When a Waukesha, Wisconsin heavy duty manufacturing company was looking to expand their operations into an abandoned building adjacent to their existing facility they were faced with some very challenging floors.
The concrete slabs in this facility were so beat up and damaged that the Waukesha, Wisconsin manufacturing client would not be able to properly preform their manufacturing process and they were faced with the very costly and time consuming process of ripping up the concrete and pouring all new concrete slabs.
They called in Floorcare USA, Inc., to see if an alternative would be available.
Floorcare evaluated the facility and their manufacturing process and determined that there was a better way to address their beat up concrete floors: Tennant Coatings PT-250 concrete cap resurfacing system.
Not only is Tennant Coatings PT-250 a more efficient method to address beat up concrete floors in a heavy duty manufacturing environment, its also a more durable option as Tennant PT-250 concrete cap resurfacing system is 2-3 times STRONGER than concrete.
First the various slabs of concrete were mechanically steel shotblasted or mechanically milled based on the slab condition and then the PT-250 concrete cap resurfacing system was applied at an average thickness of ¼” thick.
This nominal, 1/4-inch, 100 percent solids, power-troweled system consists of Eco-MPE™ primer; Eco-PT™ 250 resurfacer; and Eco-PT™ Topcoat, which is required to seal the surface. It’s recommended for large area restoration of eroded concrete, such as main traffic aisles and loading docks.
Tennant Coatings PT-250 Concrete Cap Resurfacing system has the following performance characteristics:
Once the PT-250 Concrete Cap resurfacing system was applied, Floorcare USA then top coated the entire facility with Tennant Coatings Wear Guard HTS – High Traffic System as the wear coat. Tennant HTS coatings are moisture-cure urethanes with superior abrasion resistance thatcomply with VOC and VOSregulations. They combinealuminum oxide, ceramics and and abrasion-resistant polymer for50% greater mil-per-mil wear than standard urethanes. They are designed for loading docks, main traffic aisles and areas subject to punishing steel wheel traffic.

Once the top coat application of Tennant Coatings Wear Guard HTS – High Traffic System fully cured, Floorcare USA, Inc., then set out the pattern for the decorative and safety line striping to make this Waukesha, Wisconsion manufacturing plants floors really stand out.
