High performance resin floor system for demanding manufacturing facility
A new £5m extension was completed in 2014 to increase capacity of the existing pouch and aluminium tray manufacturing plant at the company’s original manufacturing base in Ireland.
Problems and Requirements
The installed floor used Remmers Crete SL in combination with Remmers PUR Color Top 2KM seal coat to provide a colour stable finish. A subsequent seal coat of Remmers PUR Aqua Top 2 KM SG, with the inclusion of a polymer bead, provided an R11 level of slip resistance with a silk gloss floor finish.
The system was installed by a specialist flooring contractor who worked closely with the main contractor to allow the installation of the floor whilst other fitting-out activities were also in progress, optimising the overall program.
This carefully designed system is ideally suited to areas subjected to medium to heavy-duty traffic for industrial floors within food processing facilities.
Remmers Crete SL is a water dispersed polyurethane resin system which is applied as a self-levelling, 2-3mm thick system. The seal coats provided colour stability, slip resistance and a silk gloss finish to the applied floor. The installed system provides excellent durability, abrasion resistance, impact and chemical attack.
