Rejuvenating a Factory Floor?
02 March 2021 Posted in , , ,

So – maybe you own or maintain a factory or warehouse, and the concrete floor is showing signs of age but its fundamental purpose still exists – and you’re considering upgrading the facility.

Or conversely, perhaps the building is being re-purposed. New layout? New production line? Or perhaps even converting to retail or multi-purpose space?

Either way, you’ll be rejuvenating the floors.

Don’t overlook the concrete!

Whether you’re planning on polishing, or painting, or installing floor coverings – you want a good quality concrete substrate to work with. Aged concrete may show signs of micro-cracking, softening, or carbonation and dusting on the surface. This deterioration must be arrested!


Moisture in new concrete is a very real and common threat. However you may be surprised to learn that moisture moving through existing concrete can also cause issues – particularly when new coatings or floor coverings are applied.

One simple treatment

Deal with multiple substrate issues using one simple one-pass treatment!

Spray-applied AQURON 2000 induces a hydrogel within the porosity of the concrete. This means

  • Concrete is hardened, with anti-dust benefit, to a depth of 150mm
  • Micro-cracking healed, up to 0.5mm wide
  • No moisture movement issues
  • Improved substrate for grinding or polishing
  • 100% compatible with any coating, adhesive or epoxy designed for bare concrete


Other scenarios

  • Concrete ceilings and soffits also require protection. Concrete dust from deteriorating ceilings is actually a health hazard to the users of the space beneath. Ask about AQURON 1000 for sealing, hardening and anti-dusting of concrete ceilings and soffits!
  • Precast concrete walls need protection from weather exposure, and the resulting discolouration. AQURON 2000 can waterproof and protect vertical surfaces.
