CHALLENGES

Adapt analysis software and a laser level survey revealed slab deflections of between ½” and 5/8” well above the maximum allowable limit which caused a rolling substrate. There were multiple cracks at column cores which needed to be chased, bridged and repaired. Areas that would be subject to heavy loads and high traffic patterns needed additional flexural strength.

SOLUTION

Column core openings were wrapped with foam barriers and the substrate was then shot blasted. The floor was primed with UZIN PE 260 Substrate Primer and then UZIN RR 201 Substrate Reinforcing Mesh was installed at all freight hallways, support columns and over minor repaired cracks. UZIN NC 150 Project Plus Leveling Compound was poured into the shallower areas and UZIN NC 170 Premium Leveling Compound was poured into the deeper areas. All poured sections were ramped down with UZIN NC 182 Patching and Repair Compound.
