Movement on leveled floor Leveled floor without surface imperfections or undulations Wheel Load causing surface abrasion 2-3 mm thickness
Flooring System Typical Industrial concrete flooring Wheel Load causing surface abrasion This type of movement erodes the surface much faster Exaggerated view of undulation
Floor Protection General requirements of a floor protection system. Fairly levelled surface. Should be capable of withstanding expected traffic conditions. Should be typically resistant to oil,grease & water penetration. Should be easily cleanable. Should be aesthetic in appearance.
Should not peel-off, de-bond or break under existing traffic conditions Should be smooth, easily cleanable and aesthetic in appearance, but not slippery Should be resistant to penetration of oil, grease & water Typical requirements vis-à-vis Flooring characteristics Flooring should be done with a minimum down-time Excellent bond-strength with base floor High compressive and flexural strength High abrasion resistance Fairly smooth with anti-skid properties Aesthetic and available in various shades as per customer’s requirements Dust not catch up dust, easily cleanable and does not react with normal detergents Should be joint-less & monolithic Should be impermeable and resistant to materials-in-contact Capable of bonding with a minimum surface preparation without the need to replace the base floor. The under-layment should be of self-leveling type, so as to be laid quickly. Floor Protection
