Protecting concrete usually means shielding it from the elements of nature or from harsh manmade chemicals. But it’s not just concrete that needs such protection. Corrugated metal pipe, steel surfaces, material hoppers, rail cars and masonry all can come in contact with corrosive or abrasive materials or harsh conditions.
The geotechnical needs of DOTs and other agencies responsible for roads and bridges are vast. Issues include: Culvert repair Soil stabilization Void filling Concrete slab lifting Sinkhole remediation Slope control Slough control in tunneling
PROBLEM: Dixie Electric Company, the third oldest electrical contractor in Atlanta, required industrial floor repairs in its newly constructed warehouse, including shrinkage cracks and cut aways.
This cut-away area of concrete was repaired using Floor Fix
SOLUTION: The local concrete contractor that was hired to repair the floors used several products from Prime Resins’ Floor Repair line of chemical grouts and epoxies.
Floor Fix, a low viscosity, fast-curing urethane resin, was used to patch areas where the concrete had been cut away.
All of the joints were sealed using a Joint Shield 5000 series product, and Floor Fix was used to repair a few shrinkage cracks in the concrete.
The shop area was coated with water-based Primer Sealer, followed by a Prime Coat 4000 series general-purpose epoxy coating. This coating protects the floor and facilitates ease of clean-up of spills and debris.
BENEFIT: A floor treated with Floor Fix is traffic-ready in 10 minutes.
