Pasquick® speeds up technical center floor refurbishment

Copied to clipboard

After the Covestro Elastomers Technical Center was extended around two years ago, the total area of 270 square meters consisted of both old and new concrete flooring. As the existing floor coating suffered from insufficient adhesion and a lack of impact resistance, which was causing partial delamination, a refurbishment was needed.

Task

Ensure a quick and efficient refurbishment

Covestro Elastomers needed to refurbish the floor of its Technical Center with a quick and efficient new coating to bring it back into service in a very short time.
Challenge

Combine fast return to service with great aesthetics and easy cleaning

“The main requirements for this refurbishment project were fast return to service due to short lead-time production and full utilization of the Technical Center. But furthermore, high aesthetics combined with easy-to-clean properties of the floor square are crucial for an area with external visitors,” emphasized Olivier Vasseur, the then plant manager at Covestro Technical Center.

The Pasquick® technology is perfectly suited to meeting the requirements of minimal construction site downtime without any concession to performance or handling.

Solution

Durable, efficient, attractive coating with Pasquick®

A conventional three-coat system requires five days downtime in view of the normal curing time. With Pasquick®-based Kryptanate 100 from Krypton Chemical it was possible to reinstall the machines on the third day. “The Pasquick® technology is perfectly suited to meeting the requirements of minimal construction site downtime without any concession to performance or handling,” said Alain Brosset, general manager of Europe Resine, the contractor. After application of the Pasquick®-based gray-pigmented Kryptanate 100 basecoat, the square was sprinkled with flakes in black, gray and white to provide an appealing natural stone look. The subsequent Pasquick®-based Kryptanate 100 clear topcoat layer gives the floor the required durability and easy-to-clean properties.
