Concrete profiling for overlay bonding
The most important characteristic for applying a coating or over-lay bonding is the texture or “profile” of the concrete.
For concrete polymer modified overlays the concrete surface may be roughened by mechanical profiling or acid etching. Large or difficult surfaces will usually be mechanically profiled.
For floor coatings in industrial or commercial applications
Mechanical profiling is the method of choice.
Whilst acid etching can provide adequate surface preparation for horizontal installations of coatings and toppings in areas that are well ventilated and require a spark and dust free environment, acid etching will not remove petroleum-based products or animal vegetable oils from the concrete. In these situations mechanical profiling is the more suitable solution.
SRS Concrete Profiling – non-slip surfaces
SRS does profile concrete to expose aggregate and to create non slip environments. Suitable for Building and Construction industry requirements.
