Food Manufacturing Facility - Skelmersdale

This project was carried out on the top floor of a supported steel mezzanine floor at a Snack Foods Factory located in Skelmersdale.

IRL were initially approached by the customer as the original floor was covered with vinyl, which, over the years had become tired looking and in areas had de-bonded from the substrate due to wet wash down areas.

The client was looking for a flexible yet durable anti-slip floor system finish that would adhere well to the Steel deck.

The solution was to mechanically strip the old vinyl floor and coving, the remains of the underlying adhesive were removed via vacuum assisted shot-blasting and triple headed diamond grinding to provide a suitable key for the new floor system.

The next step was to prime and reinstate the coving using Remmers Cove Grade Epoxy. The floor was then primed with Remmers Epoxy FAS 100 primer and left to cure overnight. The following day Remmers PUR Indu Color D60 Flow System was installed, this was hand laid at a nominal 3-4mm thickness. Once cured, a first coat of Remmers PUR Indu Color Flow D60 was roller applied then lightly broadcast with quartz aggregate to provide an anti-slip finish. A final coat of Remmers PUR Indu Color Flow was then applied as a finishing seal coat to the floor and cove detail.
