FOOD PROCESSER – MILWAUKEE, WI – UCRETE® UD200 & RG – CASE STUDY

Surface Solutions, Inc. has installed several UCRETE flooring systems for this food processer with great success, so when a chemical storage room in their Milwaukee, Wisconsin facility needs a facelift, our expert installation crew is there.

2.5-Day Work Time

After removing the delaminated epoxy mortar, the 2,300-square-foot floor is sloped to a single drain at 1/8-inch per foot using BASF MT Rapid Mortar 1061 Grout. One-hundred-fifty L’ of 3-inch cant cove base is built using BASF UCRETE RG in the Charcoal color. Surface Solutions installs BASF UCRETE UD200, also in Charcoal.

This work takes two-and-a-half days, and the chemical storage room returns to service just 12 hours afterward.
