When one of the worlds most advanced manufacturing corporations needed their concrete floors fully resurfaced, they knew whom to call: Floorcare USA Inc.
This high-end manufacturing company located in New Berlin, Wisconsin also faced a very challenging situation as they had contaminated concrete.
The clients concrete had a form of contamination called: ASR – Alkalinity Silicate Reactivity.
This is a phenomenon in concrete when there is very high moisture content in slab on grade construction combined with contaminated aggregates used in the original construction of the concrete slab.
The client was faced with an extremely expensive problem of having to FULLY REMOVE THEIR EXISTING SLAB, then repour new concrete and wait for it to cure; then coat the new concrete leading to downtown of 60-90 days; costing them a fortune in missed manufacturing time.
Floorcare USA had a better solution: Concrete Cap Resurfacing.
Floorcare USA performed all the requisite testing of the slab and once that data was gathered, a plan was put into place.
Floorcare USA milled off the top ¼” of the concrete cap, then applied an extremely high moisture tolerant primer system and from their installed a specially formulated aggregate reinforced troweled down ¼” concrete resurfacing topping system.
Once the cap was replaced, Floorcare proceeded to install High Wear Urethane to the traffic aisles and loading docks and SDS – Static Dissipative System to the work cells to protect the sensitive components during the manufacturing the process.
The floors look great, perform well and saved this manufacturing client a bundle of time and money!
