Shot Blasting Surface Preparation


Shotblasting is an environmentally friendly and cost effective solution for preparing concrete floors. This process strips, cleans and profiles concrete surfaces that tend to retain chemicals, oils, mastics and other penetrating contaminants. Before any coating or floor system can be applied to a concrete floor, the surface must be profiled, making it free of chemicals, dirt and other contaminants that can act as a barrier to proper coating adhesion.

EER, Inc. has the technology to achieve controlled shotblasting results varying from a light etch to removing up to a half inch of concrete. The end result leaves the floor surfaces clean and dry with a uniform profile and texture which provides enhanced performance for new coatings and toppings to bond to. We utilize a wide range of specialized equipment and methods to insure your floor’s substrate will adhere to any coating adhesion.

Self-Leveling Cementitious Underlayment

Damaged or deteriorated concrete floors can be costly to replace and replacement may not be an option in some cases. One of the best solutions for clients is to overcoat and re-enforce damage concrete floors with cementitious overlay.

EER, Inc. installs self-leveling cementitious underlayment systems that are designed to level, smooth and repair interior floors. This type of system is typically used before other floor coverings are installed. Cementitious overlays are used to renew the surfaces of floors that are in exceptionally poor condition, repairing heavily eroded surfaces that were exposed to thermal shock, chemical exposure and high impact traffic. Cementitious overlays can be installed at different levels of thickness between feather edge and up to 1/2 of an inch or more if aggregate is used.

Once a concrete overlayment system has been installed, almost any other type of floor surface can be installed within 24 to 72 hours. Suitable floor coverings include tile, carpet, vinyl compositions tile, rubber and wood planks.

Industrial applications may also be applied such as epoxy, polishing, staining and waterproofing.

 

Chemical Resistant Floor System

Chemical resistant floor Systems that EER, Inc. installs are tough enough to withstand contact with the harshest chemicals and are designed to ensure that your floors remain durable and last for a very long time. For decades, many businesses have turned to EER, Inc. for chemical resistant flooring and have been pleased with the results.
