INDUSTRIAL FLOOR SURFACE

POLYURETHANE FLOORING

We must remember that no other surface in a building takes more abuse than floors, regardless of the type of building, be it industrial or commercial. While a bare concrete floor can withstand tremendous weight and pressure, it is relatively porous and susceptibility to significant damage when left untreated or uncoated. If exposed to regular foot traffic or the demands of a commercial environment, concrete will readily absorb dirt, chemicals, oils and other spillages. This often results in stains, cracks and abrasions that can make the floor impossible to clean and unattractive in appearance. Hence all concrete floors need some sort of protection regardless of where they are located. Over the last few years, the protection of concrete floors has gone from essentially nothing to a fairly sophisticated process of some type of protective coating or surfacing. The main purpose is to provide protection to the slab from deterioration or contamination or to provide some added benefits such as aesthetics, wear, non skid, chemical resistance, ease of maintenance and different other properties. How to choose the protective material for concrete floor in different conditions?

Whether you are constructing a new concrete floor or revamping an old one, there are different coatings you can choose to finish the project. We are focusing on coatings that are bonded directly to the surface and offer long term protection and may or may not have some aesthetic value.

Typical coatings that are mostly used for concrete floors include polyurethane & epoxy.
Polyurethane (PU) flooring has some added advantages over epoxy flooring which are as follows.

a) Flexible in nature
b) UV resistant
c) Seamless
d) Slip resistant
e) Abrasion resistant
f) Scratch resistant
g) Higher temperature resistant

Recommended Uses
FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO is suitable for use in Industrial ware houses, factories, & suitable for use in schools and hospitals, commercial buildings, up grading and refurbishing of existing internal concrete slabs. It can also be suitable for use in car parking and light to medium engineering operations.

Application Instructions
The preparation of the concrete is of vital importance for the effective use of this product. Concrete must be firm, hard and free from old coatings, concrete laitance and any contaminants which may impair adhesion. The concrete must have a profiled textured surface, which can be achieved by captive shot blasting, grinding or milling. For areas, which are contaminated by oil and grease, HCA (Hot compressed air) treatment may be
required. All dust and debris must be vacuumed away to leave a clean and dust free surface.

Priming
Priming is required and undertaken with FAIRCRETE SB(L) – an acrylic primer. Apply two coats of primer by roller, brush or spray. Apply the primer to the prepared surface and allow drying. (Normally overnight). For the second coat, dilute one part FAIRCRETE SB(L) to three parts water and apply to the previous coat. Allow to become touch dry before application of FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO.

Mixing
FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO is mixed applied by specialist mixer /pump. Measure 3.6 liters cool, potable water, into a suitable sized mixing vessel and mix full bag of FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO. Mix the composition for 3 to 5 mins. until a homogenous mix is observed. Mixing shall be carried out with a slow speed drill (400-500 RPM) fitted to a paddle attachment.

Application
Pour the material, immediately after completion of mixing, on the dry, primed surface, spread with a trowel and allow to ‘self level’. The required thickness of 2-3mm must be achieved in one application, for better durability a sealer coat of SAFECORE PUD should be applied which increases abrasion. For best results, the pouring and leveling should be a continuous process. If complete flooring is to be done, material pouring shall be started from dead end. (From the farthest end of entry / exit location).

Note: If the mix stiffens, it should be discarded. Do not attempt to re-mix with water.

Curing
In normal conditions, FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO does not require curing, but in harsh climatic conditions of direct sunlight, drying winds etc., freshly hardened surfaces should be covered completely with a polythene sheet for 2 days.

Packing and Coverage
FAIRTOP FAST FLOOR MICRO is available in 18 kg HDPE bag. Coverage will be 1.8 kg/m² at 1mm thickness.
