One of our current jobs is a multi-phase waterproofing project at a large food processing plant located in South Etobicoke.
One of the challenges that this site presents is restricted access due to the nature of the business, as well as having to work in confined spaces, around the plant’s equipment. In addition, food processing cannot be interrupted, and work area must be kept free of contaminants. The environment is acidic, making repairs more difficult to carry out.
Concrete Patching and Restoration
The first part of the project consisted of repairing delaminated concrete edges along the drain in the large vat area.
Our specialized three-step patching procedure was followed: delaminated and unsound concrete was removed, industrial-strength adhesive was applied, and patching was installed.
The combination of Polyforce Plus Adhesive and Polymer Cement creates a monolithic patch which is able to restore structural integrity of the repaired slab, making recasting unnecessary.
