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.
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.
