Thin patch applications, decorative protective finish
Since clinic and, especially, hospital operation cannot be suspended at any time, appropriate materials must be used, and specialized application procedures must be followed to ensure there are no interruptions. This requires using low-VOC materials and doing most of the work at night.
All loose unsound concrete is removed, and concrete surfaces are cleaned in preparation for patching and restoration.
Under traditional repair methods, patching concrete requires a minimum of two-inch demolition in the affected area. The use of industrial-strength specialized adhesive and polymer cement permits thin patch applications, even on walls and ceilings. The combination of these materials creates a monolithic patch which is able to restore structural integrity of repaired slab.
To repair a crack on any concrete surface, a clearly defined procedure is followed. Cracks are prepped and then treated with specialized, industrial-strength adhesive, after which they are filled with polymer cement and a waterproofing primer.
