Floors treated with Perma Floor Top AL are resistant to oil and grease spillages and tend to be non slippery. Further these floors are resistant to spillages of acids and alkalis. These floors withstand constant spillages of water. Perma Floor Top AL treated floors are ideally suited for engineering workshops, warehouses, abattoirs, service stations etc.
Perma Floor Top AL product are designed for high abrasion and impact resistance properties to the concrete floors.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
After floor concreting when the concrete is firm to take the weight of workman sprinkle Perma Floor Top AL at the desired rate on the green concrete and trowel it in with metal floats or power trowel. Care should be taken to see that concrete surface is just ready to receive dry shake powder. If delayed too much it will become unworkable and if Perma Floor Top AL is sprinkled too early it will get mixed with the concrete and loose its utility. Sprinkling of Perma Floor Top AL should be controlled such that an uniform quantity of the product is sprinkled throughout. It may be suggested that broadcasting of Perma Floor Top AL be done in two stages. The second stage of broadcasting done in a perpendicular direction to the first stage broad cast.
Curing should be carried out immediately after final trowelling has been completed.
Perma Floor Top AL is available in Dark Grey, Red, Blue, Leafy Green, Olive Green, Green ,Terracotta and Terracotta Brown.
Floor being a very important utility member of any industrial or commercial unit sufficient care needs to be taken while designing and execution. The following precautions however need to be taken while concreting a floor.
The base concrete should be well designed incorporating atleast 350 kgs of cement per cubic meter of concrete and water cement ratio to be kept at a minimum to produce low slump concrete. Floor concrete needs to be well vibrated and power floated.
STRESS RELIFE JOINTS
While concreting in bay the size of the bay should be ideally 3m x 4m for 100mm thick concrete. Concreting bay sizes can be increased with thickness of concrete increasing.
Every 12 meters a crack inducer joint and every 36 meters an expansion joint needs to be introduced. If long bay pattern of concreting is used as in case while using vacuum dewatering machine relief joints should be cut every 10 meters using a concrete saw. This joint is normally 6 to 10 mm wide and about 40 mm deep. This relief joint should be cut after 24 hours of concreting but before 72 hours. In this method also expansion joint becomes necessary every 36 meters in either direction.
Perma Floor Top AL available in 25 kg & 50 kg sack.
Perma Floor Top AL has a shelf life of 12 Months from the date of manufacture, if stored in dry and cool conditions.
