Insufficient adhesion and a lack of impact resistance, which was causing partial delamination – these were only some of the reasons why the floor coating of the technical center needed a refurbishment. The Elastomers team was looking for a solution that could bring the center back to service within a very short time.
Floor refurbishment on the fast track
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. Furthermore, high aesthetics combined with easy-to-clean properties of the floor were crucial for an area frequented by external visitors.
Every downtime day at the technical center delays important production batches for application tests or customers trials of the Elastomers team. A conventional three-coat system requires a standard of five days curing downtime.
The Pasquick™ technology is perfectly suited to meet the requirements of minimal construction site downtime without any concession to performance or handling. With Pasquick™-based Kryptanate 100 it was possible to reinstall the machines already on the third day. After the application of the 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 ensures the necessary durability and easy-to-clean properties of the floor.
By using the high-performance Krypton Chemical coating system based on Pasquick™ technology, the technical center management has minimized the downtime as much as possible and ensured that the refurbished floor will maintain its appealing look for many years to come.
