Design, Installation, and Maintenance of Protective Polymer Flooring Systems for Concrete
|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
Concrete is subject to deterioration by a variety of mechanisms. Properly selected and applied flooring systems can protect from deterioration caused by impact, abrasion, and chemical attack, as well as provide the features and benefits described in Section 1 of this report. This technical committee report provides information on the design, installation, and maintenance of protective polymer flooring systems that are applied and directly bonded to concrete.
Numerous standards, conference papers, books, and technical reports on many aspects of polymer flooring for concrete have been published by SSPC, ICRI, NACE, and other organizations. This report focuses on those aspects of design, materials, and installation procedures that can help the user attain long-term service from a variety of polymer flooring systems for a wide range of applications. This report is intended for use by manufacturers, specifiers, applicators, and facility owners who specify protective polymer flooring systems for concrete.
This report was prepared by the SSPC/ICRI/NACE Joint Task Group
N (NACE TG 005) on Coatings for Concrete Floors. This task group
was comprised of members from all three organizations. At SSPC the
Task Group was administered by the C.1 Unit Committee on Coatings
and sponsored by Committee C.1.6 on Coatings for Concrete. At ICRI
the Subcommittee on Polymer Floors was administered by the
Technical Activities Committee and sponsored by the Committee on
Coatings and Waterproofing. At NACE, the Task Group was
administered by Specific Technology Group (STG) 02 on Protective
Coatings and Linings-Atmospheric.
