Fosroc offers the Nitodek Flooring System (FS)

WHEN looking to complete flooring refurbishments, a quick turnaround and a rapid return to service are often key specification drivers for the client. To assist with this, Fosroc offers the Nitodek Flooring System (FS) which comprises of different components that create a variation of systems that can reportedly be tailored to individual project requirements.

While flooring products based on polyurethane technology have been used to provide durability and flexibility for some years, slow curing times have been restrictive, particularly for projects requiring a fast turnaround.

Nitodek Flooring Systems combines MMA technology with polyurethanes, which reportedly makes the product very easy to apply. They’re also rapid curing, even at low temperatures, with each layer of product only taking about 60 minutes to cure.

Says the company: ‘Owing to its hybrid formulation, the Nitodek Flooring System retains the hardwearing and flexible elastomeric properties associated with other polyurethane membranes, and so provides outstanding impact resistance.

‘It’s also highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals and can even bridge cracks to stand the test of time. Nitodek FS can be used in several situations, including multi-storey car parks, industrial floors, podium decks, balconies, and walkways. Various warranties are available, depending on the project situation and system that is selected.’

A recent example of a project where Nitodek FS was specified was a local authority housing renovation in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. The project, completed in May this year, involved resurfacing a first-floor balcony walkway. To minimise disruption for residents, a quick turnaround was essential.

To help establish the correct products and systems to use for the project, Fosroc worked in partnership with client, specifiers, and specialist contractors to ensure the most suitable products and systems were specified, in terms of what was appropriate for the building, and to meet client requirements.

‘Involvement from conception to completion ensured project success for all stakeholders with Fosroc’s broad product portfolio providing a complete building materials solution,’ says the company.

Belfast-based contractors Novo Remedial Solutions carried out the work. ‘We’ve partnered with Fosroc for many years to specify and supply various specialised products,’ says Michael McGowan, director of Novo Remedial Solutions. ‘For this project we prioritised application speed and quality of finish, and Fosroc’s Nitodek FS helped us deliver that for the client.’

The speed and ease of application meant the balcony was reopened for foot traffic much earlier, reducing impact and inconvenience, says Fosroc. ‘The balcony now has tough, waterproof coating with a safe, seamless anti-slip finish.’
