Pharmaceutical Warehouse Floor – 2 years later and still going strong

March 14, 2019

In the world of coatings, its not always good enough to worry about the here and now. Many products can look great after you apply them. The real test is how they stand up after months and years of hard use. Factory and warehouse floors often take some of the hardest wear and tear in the industry. From forklifts to jib cranes, the machinery moves thousands of pounds daily and the coatings used on the floor needs to be durable and strong to withstand the pressure.

Pumpcoat ~ PCI Contractors has a customer in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Their large warehouse floors required a tough concrete hardener and sealer. Approximately 7000 square feet needed to be prepped, ground and coated. Pumpcoat used diamond grinders to prep the floor for coating. Using Consolideck Concrete Sealing System, a first coat of sealer/hardener & densifier was applied. This product penetrates the concrete pores and hydrates them, thereby creating a dust-proof prime coat that does not contain high amounts of potassium or sodium salts. The Top coat was done with PolishGuard protective sealer. It is highly durable, and creates a high-gloss protective finish that is stain and chemically resistant. This is optimal for these type of floors in case of accidental spills from moving products around.

Pumpcoat worked with the customer to do the coating in two mobilizations so that their warehouse equipment could be moved around and downtime would be minimal rather than taking the whole floor offline for the duration of the work. Pumpcoat’s expertise in application, along with this superior coating system allowed for a beautifully finished floor that was robust in durability and strength. Even after two years from coating, this warehouse floor is still in great condition despite being heavily used on a daily basis for equipment ranging from 5,000 to 40,000 pounds. If you are experiencing issues with your flooring substrate or coating failing, call Pumpcoat ~ PCI Contractors today so we can help solve your problems.
