Laboratory, York University

A York University, in Yate, needed to replace a 400m2 floor in one of their laboratories. Luckily, experienced contractors and CFA members, NKS Flooring Ltd. stepped in to help. 

The project started with the power floated floor being diamond ground by the company’s team of fitters. Followed by sub-floor preparation using UltraFloor DPM IT, an UltraFloor primer and Level IT Two.

DPM IT is a solvent free, two-part epoxy resin system. The product cures to provide a waterproof surface membrane that allows fast installation of cement-based surfaces, thus reducing waiting times and costs.

NKS Flooring Ltd. then prepared the waterproofed substrate with an UltraFloor polymer emulsion primer for non-porous surfaces so it was ready to receive Level IT Two.

To help ensure a perfect finish from the chosen sheet vinyl floor covering, UltraFloor’s two-part latex levelling compound, Level IT Two was applied by trowel and spiked roller. Ideal for levelling uneven internal substrates, the product combines excellent flow characteristics with strong adhesion properties through the inclusion of a synthetic latex liquid component. Level IT Two was applied at a thickness of 6mm throughout this project. 

The high performance of the UltraFloor products ensured that sub-floor preparation could be completed within 2 days.
