Polyurea Joint Repair
Many industrial and commercial floors have a concrete foundation to polish and/or finish in several ways. The concrete should have expansion joints saw cut into the surface before moving into the facility. These saw cut expansion joints help guide potential cracks to the saw cuts as the slab is curing due to normal drying shrinkage.
After cutting the surface, fill the expansion joints to keep them free of dirt and unwanted debris. Our project managers recommend polyurea-based joint fillers specifically designed for indoor use on industrial, commercial, and retail polished concrete floors. We provide a polyurea solution for concrete floors needing crack or joint repair. We provide a more durable polyurea option for floors that will see heavy traffic, heavy loads, wheeled carts, and forklifts. The two types of polyurea joint filler we offer include:
- Semi-rigid filler can repair joint cracks in newly-poured slabs or to repair cuts in older floors. These are also an excellent solution for businesses requiring freezers and coolers because they can cure at temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Structural fillers can restore damaged concrete surfaces. For surfaces that have holes, broken edges, or severe cracks, this is a great solution. If your concrete floor is pitted and gouged, structural polyurea can also add a new layer of material over the damaged concrete. Once the new layer has dried, the surface can be polished, delivering a brand new floor.
Commercial and industrial concrete flooring takes a beating during its life from heavy traffic, thermal cycling, and shrinkage. From distribution centers and grocery stores to big box home centers, polyurea is a great choice for filling, sealing, and repairing concrete floors.
