Ultrasyntec laid a hygienic, resilient floor built to withstand the long-term rigours of an industrial, state-of-the-art food production plant.
|NEW START FOR ALCO VALVES GROUP:|
Ultrasyntec have recently finished a new flooring project for Radcliffe Construction at Alco Valves new state of the art facility at Brighouse, West Yorkshire, which went live for the start of 2017.
Alco have now moved all other sites to the new factory situated at Gooder Lane which will now produce a whole range of instrumentation valves for worldwide distribution.
The flooring was no different to the rest of the factory, it had to be tough, reliable, stand the test of time and look good!
The specification after captive shot blast, was to apply two low viscosity primers, then trowel apply heavy duty Epoxy Self Smoother to each colour coded area, once all sections were complete, we then added all demarcation lines and zebra crossings.
“The works were carried out on time and on budget, both myself and the client were very happy with the finish, I wouldn’t hesitate using Ultrasyntec again”

Ultrasyntec, were called in to carry out work for one of their existing customers.
Another extension had been built, to accept a new production line, for there ever growing business.
Both walls and floors needed coating, Breeze block walls were done in 3 coats of Emulsion, While the floor had a DPM Primer, followed by 2 x Coats of High Build Epoxy Coating.
The finish was superb, and all completed in 7 days.
“Another job well done”
When, were not applying Resin Systems, or Barring Screed, or digging out for drain installation, we are often installing UFH System’s across the north of England.
This was another example of the Nu-Heat Lo-Pro Max system, which has a overall thickness of 22 mm when the liquid screed has been applied.
The low-Pro Max, is a very good, cost effective flooring fit out, which releases excellent thermal qualities. When all pipework is fitted and connected to the different Manifolds, we pump apply a 22 mm self leveling screed, which is good to walk on the following day, allowing minimal down time, on a busy construction site.
Overall floor area was 245 metre square.
The Clifton Hotel group, needed a full refurbishment of one of their small indoor car parks, in order to make it look brighter and fresher, for their customer arrivals.
All walls, floors, and line markings needed applying, over the course of a working week.
As the building was very old, their was a lot of remedial work required prior to any paints, being applied.
Walls and ceilings enjoyed two heavy spray coats, then the floor got a Polyurethane primer, followed by 2 coats of UV stable polyurethane coating, with a dash of slip-resistant, for wet treys.
Finally, we incorporated all new car park bays.
One of our existing company’s had just completed the acquisition of another food processing plant in the midlands, for their ever growing group of company’s.
The plant was pretty much ready to go, apart from the floors, which had the dreadful, Vinyl already in place.
Lucky or not lucky for our men, was the fact that all the seams had already split, which meant the water from washing down had bled all under the covering, when the guys started ripping out, they are then left with a dreadful smell of stale dirty water. Another reason why, NEVER use industrial vinyl in a food prepossessing area!
The floor needed a full day to dry out, prior to a damp proof membrane being installed.
When cured, the area was laid with 9 mm Polyurethane screed, left to cure, then the following day, the cove’d skirting was installed.
Floor area: 265 M2
Ultrasyntec were delighted to receive the go ahead, for the new refurbishment of the production hall, at Shaw’s Huddersfield Ltd.
The tender included a sand and cement screed, with fall @ 1/50 mm . 45 meters of stainless steel drains,complete with fat trap’s. Final floor covering is a 9 mm thick Polyurethane screed, with cove’d skirting formed around the perimeter wall.
In the remainder of the factory was, floor and cove’d skirting repairs, as well as installing 30 meters of stainless steel sheet, to act as a kick plate around the lift shafts.
Stainless steel barriers also had to get installed around varies machines and walls.
The added pressure, was that we only had 9 days in which to get all work completed.
After floor preparation and all drain channels dug out, we had to lay the fast cure screed, followed by a DPM primer, to speed the floor covering up.
The next three days consisted of the construction of the stainless steel drains, and fat traps, once welded and polished, all channels had to be back filled, leaving 9 mm proud of the floor surface.
The entire area was again, primed with a damp proof membrane, then left to fully cure for 24 Hr.
On the arrival the following day, the 9 mm Polyurethane screed was laid, left to cure, this just left the cove’d skirting, to be installed.
We handed to job over on the last day, as agreed.
We are pleased to show the end result of a little project that came our way.
The owner wanted a decorative floor finish, that had to have some degree of slip-resistance , be ultra violet protected as well as chemical resistant, oh yes and have a fall from back to pool.
The answer was to create the fall using a sand & cement screed all around the pools perimeter, leave to cure for 48 hours.
Apply a DPM (damp proof membrane) primer, to act as a barrier from moisture left in the screed.
Using the best Epoxy & Polyurethanes, we were then able to apply a Flake System in the colours the customer chose, which was all sealed up in a UV stable. chemical resistant coating.
The finish was perfect in every aspect.
A local printing firm requested Ultrasyntec’s services, to give their factory floor a new lease of life. After years of ink spills, heavy traffic and day to day hammer, it was well in need of some TLC.
The printers needed the floor to be able to handle the ink spills as well as the busy traffic from fork truck activity, but most of all, it had to be cost effective.
We decided to go with a Polyurethane Coating (gloss)
The reason for this, is that the concrete still had a very good surface and was hard enough to accept a captive shot blast, for the preparation. Their were areas which we had to diamond grind, in order to take off the ink that had built up over the years.
When all preparation was finished, we then concentrated on repairing the floor. All joints / bolt holes and damaged concrete was then repaired using a two pack Epoxy filler, sanded down to a smooth finish.
Over the course of 3 days we then applied the Polyurethane Coating.
The area size was 4424 Metre Square, which was completed in 5 days.
” A very nice job, and great lads ”
