Emballator Packaging contacted UltraSyntec regarding a problem area of flooring, where an old cementitious screed was deteriorating at a rapid rate. The company was also experiencing problems with dust as well as coping with an uneven surface which was not suitable for the printing machinery installed in the area.
The solution was to remove the 2mm cementitious screed using brakers and industrial diamond grinders. Once the screed had been removed down to the substrate, this was then primed and left to cure overnight.
The following day, UltraSyntec laid a 3mm epoxy self smoothing flooring system which created an even, smooth and shiny floor. As the customer would be using chemical agents on the printing machinery and spills and splashes were likely to occur, UltraSyntec also specified a seal coat over the whole area to increase resistance to chemical attack.
“A job well done!”
