This presentation is the third in a series of concrete floor coatings. This topic crosses several markets depending upon the service area to be coated. Selecting a floor coating system for areas considered “aggressive” starts with a definition of the performance requirements based upon the use conditions. Initial cost and aesthetics of the flooring system account for minor considerations where protection of personnel, assets and the environment are concerned. This presentation will focus on the various physical and chemical exposures that define the aggressive environment. System qualification, specification and installation considerations will be addressed. Finally, inspection and maintenance play a greater role in an aggressive environment. Participants are eligible for one AIA LU credit.
1. Provide perspective with respect to aggressive environments and then review floor coating requirements to meet the performance demands.
2. Recognize the various polymeric chemistries available for flooring systems and what benefits they provide to the system installation and performance.
3. Review key guidance documents for the specification and detailing flooring systems for aggressive environments.
4. Understanding the importance of installation, inspection and maintenance considerations to the immediate and long term performance of the flooring system
