High-performance flooring products

A high-performance industrial flooring materials range from leading manufacturer, Sika, was specified for an extensive flooring refurbishment at Eskom/Rotek’s strategic workshops in Rosherville, Germiston South, Gauteng.

Specification highlights included:

• The flooring preparation commenced with crack repairs using Sikadur-52 ZA, a two-part, solventfree, low-viscosity injection liquid based on high strength epoxy resins.

• Extensive joint sealing of the floors was achieved using Sikaflex-11 FC+, a one-part, moisture-curing, elastic-joint sealant and multi-purpose adhesive, based on polyurethane.

• For remedial work, Sika’s high-performance Sikagrout-212 was used. This ready-to-mix powder with adjustable consistency provides excellent flow characteristics, rapid strength development, and high final strengths. Floors were primed using Sikafloor-161, a two-part, low-viscosity epoxy resin primer that provides good penetration and excellent bond strength.

• Extensive floor areas were coated with Sika’s internationally-approved high-strength, resin-rich Sikafloor-20 N PurCem (light grey, 9mm thick). With a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to that of concrete, Sikafloor-20 N PurCem performs and retains its physical characteristics through a wide range of temperatures. Its bond strength is in excess of the tensile strength of concrete and when subjected to impact, Sikafloor-20 N PurCem behaves plastically. The working area at Rotek covers thousands of square metres of floor space.
