Installation Programme: The installation was completed in four days.

Background

Following the success of a series of installations completed in 2006 and 2012, Hyundai requested the Port of Tilbury to employ Elgood Industrial Flooring for this project.

Facts & Figures

  • Completion date: December 2014
  • Location: Tilbury, Essex
  • Size of floor: 126 sq m.
  • Colour: Dusty Grey Ral 7037
  • Existing floors: Heavily tamped open textured concrete with layers of solvent based paint.
  • Preparation

    Dust free shot-blasting was used to remove the existing paint and to clean and provide a good physical key on the concrete.

    Diamond grinding was used to alleviate the worst of the profile across the concrete.

    Special Requirements

    Hyundai required a cost effective hard wearing floor coating that would lift the presentation of the Import Centre.

    To match Hyundai Workshops around the UK the floor had to be RAL 7037 Dusty Grey, which Elgood were able to manufacture for this individual contract.

    Port of Tilbury Selected

    Elgood Industrial Flooring’s Britdura 2000 Solvent Free Epoxy Flow Coat (nominal thickness of 2mm).
