Police floor gets new stripes

For the upgrade of a 1100m² floor at the Ekurhuleni Municipal Police Department in Isando, Donaspex specified Sika’s specialised flooring product, Sikafloor*-24N PurCem*. The existing floor’s epoxy coating was peeling off in areas, necessitating a total recoating.

Sikafloor-24N PurCem is a multi-component, coloured polyurethane modified, cement and aggregate thin layer screed with self-smoothing properties. It provides a smooth, easy-to-clean surface with medium slip resistance, and is typically installed at 3.0 to 4.0mm thick for non-regulated general industrial applications.

The application on this floor was at 3L/m² for a 3mm floor coating, and achieved the attractive, clean finish that the client had requested.

A multi-coloured task
Creating separate strips of different colours as a decorative finish was a time consuming challenge that required pin point accuracy, since the colour coatings could be applied simultaneously. The green was applied first and allowed to dry before the application of the red coating.

Still, the project was completed in just a month and the high-quality products produced the desired glossy finish and the change that was so desperately needed.
