3 Types of Concrete Repair for Freezer and Cold Storage Floors
Concrete is affordable and generally requires minimal maintenance. It is a popular flooring and outdoor solution, but it’s not impenetrable to harm. When there is damage, most concrete restoration materials turn less effective in extreme temps.
The Low Temperature Challenging Environment
If temperatures fall below 32°F, epoxies and other adhesives are challenging to work within these low temperatures. And if the surfaces needing repair are under zero degrees Fahrenheit, workable repair becomes even more limited.
Cold moisture inside flooring limits bonding repair. Workability is compromised in function and form. Low temps make it difficult to manage mortars and epoxies. Materials become less viscous and fluid. Curing times run far longer and could freeze. How long depends upon substance temperatures, the volume of repair, temps of aggregate or sand when used, and the concrete’s warmth.
