Machine shop floor turned into Rugged and Beautiful Surface

June 3, 2020Uncategorized

Satellite Tool & Machine Co., Inc. is a machine shop located in South Windsor, CT. Established in 1980, the shop has serviced the community for decades. When it came time to resurface their warehouse floor, they turned to the experts at Custom Concrete Solutions.

How Big was that Floor??

The job was big—and we mean big — 62,000 sq. ft., to be exact. The shop initially came to us looking for a basic concrete polish, but the floor was quite oily and contaminated. We needed to come up with a solution that would work effectively to resist oil spills and messy chemicals. Unlike polished concrete, epoxy won’t be damaged when harsh chemicals or oil are spilled. After considering the options, Satellite Tool went with our industrial epoxy system.

To start, we did one pass on the entire floor using a dustless grinding system. This is standard operating procedure required by the manufacturer for a proper bond of the liquid material. We applied a heavy-duty industrial type epoxy with a urethane top-coat in order to give the floor a rugged durable shine.

The facility requested custom aisle ways in a variety of colors and textures. For this, we used a double broadcast quartz epoxy for a slip-resistant, colored surface.

Custom, Slip Resistant Aisles

Custom Concrete Solutions worked around the shop’s busy construction and machine delivery schedule and completed the floor in phases over a 3-month period. The team normally applies 14,000 square feet of epoxy a day, but can work to accommodate most schedules. Satellite Tool & Machine were very satisfied with the finished product.
