Dorbyl Automotive Systems manufactures and distributes automotive components and is renowned for supplying car parts and accessories to BMW and VW. The Port Elizabeth-based automotive business needed to revamp their 2000m² factory floors to keep up with the momentum of their growing business.

The factory floor had deteriorated considerably over time and had to be completely removed and redone. PAB Contractor, Russell Morgan, specified Sika’s specialised flooring products to meet the client brief of new, durable and aesthetic floor finishes.

Sikafloor 161, an economic two part, low viscosity epoxy resin was used for priming the concrete substrate. The product’s excellent bond strength, easy application and low viscosity are a few of its advantages. For binding, Sikafloor-263, a two part economic, multipurpose binder based on epoxy resin was utilised. This self-smoothing and broadcast system for concrete and cement screeds with normal up to medium heavy wear such as storage and assembly halls, maintenance workshops, garages and loading ramps was perfect for the Dorbyl factory floor facelift. Some of the advantages of this multipurpose binder include easy application, a gloss finish, a liquid proof and slip resistant surface, among others.

Customers and workers will be dazzled by the improvement at the factory and the glossy, attractive finish of the floors.
