Freezer Floor Concrete Repair
How to Use KwikBond for Concrete Freezer Floor Repair
Preparing a commercial building freezer floor for repairing concrete requires careful attention to detail to ensure the longevity of the repair. Here are the steps for preparing a commercial building freezer floor for repairing concrete:
Step 1: Safety Precautions
Before beginning any work on the freezer floor, make sure to wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves, safety glasses, and a respirator if necessary. The freezer should also be turned off to prevent any condensation from forming.
KwikBond is a two-component epoxy resin adhesive that can be used to repair and restore industrial and commercial building freezer floors. Here are the steps to apply KwikBond to repair freezer floors:
Step 2: Surface Preparation
The first step is to prepare the surface of the freezer floor to ensure that it is clean, dry, and free of any debris or contaminants. Remove any loose or crumbling concrete and use a grinder or shot blaster to create a rough surface for better adhesion.
Step 3: Mixing the KwikBond
KwikBond comes in two parts – resin and hardener. Mix the two components together in the recommended ratio provided by the manufacturer. Mix thoroughly for at least 2-3 minutes.
Step 4: Applying the KwikBond
Use a trowel to apply the KwikBond to the damaged area. Spread the adhesive evenly to create a smooth surface. If the damage is deep, apply the adhesive in layers, allowing each layer to dry before adding the next.
Step 5: Curing Time
Allow the KwikBond to cure according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. This typically takes around 24 hours, but it can vary depending on the temperature and humidity levels.
Step 6: Finishing
Once the KwikBond has fully cured, use a grinder to smooth out any rough spots or uneven areas. You can also add a non-slip coating to the surface to improve safety.
Ongoing Steps: Maintenance
Regularly inspect the repaired area for any signs of wear or damage. Clean the surface with a mild detergent and warm water as needed.
It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using KwikBond or any other epoxy resin adhesive to ensure a successful repair.
