The Concrete Makeover

As with many factories the floor was in bad shape. To save the floor it needed to be and leveled then protected with an epoxy coating that could withstand the harsh abuses of every day factory operations.

A protective epoxy coating that was impact and wear resistant was installed. The floor was also made safer for the employees through the use of an anti-skid additive.

Razac, Inc. is a hair care products company based in Newark, NJ. They needed to upgrade their manufacturing facility’s floor as it was in bad shape from years of use in the factory setting.

To level, strengthen and bury imperfections in the concrete floor the contractor first applied Duraamen’s Paramol which is a primer for self-leveling underlayments. It helps the underlayment adhere to the old worn concrete floor.

Next Param 4500 self-leveling concrete underlayment was applied. Our self-leveling underlayment is easy to install, has around 25 minutes working time and can be walked on in 3-4 hours helping to complete the job with minimal down-time.

With the substrate smooth and level it was time for the application of the epoxy coating. First an epoxy primer was applied (Perdure E02). Then the Perdure E10, combined with Self-leveling Additive (SLA), was applied. Unlike other epoxy coatings on the market, our Perdure E10 Self-leveling Epoxy Coating can be applied up to 1/16” thick. This helps with impact resistance, especially necessary in a factory setting.

Finally the entire floor was sealed with Perdure P72 combined with an Anti-skid Additive. P72 is a polyaspartic polurea coating that penetrates deep into the epoxy to provide superior adhesion so it will never lift or peel. It provides the ultimate protection from UV rays, abrasions, impacts, and wear. Our Anti-Skid additive (ASA) provides a textured surface so factory employees are safer from slips and falls.
