PROBLEM: The floor coating was peeling off the manufacturing facility floor of a plastics manufacturer, creating the potential for a workplace accident. The 50,000 square foot facility had moderate to mild foot and vehicle traffic and needed a coating that was durable enough to withstand these conditions. Due to cost and time constraints, the company decided to re-coat the floors using in-house maintenance personnel. A Rust-Oleum representative and flooring specialists trained the company's maintenance crew on the surface preparation and application process
SOLUTION: After shot blasting the surface to remove the existing coating, the crew applied Rust-Oleum's Concrete Protection System's Penetrating Prime & Seal Primer as the first coat on the floor. Penetrating Prime & Seal Primer fills holes and reduces the risk of bubbling within the topcoat. The second coat was the 8000 System OverKrete® with and orange peel finish which can handle severe foot and mechanical traffic as well as some chemical abuse. The project looked incredible when completed and the company saved a significant amount of money by using their own in-house crew and coatings that could be easily applied. The Penetrating Prime & Seal Primer along with the 8000 System OverKrete® OP established a lasting future for the warehouse floor and brought a polished, fresh look to the manufacturing facility.
