Akzo Nobel required a cost effective approach to sealing and upgrading their bunded storage area at their Stowmarket site.

The concrete was soiled and old line markings had faded. The new industrial floor coating would have to be suitable for frequent daily forklift traffic and the storage of drums and IBCs. The proposed coating would also have to offer chemical resistance.

The refurbishment of the floor had to be completed in four phases to minimise disruption to operations. The concrete was prepared using vacuum contained diamond grinding.

Repairs were made using our solvent free Epoxy resin mortar. Our Britdura 750 solvent free High-build Epoxy Floor coating was installed in the colour Charcoal. Pallet bays were highlighted with lines and numerals. Areas of specific use were installed in a contrasting colour.
