Floor Preparation

Proper surface preparation is an extremely important factor in the immediate and long-term successful performance of any 2-pack applied flooring systems. We also offer a full range of concrete floor preparation services, and below is a description of all the services we have on offer:

Shot Blasting

 

Shot Blasting is the industry-recognised method of preparing concrete floors. It’s a one-step surface preparation technique that removes, cleans and profiles the surface in a single application. It can effectively remove laitance, paint, old coatings, dirt and other contaminants that are in or on concrete. This process will prepare new concrete or steel for coating applications and will enhance and improve the bond for any type of coating system. Shot Blasting is a dust-free method of surface abrasion in which thousands of steel shot particles are propelled at the surface removing the top layer and contaminants and bounce back into the system to be recycled. The steel shot profiles the surface, while contaminants are removed by the dust collection recovery system.

Diamond Grinding

   
Diamond Grinders use horizontally rotating discs to level, smooth or clean the top surface of a concrete slab. Diamond grinding produces a smooth finish as opposed to a textured finish.

Scabbling & Scarifying

   
Scabbling and Scarifying tend to roughen the concrete surface more than Grinding or Shot Blasting.

Chisel Scraping

   
Chisel Scrapers use a rapid hammering action and can be used for rapid removal of tiles, wood, parquetry and glues.

Acid Etching

   
Acid etching is the process of applying an acid solution to a concrete surface, allowing the acid to react with and 'etch' the concrete. It is mainly used for light duty applications as the weakly bonded laitance layer is not totally removed.
