Resin Floor Repairs Case Study
CLIENT: North East Motor Manufacturing Company
PROJECT: Manufacturing Warehouse, Sunderland.
Open construction joints through the warehouse areas were causing major problems with vital parts being rejected due to damage after the trucks bounced over the joints some of which were as much as 50mm wide and 50mm higher than the adjacent floor.
Specialist Contractor, Reprotec UK Ltd was given the problem and asked to supply the solution.
Floor area either side of the offending joints were first diamond ground to reduce the concrete height back down to an even level.
The expansion or movement joints were sawcut prior to infilling with Floor Doctor Rapid (a fast cure concrete repair epoxy mortar) and once hardened the joints were re cut and then infilled using the Joint Doctor (a flexible joint sealant) in a grey-colour floor topping and filling with an epoxy expansion sealant.
The client was delighted with the floor repairs and the savings made in lower rejected parts.
