Polymer Concrete & Overlays Chemical Resistant & Durable
Polymer concrete is like ordinary concrete except that is uses a resin as a binder instead of portland cement and water. The resin can be epoxy, novolac epoxy, furan, or vinylester. Polymer concretes are primarily used in very corrosive environments where normal concrete and protective coatings quickly deteriorate and degrade. Polymer concretes also have fast turnaround time and quickly achieve high physical strengths. Turnaround time is generally 6 hours from pour time to cured where forms can be stripped or it can be open to traffic. Compressive strengths are 8-10,000 psi in 4 to 6 hours and over 15,000 psi when fully cured.
Degraded and compromised floor slabs can be brought back to life by using a polymer concrete floor overlay. This can be epoxy or cementitious urethane.
A half inch thick or greater overlay material can be placed over the existing floor slab using screed box or rake, depending on the consistency of the material being used. The floor is finished either by hand or power troweling or by back rolling a self-leveling material to achieve a monolithic, flat, finished floor.
