Well Defined Aisles
To avoid interfering with their manufacturing schedule, we determined that the project would be completed over several weekends to ensure they were able to meet all production deadlines.
The first weekend included all concrete repairs. We patched many eroded areas and filled the joints and cracks with a polyurea filler.
Throughout weekends two, three, and four, we mechanically prepped the aisles for coating adhesion and installed the grey epoxy with yellow lines.
Due to the environment, we added a non-skid surface because cutting oils can be very slippery. All doorways were marked with hashes to ensure nothing was placed in front of an exit.
This customer was pleased with all the work completed and was able to remain in production throughout the entire project.
After our visit, we determined their aisles were down to large aggregate, which made it impossible to clean. In a manufacturing environment, cutting oils are airborne, which causes the floor to be slick.
We started the project by scarifying the aisles. This is done to remove surface dirt and oils to prep the floor for resurfacing. We used an epoxy matrix to resurface the concrete.
This customer also wanted their aisles to be marked. We installed a 100% solids product in grey and added yellow line striping. Due to the environment, we added a heavy non-skid.
The project was completed in three days, and the customer now has a smooth aisle, which makes for easy housekeeping and a non-slip surface for their employee safety.
