Specialised construction products supplier a.b.e Construction Chemicals, part of the Chryso Southern Africa group, says its a.b.e screed polyurethane (PU) flooring system has been specified for a variety of warehouse and factory flooring projects throughout South Africa.
Recent applications include the installation of over 4 000 m2 of heavy-duty industrial flooring at construction company Sandvik’s manufacturing plant in Jet Park, new floors for beverage manufacturer Ceres Beverage Company and flooring for refrigeration and freezer rooms at retail outlet Shoprite Checkers’ supermarket, in the Ballito Bay Shopping Mall, in KwaZulu-Natal.
The company also used its PU flooring products for the refurbishment of its own warehouse floors at its Boksburg premises, in Johannesburg.
The a.b.e screed PU flooring system is a three-component PU mortar and is part of a large range of flooring products supplied by the company.
The range includes over 30 lines, covering various facets of flooring including coatings, screeds, case hardeners, tile pointing products, adhesives and dry shakes.
a.b.e Construction Chemicals marketing GM Stephen Rault says the a.b.e screed PU system provides a heavy-duty, thermal shock-resistant, hard-wearing floor finish with exceptional chemical resistance.
Typical areas of application for the system include food processing factories and chemicals processing and pharmaceutical plants.
“The product is suited for use in wet and dry factory process areas or warehouses where the floors may be subjected to hot fluid spillage and steam,” he says.
Some of the benefits of the system include: impact and chemical resistance; heat resistance to 120 °C, which is suited for industrial use; it being steam cleanable, making it suitable for agricultural use; a seamless and hygienic finish when sealed, eliminating crevices where dirt and bacteria can collect; low maintenance needs; a nonslip finish for improved safety; a high abrasion resistance to reduce wear and tear; low odour during installation; and being solvent-free and environment-friendly.
