Floor Leveling, Floor Scabbling & Complete Floor Preparation
WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
We Diamond grind & Shotblast Surfaces, We also apply non slip coatings and rapid dry durable coatings.
By removing only the thin contaminated layer of your floor or surface, all of our dust-free preparation techniques eliminate the need for further demolition and removal, saving you time and money.
FLOOR PREPARATION SERVICES ARE IDEAL FOR:
- Providing a Perfect Profile for Thin Film Coatings
- Leveling out high spots on concrete slabs
- Paint & Coating Removal
- Increased traction and stability
- Removal of oil, solvents & surface contaminants
- Removing glue, adhesives & epoxy coatings
- Re-Profiling Older Concrete Floors
DUST FREE CONCRETE GRINDING BY STONE SEAL
Our Equipment range includes large vacuums for an environmentally friendly grind and can be fitted with a range of tools for removing, waterproof membranes, elastomeric coatings, heavily built up adhesives and much more. Diamond grinding tools are easily fixed on for the preparation of surfaces for thin coating applications and are available for both hard and soft surfaces. Specialist diamond tools can be used for the rapid removal of adhesive, coatings and latex from substrates. Concrete grinders are also the ideal choice for repairing imperfections such as high spots in concrete floors, slabs and walkways; gently evening out any imperfections to leave a smooth finish. Grinding concrete surfaces is the preferred floor preparation option where either a polished finish or a micro-fine substrate is required for a surface coating.
DUST FREE CONCRETE SHOT BLASTING BY STONE SEAL
Shot blasting machines utilise dust free technology to give an environmentally friendly work space. The used abrasive and contaminants are vacuumed up into a recovery unit, a closed filtered cylinder which is environmentally friendly & efficient.
Shot blasting is the preferred method of preparing large area floor surfaces that must be cleaned and textured to establish the best adhesive properties; blasting also has the advantage of re-texturing any existing profile.
The process of blasting involves tiny steel balls (pellets) being fired at the surface to be cleaned/prepared via a high velocity rotating blast wheel. The speed variances along with the pellet size determine the texture. This allows adhesion for coatings and creates a physical grip.
DUST FREE CONCRETE PLANING & SCARIFYING BY STONESEAL
Planing machines use carbide tipped cutters connected to a high speed rotating drum to fracture the contaminated floor whilst abrading the concrete surface. This abrasion leads to a much rougher surface than shot blasting, but through the use of varying blades the smoothness of finish can be controlled.
There are many instances where a scarified finish is prefered to shot blasting. An example would be the removal of rubber deposits from airport runways via scarification leaves a cleaned surface with anti-skid properties. For thick, tough, durable surface coatings, a scarified finish provides a greater surface area for surface adhesion. Scarifying is also preferred over shot blasting when removing rubbery or sticky surfaces.
