Extreme Transformation – Green Industrial Floor Coatings

Cracked, leaky, discolored and downright dangerous … That’s what Dave Backlund, owner of Industrial Coatings, Inc., found when invited to survey the 2nd floor shower room floor at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SShower Room Before. Dakota.  The ancient tile-over-concrete floor earned a failing grade.

Shower Room Floor BeforeThe extreme challenge?  How to completely remove the mosaic surface, perform the extensive concrete crack repair and patching, install a waterproofing membrane followed by decorative, skid-resistant cement floor paint, curbs and coving in the short break between Spring and Summer Semesters?! Oh, and of course, stay within budget!

If this sounds like a job for a seasoned Professional Floor Coating Installer, you’re right.  And Dave was up to the task. Prep and patching of the concrete flooring would take 3 entire days.  So, to meet his deadline and budget, Dave chose from the solvent-free, ultra quick-curing FloroCryl MMA (methyl methacrylate) line of products: FloroCryl M waterproofing membrane, FloroCryl tinted basecoat with a full broadcast of decorative colored chips, and Florocryl Clear finish coat.Shower Room After

The results (and photos) speak for themselves:  Beautiful, functional, safety-enhanced industrial flooring installed on time and within budget.  Just look at the skill required on those tricky curbs and coving!  We give this job an A+.Shower Room Floor After
