Sikafloor® SYSTEM PROVIDES STRONG, SEAMLESS SURFACE SOLUTION FOR HYGIENE-CRITICAL PRODUCTION LAB
A laboratory floor at a large pharmaceutical plant has been refurbished with a seamless, impervious surface thanks to Sika.
A total of 500m² of flooring was supplied during the renovation at the Pharmaserve site in Runcorn. The company is involved in the development and manufacture of respiratory medicinees; an environment which demands the highest standards of hygiene and safety be upheld. To help achieve this, Sika’s smooth, robust and easy-to-clean Sikafloor® Glossy system was specified.
Contractor, Mike Thelwell from Thelwell Flooring Ltd, was selected to carry out the Pharmaserve floor refurbishment. Initial works involved the installation of Sikafloor® -155 WN, a solvent-free, water-dispersed primer based on epoxy resin. Sikafloor® -161 primer was then applied in preparation for Sikafloor® -210 PurChem® and Sikafloor® -260 PurCem®, multi-component, gloss and scratch-resistant, coloured polyurethane hybrid screeds. Sikafloor® -81 EpoCem® supplied the three-part, epoxy-modified, fine-textured mortar finish. Suitable for self-smoothing floor screeds in thin layers of 1.5mm to 3mm. Sikafloor® -81 EpoCem® not only helps create a superbly-level floor, it offers excellent moisture control.
Installed to the client’s full satisfaction and agreed timeframe, Sika’s system is seamless and robust, ideal for providing Pharmaserve with a floor that will withstand the rigours of heavy footfall and potentially hazardous chemicals in a hygiene-critical production environment.
