mixed with basalt, achieves compressive strength of 150 MPa, making it ideal for surfaces that suffer high mechanical intrusion or increased and prolonged exposure to light acids.

Versatility of application and high strength of installation produce significant cost savings, when compared to traditional concrete repairs. 

Polyforce Polymer Cement
Polymer Cement was designed for fast and thin patch applications. When combining patch application of Polymer Cement with high-strength industrial concrete adhesives, many applications which would otherwise be too expensive to execute become cost-effective and feasible. Most typical applications include valley resurfacing, slope reversals, crack repair patches, and stair and balcony repairs. 

Polymer Cement is designed to perform in thicknesses ranging from 0.01 inches to 0.25 and beyond. The material performs at 99% dry finish volume. 

Polyforce Plus Primer
High-strength concrete primer is designed for two purposes: concrete waterproofing membrane and primer adhesive layer.

  1. Surface application of Polyforce Primer provides Waterproof Concrete Embedded Membrane rated to withstand 25 years of freeze and thaw cycles.
  2. Increased adhesive qualities of the primer eliminate surface debonding of top coat paint application. 

Polyforce Plus, when mixed with basalt, achieves compressive strength of 150 MPa, making it ideal for surfaces that suffer high mechanical intrusion or increased and prolonged exposure to light acids.

Versatility of application and high strength of installation produce significant cost savings, when compared to traditional concrete repairs.
