Did You Know We Coat Containment Pits?

Posted by Skipper Clark on 1/11/19 9:07 AM

CONTAINMENT Pits and Curbing/Sloping 

Here at HooverWells we are often contracted to coat or construct a wide variety of containment pits. These areas come in all shapes and sizes. From indoor to outdoor and small to large, containment pits require a certain level of expertise to be completed correctly. But what is a containment pit?

Secondary Spill containment

A containment pit is a form of spill control that helps keep things like hazardous liquids and waste from polluting a work space or even the environment. The overall goal of a containment pit is to prevent liquids or other materials from escaping the desired area. Often these pits are located around or under machines and presses that omit oils, hydraulic fluid, or other contaminants.

The Best Defense Against Concrete Defects

Posted by Skipper Clark on 12/14/18 8:54 AM

While working in existing facilities, we encounter a wide range of existing concrete conditions. The worst of which are oil saturated floors and pitted concrete surfaces with exposed aggregate. Concrete in this condition is on the verge of needing to be removed and replaced. Replacing concrete requires an extensive amount of downtime and cure time. This process is very expensive in both money and time. Downtime in production costs much more than simply taking the preventative steps needed to avoid having to replace the concrete.

RESURFACING EXISTING CONCRETE USING AN EPOXY OVERLAYMENT

Here at Hoover Wells, our Rez-Stone 9500 ¼” Epoxy Mortar System is the perfect solution to eliminating concrete replacement in most circumstances. This system requires shot blasting and cleaning of the existing concrete and applying a Rez-Stone epoxy primer. The next step is to patch any large depressions in the concrete and then install our Rez-Stone 9500 ¼”, trowel applied, epoxy mortar over the entire area. After installing the ¼” epoxy mortar, you now have a like-new surface. We like to look at this as a blank canvas for any of our Rez-Stone top coats.

How to Select an Epoxy Floor System

Posted by Skipper Clark on 11/30/18 9:03 AM

When and Where to use General service epoxies vs. specialty coating systems

Expanding on our previous post on “How to select a flooring system for your facility,” we will now look at how to select a specific epoxy flooring system for your facility using the same three factors: the type of facility, the budget and the current condition.

But first, what exactly is an epoxy coating?

Epoxy flooring is the most efficient way to enhance and maintain your work environment, while still providing a durable flooring system that is abrasion/impact resistant. This epoxy is also known as polymers and is made up of different materials based on the epoxy’s function. (“Polymer” come from the Greek words for many + part.) The coating’s main purpose is to protect the concrete it covers but has many other functions like line-striping and static-resistance. Our Rez-Stone epoxy coatings transform even the worst floors into a clean and safe work environment.

How to find the right floor system for your facility

Posted by Skipper Clark on 11/16/18 9:14 AM

THE 3 FACTORS TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION

When selecting a flooring system for your facility, there are three factors to consider: the type of facility, the budget and the current condition of the substrate.

Type of Facility:

The first questions to ask yourself is: What are we doing in our facility? Asking yourself what the building’s use is will determine what type of floor system best suits your facility. For example, a food processing facility will require a different flooring system than that of an automotive manufacturer. Food industry flooring requirements are usually driven by government standards against bacteria and whatnot. On the other hand, the type of flooring in the automotive industry is driven by durability, impact resistance, safety and sometimes aesthetics.

The Basics of Concrete Polishing

Posted by Skipper Clark on 10/26/18 8:57 AM

WHAT IS CONCRETE POLISHING?

Being in the commercial and industrial flooring industry, we hear many different terms that can be confusing like shot blasting, DOI (Distinctness of Image) or RA (Roughness Average). Concrete polishing is the refinement of concrete surfaces using chemicals, metal bonded and resin bonded diamonds to achieve the desired finish. There is an endless amount of combinations between chemicals and metal/resin bonded diamonds to help obtain the desired finish. Our 40+ years of experience helps in understanding what is the best combination in your particular circumstance. The Concrete Polishing Association of America classifies finished gloss levels from 1 (flat) to 4 (highly polished) and aggregate exposure as A (little aggregate), B, C and D (large aggregate) depending on depth of desired surface cut.
