Strong seamless surface for lab at pharmaceutical plant

Strong seamless surface for lab at pharmaceutical plant

A laboratory floor at a large pharmaceutical plant in Runcorn has been refurbished with a seamless surface thanks to Sika.

A total of 500m2 of flooring was supplied during the renovation at the Pharmaserve site in Runcorn.

Sika’s smooth, robust and easy-to-clean EpoCem® system was specified.

Contractor, Mike Thelwell from Thelwell Flooring Ltd, was selected to carry-out the Pharmaserve floor refurbishment.

Initial works involved the installation of Sikafloor®-155 WN, a solvent-free, water-dispersed primer based on epoxy resin.

Sikafloor®-161 primer was then applied in preparation for Sikafloor®-210 PurCem®, and Sikafloor®-260 PurCem®, multi-component, gloss and scratch-resistant, coloured polyurethane hybrid screeds.

Sikafloor®-81 EpoCem® supplied the three-part, epoxy-modified, fine-textured mortar finish.

Suitable for self-smoothing floor screeds in thin layers of 1.5mm to 3mm, Sikafloor®-81 EpoCem® not only helps create a superbly-level floor, it offers excellent moisture control.

Sika’s EpoCem® system will withstand the rigours of heavy footfall and potentially hazardous chemicals in a hygiene-critical production environment.
