Stopgap 800 Wearcoat provides a strong grounding at Travis Perkins

Stopgap 800 Wearcoat self-levelling floor compound from F. Ball and Co. Ltd., the UK's leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives and subfloor preparation products, has been used to renovate warehouse floors at a branch of Travis Perkins in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire.

The removal of an existing wall in the Travis Perkins branch warehouse left a 15mm deep gap within the concrete subfloor, which J D Builders were contracted to fill. Stopgap 800 Wearcoat was specified because the floor required a hard wearing surface that could weather the high levels of daily foot traffic and movement of heavy products being sold in the builders merchant warehouse.

After conducting a moisture measurement test and determining that the subfloor was dry enough to proceed, contractors primed the area with Stopgap P131, to promote good adhesion between the floor compound and concrete subfloor. Once the primer was suitably dry, Stopgap 800 was then applied.

Stopgap 800 Wearcoat is a self-levelling commercial and industrial grade floor compound used for upgrading and renovating new and existing internal floors in light to heavy-duty applications, where floorcoverings are not required to be installed. It is suitable for use in areas such as warehouses and workshops and can be pump applied when working in large areas.

Phil Gunia, working with J D Builders, said: "Anybody who visits a Travis Perkins warehouse will know that a hard wearing floor is essential for the work that they do. Stopgap 800 delivered just the right finish and was ready to receive foot traffic again after only three hours."
