Resin Flooring at Work
Thursday 27th September 2018
Prokem has recently been busy installing resin flooring at two sites in the UK, using ProCrete SL, ProCote CR and Decavane H Vinylester Screed.
Just outside Sheffield in the UK, this Chemical Plant needed repairs to the tanker unloading bay. The whole floor had to be uplifted due to damage from Sulphuric Acid, HCL and various other chemicals.
Once the floor had been uplifted, we used diamond grinding to get a clean surface and then laid our ProCrete CR- SL at 5mm thick followed by a top coat of ProCote CR in Red which also made the resin flooring anti-slip. You can see the ProCote CR surface finish in the image above.
The whole process from surface preparation to application took around 4 days to complete.
In Newcastle, this tanker unloading bay in the image below required treatment to protect it from Acetic Acid. Acetic Acid is a colourless, so-called weak acid often found in vinegar. It is classified as a weak acid since it only partially dissociates in solution, but concentrated acetic acid is corrosive and can attack the skin and flooring surfaces. We used Decavane H Vinylester screed here to provide an acid-resistant surface in the tanker bay.
