This project contained both internal and external areas. The external area had
loose brickwork toward the bottom of the wall, so our team removed the loose
bricks and infilled using an epoxy mortar to give strength to the wall. Following this
we mechanically grinded the whole floor and then applied a damp proof
membrane. The next steps were to install the coving and a 6mm polyurethane
screed to the floor to give the required resistance to thermal and chemical shock,
along with a lightly textured finish.

prepared the floor and
installed chase cuts to
act as anchor grooves
upon chemical cure of
the 6mm polyurethane
screes to provide extra
grip and strength.
The below photo illustrates the condition of the areas we had to deal with, heavily
soaked in chemicals and oil. Once we mechanically grinded the area we applied two
coats of damp proof membrane, the second coat had kiln-dried silica sand
incorporated to provide a mechanical key for our main system. Again our team saw
cut 20mm x 20mm chase cuts around all perimeter edges and stantions to act as
anchor grooves because when a polyurethane screed cures it shrinks, allowing the
system to grip into the grooves to give added strength.

The 6mm polyurethane screed is exactly what this client needs to protect the concrete
floor, and to also provide a safe working environment. As pictured above our team
also applied a three-pack polyurethane coving system to all cove areas to give a
consistent finish throughout the areas.

This project went smoothly without any issues or delays, achieving exactly what the client
had asked for. A great job by all involved!
