Concrete Walls and Ceilings

Hankinson EPIC undertakes the repair and reinforcement of concrete structures through the combination of the most suitable surface preparation techniques and the expert application of the specified protective coating/repair systems, including those specified for nuclear sector containment areas.

Surface preparation of concrete is fundamental to the determination of how successfully it will be protected from degradation during its lifecycle; high quality surface preparation ensures that nothing will interfere with the adhesion of the selected protective coating or repair system. Hankinson EPIC uses a wide range of surface preparation methods selected according to original concrete conditions and the type of protective coating system or repair material to be applied.

Our protective coating solutions use reliable products and proven application techniques that have an extensive track record of concrete protection, from decorative thin film through self-levelling toppings, to waterproofing polymer overlays.

For a wide range of concrete storage situations, our approach provides benefits such as resistance to a broad range of chemicals, abrasion and corrosion protection, structural strengthening and the protection against water and liquids ingress/egress.

To make surfaces impermeable and to protect them from external wear and tear, our expert teams are qualified to apply any of the following technical linings:

  • Hot sprayable flexible membranes (polyuria or polyurethane), which are efficient and highly flexible (crack bridging and weather resistant), with an extremely short curing period (just a few minutes)
  • Cold applied solvent free reinforced epoxy, which is highly mechanical and chemical resistant
  • Flexible manufactured membranes that can be seamed on site and that are suitable for ageing or friable substrates.
