FLOOR TOPPINGS – Blue Jays Way, Toronto
Blue Jays Way, Toronto
Crack repair, floor membrane installation
The kitchen and bar floors of the Marriot Hotel located next to the Blue Jays Baseball Club required recoating, with the total area of approximately 450 SQF.
Kitchen floor: Deteriorated epoxy coating.
Bar floor: Slippery ceramic tiles and hard-to-clean grouting.
Normal aging due to exposure to grease and high foot traffic.
Red epoxy coating was specified for the kitchen floor, and beige polyaspartic coating – for the bar floor.
Application design included crack repair, surface preparation, and membrane installation.
The contractor was instructed to do surface preparation first: before the membranes could be installed, slight grinding of the entire surface was to be done to remove the existing kitchen floor epoxy and ensure proper membrane adhesion, as well as expose all the cracks in the concrete floor surface (to repair those before applying epoxy coating). To prepare the bar floor surface for membrane installation, slight grinding had to be done to remove the glaze and ensure sufficient adhesion.
The cracks were to be repaired next: they had to be cleaned out with a grinder, to remove all the loose material, and coated with Polyforce Plus Adhesive. Crack filler was to be applied next, to fully repair the cracked surface.
Two layers of a polyurea-based membrane were to be applied: a basecoat, and a topcoat broadcast with non-slip aggregates for worker safety. A red epoxy coating was specified for the kitchen floor, and a beige polyaspartic coating for the bar floor.
