Chemical Resistant Finish on Kennel Project

Details:
Dog Kennel Renovation

Problem:
After years of service, the existing coating in the kennel was flaking and scratching off the concrete from abuse.  The owner of the dog kennel facility needed a chemical and urine resistant floor system that would not peel or flake from the animals.  Furthermore, down-time was minimal because the owner of the dog kennel couldn’t shut-down his facility for more than 5-days because of the lost revenue.

To make matters worse, the slab was “on-grade” and DUREX suspected a moisture vapor problem due to the blisters in the existing coating.

Solution:
DUREX removed the existing paint coating with a combination of shot-blasters and diamond grinders.  DUREX then applied moisture mitigation system to treat the suspected moisture problem in the concrete substrate.  After treating the slab, DUREX applied a self-leveling epoxy slurry with a polyaspartic finish coat to withstand the scratching, urine, and cleaning procedures.

The project was completed in 5 days.
