Taranto, Tandragee, Co. Armagh, UK

the challenge

A protective floor coating system to be installed on a 40 year old concrete slab that had been damaged and heavily contaminated with oil having been used to service heavy machinery by a capital equipment manufacturer specialising in piling solutions.

meet the client

Taranto provides contractors, engineers and architects with a range of cost-effective, quality-assured and guaranteed piling solutions.

The company is headquartered in Tandragee, Northern Ireland on a 70-acre manufacturing site.

the project

The floor, located in the company’s service maintenance and repair facility had become saturated with oil having been used to service the company’s heavy-duty piling equipment.

Impact had also damaged the concrete slab, requiring a good level of surface preparation to remediate and level the concrete prior to the installation of a heavy-duty, seamless polyurethane floor coating system.

Vebro’s solution

Vebro Polymers’ self-levelling polyurethane flooring system vebrores PU SL HD incorporating an oil tolerant primer, vebro EP OT Primer, was expertly installed by Advanced Flooring Systems.

vebro EP OT Primer is a high strength epoxy resin designed to prime environments where there has been high exposure to oil leading to residual contamination. This was applied over two coats prior to a full sand scatter.

vebrores PU SL HD is a self-levelling system laid between 2.0 – 4.0 mm thick.

vebrores PU SL HD offers outstanding strength and performance and is ideal for use in high-traffic areas requiring a highly durable, scratch, stain and wear resistant floor finish that is easy to wipe clean.

The system is low emissions AgBB certified, displays static crack-bridging properties (10% elongation at breaks) and achieves compressive strengths of over 50 N/mm2 making it ideal for high-wear, high-impact environments.

The client was delighted with the resulting finish and professional installation by the AFS team.
