Apollo Construction Solutions Launches Drive Restore (A1398)

Apollo Construction Solutions (APCS) is excited to launch Drive Restore (A1398), a unique and cost effective solution for rejuvenating resin bound surfaces.

As the UK’s largest privately-owned liquid adhesive, sealant, primer and resin manufacturer, we have worked with decorative surfacing companies for over twenty years and developed a strong reputation for supplying high performance polyurethane resins.

From our time in the industry, we understand the real issue facing our customers is addressing dull and matted drives and other large decorative surfaces. In the past, restoring resin surfaces was a lengthy and costly process. This was until we developed Drive Restore (A1398); it is a hardwearing UV-resistant polyurethane sealer that:

• Restores tired resin bound surfaces to their natural beauty.

• Minimises projects costs through spray application.

• Assists with anti-slip and may help with remedial work*.

With a patent pending, Drive Restore (A1398) is easily spray-applied via a pressurised canister system and provides a tough layer to restore and extend the life of the surface, whilst maintaining SUDs compliance.

Drive Restore (A1398) enables our customers, home owners, local authorities and facilities managers to enjoy the fresh and glossy appearance of their decorative surfaces for longer*.

In addition, Drive Restore (A1398) ensures economical even coverage, unlike a roller-coat product. It can re-life UV and non- UV surfaces, including driveways, paths and other large decorative areas. Drive Restore is sold throughout our carefully selected partners throughout the UK.

For further product information, including data sheet, Aspen and Floor Slip Resistance reports, please visit www.apolloconstructionsolutions.co.uk or contact us at 01827 542 81.

*Drive Restore (A1398) should only be used for such projects with Apollo Construction Solutions’ approval or our partners’ approval.

* QUV Testing indicates that Drive Restore (A1398) can last up to 2 years.

Husqvarna revs up to develop the global floor grinding industry

The future looks bright for concrete floor grinding. With the global development of the industry still in its early years, Husqvarna has acquired two other leading players in the field – HTC Floor Grinding Solutions and Pullman Ermator. By combining the strengths and expertise of the three brands, it aims to expand the floor grinding market worldwide.

Floor grinding equipment and tools can be used for many applications: from levelling and preparing a concrete floor before adding a new surface layer, to polishing concrete into a beautifully shining floor with a premium look.

What’s more, polished concrete floors are durable and easyto clean and maintain, making them ideal for industrial and commercial sites. This is the message that Husqvarna wants to convey to forward-thinking architects, property owners, builders and flooring contractors all over the world.

Henric Andersson, President of Husqvarna Construction Products, explains: “The combination of HTC and Husqvarna will create a strong platform to educate floor owners and architects about the benefits of polished concrete floors. By combining our efforts, we can position floor grinding as the preferred method for surface preparation as well as making polished floors an even more popular flooring solution”.

More clients entering the market will lead to a growth in demand. Furthermore, flooring contractors can expect accelerated development of equipment and tools, as well as increased access to support from the business and application experts within Husqvarna.

“We aim to develop the market, improving productivity and costs for both contractors and floor owners. This gives us a stronger position to help our customers achieve beautiful and easily-maintained floors – and lower their environmental impact” says Henric Andersson.

“With Husqvarna, HTC and Pullman Ermator working side by side we will be able to develop even better solutions for our customers. By integrating Pullman Ermator’s market-leading dust and slurry management solutions into the concept, we will become an even stronger actor with the capability to innovate more effective solutions – increasing our customers’ productivity, and reinforcing our market-leading position.”
