The existing concrete slab was prepared by a suitable combination of dust free vacuum shot blasting having its own lorry mounted independent 3 phase power supply, diamond grinding and STR light mechanical abrading containing all dust and debris in sealed containers. Followed by the application of two coats of FeRFA type 3 solvent free high build epoxy resin with a Life Expectancy of 2-4 years and two coats of line marking resin to pit surrounds. Sikafloor 264 was the system chosen.
