An integrated floor treatment specification from Tremco illbruck has been chosen to create a new workshop for a motor racing team.
Thorney Motors, run by John Thorne, prepares BMW and Vauxhall touring cars for the British Touring Car Championship, the CSL Cup and Dunlop SportMaxx series.
They wanted to convert a former agricultural building to provide premises suitable for its exacting work.
Tremco illbruck’s technical sales manager for the region, Tony Lees examined the existing concrete slab.
He then recommended the use of Tremco ES300 Surface DPM, together with compatible floor levelling compounds and surface finishes.
He also put the client in touch with recommended contractor, Surface Systems Coatings, which is based in Swindon.
Managing Director of Surface Systems Coatings, Simon Dyminski, said: “In the case of the contract for Thorney Motors’ new workshops we were initially called in by Tremco following an enquiry the manufacturer had received.
“Basically the client wanted to put new smooth, hard wearing and decorative floor on an existing concrete slab and the Tremco products are ideal to provide them with a heavy duty seamless resin floor, which would be easy to clean and maintain for their working environment.
“We began by bringing in dust controlled diamond grinding equipment to take off any contamination and to suitably prepare the surface.
“Then over the remains of a three day period we applied two coats of Tremco ES300 to suppress the moisture, levelled the uneven floor a using Tremco CS375 Industrial Wearing Screed, followed by Tremco CS350 Self-Smoothing Epoxy Screed in a light grey to complete the floor finish.”
Tremco illbruck’s MMA Rapid Cure Flexible System has been used in the resurfacing of a landmark car park at the Quayside Tower office on Broad Street in Birmingham.
Very fast curing methacrylate decking coating systems from Tremco illbruck meet the rigorous demands of heavy trafficked multi storey car parks and extreme weather conditions. Tremco Rapid Cure MMA systems waterproof the structure and provide an anti-slip surface. The top coat can be specified in a full range of colours to denote parking bays, walkways and drive aisles. Tremco illbruck offer specification assistance and extended warranty periods.
Tremco illbruck’s ES600 moisure vapour suppressant has recently attained BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) accreditation as well as EC1 compliance. Water-based ES600 has a low VOC content and is used for tackling residual moisture in new constructions. It is a single component moisture vapour suppressant which can be applied within one hour, allowing some floorcoverings to be applied the same day.
Tremco SF108 (formerly known as Treadfast 108) is a pressure sensitive adhesive for vinyl floor and wall coverings as well as most rubber floor coverings that has been awarded BREEAM compliant recognition for its sustainability. SF108 is also solvent- free, non-flammable, offers low toxicity and meets current legislation for low VOC requirements. The BREEAM recognition makes it the right specification, especially for schools, hospitals and other sensitive projects.
Tremco illbruck compares the ideal cricket test pitch to that of a contract flooring installation – both need to be very flat, offer a safe footing and be able to withstand heavy wear. Tremco illbuck’s range of tackifiers offer ease of application and compatibility across the range. All adhesives are trialled to ensure they work in partnership with compatible underlayments, moisture vapour suppressants and damp proof membranes.
