Polyurethane Joint Filling

Polyurethane Joint Filling

Engineered Surface Systems (ESS Canada) helps commercial and residential clients revive damaged and worn floors and turn them into a beautiful and functional state once again. A damaged, worn floor creates a dangerous working surface. Heavy loads can make the problem worse. Trips, slips, and falls are imminent when your floor is in bad shape. One of the techniques for bringing floors back to life is using joint fillers made of polyurethane materials that help to restore floor integrity. Take a look at why clients throughout Alberta choose polyurethane joint filling for their floors.

Why You Need to Upgrade the Concrete Joints in Your Concrete Floors

Slabs aren't impervious to pressure. When creating concrete slab floors, contractors use control joints to prevent random surface cracking from occurring. These joints are called:

  • Concrete control joints.
  • Isolation joints.
  • Cold-pour joints.

It's very important to allow for joint movement in concrete slabs due to the intense loads that commercial and industrial floors routinely endure. Just think of the weight of a piece of heavy machinery rolling across the concrete slab in a warehouse. As the machinery rolls over the floor, the slab will depress due to the weight. This causes the edge of the adjacent slab to become slightly exposed. This is where you run into the problem of chips and fragments forming within the slab. You will inevitably get large cracks and "fault lines" in your concrete when this is allowed to continue. Ultimately, concrete floor surfaces become so uneven that the issue creates uneven joint edges, which are serious safety hazards at a site.

What Is the Solution for Cracking, Chipping Concrete Floors Caused by Heavy Loads?

Concrete flooring experts are able to apply semi-rigid joint fillers made of polyurethane to prevent debris from pooling inside flooring joints. These fillers act to protect the joint edges of adjoining concrete surfaces from degrading. Here's a look at the process of using epoxy joint fillers to protect flooring:

  • Scraping away the sides of the joints.
  • Applying a release agent that repels caulk/joint sealants from concrete's surface.
  • Filling joints with filler.
  • Once the filler has cured, a scraper is used to remove an excess filler from the edges. This will create a neat, even finished product.
