New Concrete Restoration System Removes the Need to Replace Old Pitted Concrete Floors

Florock's FloroBuild Epoxy Mortar restores spalled and cracked concrete surfaces without having to break up old concrete surfaces. FloroBuild Epoxy Mortar creates a 1/4 inch cap providing over 100,000 psi of compressive strength.


Chicago, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/19/2007 -- When spalled and cracked concrete surfaces need to be restored to a smooth texture, and be tough enough to withstand heavy forklift traffic, it is not necessary to break up the concrete and re pour. With Florock FloroBuild Epoxy Mortar, you can install a 1/4 inch cap with excellent adhesion, compressive strength, impact resistance and tensile strength.

The FloroBuild Epoxy Mortar is made up of a 100% solids, solvent free Epoxy and Activator, which are mixed with specialized graded aggregates to create a dense trowel applied concrete cap.

Tom Lux, Florock’s Field Technical Manager said “The trick in most mortar flooring systems is to find the precise balance of resin to aggregate to end up with an easy to trowel mortar”. Ed Stover of B&T Coatings said “The Florock FloroBuild Epoxy Mortar is easy to use. Just mix 3/4 gallon epoxy with 1/4 gal activator and one bag of Florock Graded Aggregates, and you get a perfect mix every time”.
