Prep Done Right for Grand Rapids Industrial Flooring Projects
Prep is the most important part of long term success on a Grand Rapids industrial flooring project. With this in mind, Xtreme goes above and beyond with our concrete prep process.
Hand grinding –
Edges, doorways, & drains are ground by hand
Cracks & joints prepped –
Saw cuts, joints, and cracks are prepped with crack chaser saws hooked to high performance vacuums. Furthermore, our durable V-8 patching products are used to rebuild any damaged joints and treat cracks.
Joints are filled with our flexible polyurea joint filler.
Grind joints flush –
Due to shrinking during the curing process, joints will often curl upwards. If not addressed, curled joints will be visible through a smooth seamless floor coating. Furthermore, raised joints receive a much higher rate of abuse and damage from forklift and wheeled traffic. For this reason, Xtreme diamond grinds the joints flush with the rest of the floor on all Grand Rapids industrial flooring projects.
Diamond Grinding –
The entire floor is diamond ground to remove the weak top layer of concrete. In addition, diamond grinding removes any sealers, contaminants, coatings, and glue. Moreover, grinding helps to flatten the floor and remove irregularities in the concrete.
Prepping damaged & uneven areas –
Contrary to popular belief, even new concrete in good condition will have areas that need to be patched for the best looking finished floor. For example, stones in the concrete can pop out during the grinding process and leave a void. Prior to patching, Xtreme uses chipping hammers to prep these areas that a concrete floor grinder won’t reach.
After grinding, Xtreme shotblasted the entire floor. There are many advantages to our use of shotblasters after grinding. First, shotblasting provides a higher CSP rating (Concrete Surface Profile rating) than grinding alone. As a result, the floor coating is able to penetrate further for a better bond. Second, shotblasting leaves a clean dust free floor that is ready for coating.
Patching is the last prep step before coating and creates a higher quality finished floor. With this in mind, Xtreme patches all of the cracks, damaged areas, irregular surfaces, and spalling.
