Engineering and Manufacturing
Destec Engineering Ltd, designers and manufacturers of high-pressure pipe connectors for the oil and gas industry were looking for a hard-wearing floor finish for their manufacturing facility in Lincoln.
Having considered the possibility of a resin floor they contacted RESYN to discuss the options available to them. The company have a fully equipped machine workshop where its products are made.
Due to the manufacturing processes involved, Destec Engineering Ltd was looking for a hardwearing floor finish that could withstand their daily activities and that was easy to maintain.
Following a comprehensive consultation and site survey, RESYN specified the Degafloor QT system. The system incorporates a mix of resin and aggregate, which is trowel applied at a nominal thickness of 4mm to provide an extremely durable. The texture of the system can be varied to suit requirements and as the manufacturing at the facility is a dry process, additional seal coats were applied to provide a smoother finish. The Degafloor QT system is well-suited for dry manufacturing areas and is capable of withstanding the most demanding engineering environments.
As with all Degafloor products the QT system cures fully within just two hours of installation, meaning that RESYN could work with Destec Engineering Ltd to install the floor at a time most suited to their requirements. The area which totalled 350m2 was completed in one weekend and was fully cured before Monday, meaning the company could continue production as usual with no disruption.
Mike Ferry, Destec Engineering Ltd, ”When our new factory extension was completed, we decided to go for a quality flooring that would stand out and really complement the new extension. We required a hard-wearing, slip-resistant floor that would last us years. We contacted RESYN who gave a great service from start to finish. Plus they laid the floor over a weekend with no disruption. “
