Preparation and installation of 10,000 square feet of CFS System S-250 USDA approved 1/4 inch floor coating at Pacific Foods

  
Concrete joints, edges, seams, drains are keyed out                  Drain is keyed out for thick coating in this critical traffic area

   
Prepared floor at trench drain before coating is applied                                     Coating applied flush with drain

   
Before and after Shot Blasting to rock profile for mechanical and chemical bond

   
Shot blasting is nearly dust free for applications such as wineries etc

   
Resin being applied and squeegied before sand is broadcast

   
Sand is applied on the first 3 coats to build floor to minimum 1/4 inch thickness

   
Sand is swept 30 minutes after each coat, then additional coats are applied         Finished floor

   
Heavy non skid is applied to top coat for high traffic with wet conditions

   
Finished floor shows texture for this heavy traffic food processing application

Complete installation process of floor at F & A Dairy in Las Cruces New Mexico

   
The joints are keyed out with jack hammers and the concrete is scabbled down to aggregate

   
The aggregate is necessary for a good mechanical bond        The concrete is acid and pressure washed clean

   
The joints and drains are left wide for extra thick floor material in these critical traffic areas

   
When liquid resin is spread over the aggregate a permanent bond is aquired

   
The resin is filled with sand which builds thickness and increased wear capabilities

   
The sand is swept up and the second  coat is spread over the top within 30 minutes which minimizes plant down time

   
This is the 3rd coat which is also filled with sand for heavy wear capabilities

   
The 4th and final coat resin can be pulled tight so that the existing grit from the previous coat will be used or extra
grit can be thrown on top for high water / slick areas for long term non skid
