In this section we deal with all the points that are of vital importance to carry out quality work that offers peace of mind to the entrepreneur when he entrusts his pavement and stopping the activity to our company.


We will try to explain why important and professionally contrasted decisions have to be made before the application of an industrial flooring, we will see dianovados, shot blasting, milling, sanding, vacuuming, treatment of contaminated surfaces, zero deliveries, etc ... everything necessary to a first class job.

1 - Actions for the preparation of industrial flooring before applying resins


In any application of continuous industrial resin pavements we must bear in mind the previous preparation work that is necessary.


As a general rule, we find old concrete, terrazzo, ceramic tile, asphalt, etc. pavements in poor condition and that require specific treatments before applying any layer of resins.

Preparation of industrial floors

The feet of any industrial repair in the application of industrial floors and pavements of resins in Barcelona, it is essential to understand how the current support is, if it has good mechanical resistance, if it has oil contamination, if there is humidity due to the water table, if it has figurations , etc ... only in this way we will be successful in any system proposed to the client. Particular attention should be paid to this point of application as it leads directly to success if we listen to what the pavement has to say.

Regularization in industrial pavements

In general, in any regularization of industrial floors and pavements with self-leveling mortars for the application of resins, it is essential to understand how the current support is. So it almost always needs a previous regularization to make the floor as smooth as possible in order to apply a good continuous resin system without deficiencies. All the self-leveling mortars we use are of industrial resistance according to EN-13813: CT-C40-F10-A22. Pedestrian walkable 4-6 hours | 24 hour road traffic | Charges 72 hours

Repair of joints and fissures in industrial floors

In all cases, with prolonged use and frenzied activity, pavement wear occurs and this is when we can provide solutions for the repair of joints, fissures, cracks, small unevenness in floors and industrial pavements in Barcelona, thus prolonging the life of these and considerably reducing the cost of new renovations by the client.

Maintenance and cleaning of industrial floors

Maintenance or cleaning must be carried out on all industrial floors and pavements in Barcelona, which is why Grupo Pavin signs maintenance contracts to ensure their correct use and enjoyment with all customers who so desire, thus prolonging the life of these and considerably reducing the cost of new renovations by the client. We offer all our clients or companies that already have industrial flooring applied to their facilities the possibility of cleaning it properly, thus prolonging its useful life.

Half sanitary reeds in industrial pavements

Industrial floors and pavements in Barcelona for industries of all kinds call for finishes with sanitary half reeds, work carried out by Grupo Pavin very often, since part of the wall must be covered to obtain maximum water tightness and chemical resistance (notably in areas of production of retention basins, ...), as well as facilitating cleaning at right angles.

2 - How to prepare supports to apply industrial flooring?


We have multiple types of supports and situations in the works that we face daily and that has generated that we have all kinds of machinery to resolve all possible setbacks, thus preparing any type of support with guarantees.


It is worth investing time in assessing the general condition of the support, if it looks good, does not have cracks, there is no contamination due to oil spills, there is no humidity in it and we can apply any type of solvent-based system, 100% solids etc.


Understanding what an old industrial flooring we want to renovate tells us is crucial for the successful application of a continuous resin flooring of any type.


We must know: its hardness, resistance to abrasion, humidity due to capillary lift, planimetry, cracks, contamination by constant or occasional spills of oils, solvents, acids, etc.


This well valued will assure us a guaranteed success in the application of any industrial resin pavement, the details and deliveries with other pavements, vertical surfaces, manholes, drains, etc ... is the first thing that is evaluated since for all it continues to be the icing on the cake and are usually break points that if not treated correctly can ruin a good pavement.

3 - How to regularize supports to apply industrial flooring?


It is a mortar composed of sand, cement, water and additive that is used to prepare surfaces (both exterior and interior), hardening, smoothing and leveling them. One of the characteristics of a self-leveling mortar is the high fluidity due to the adhesion it presents, this material being very liquid allowing it to level itself, which is why it is called a self-leveling mortar.


Ease of preparation


The self-leveling mortar levels itself, thus reducing the costs derived from the work and guaranteeing considerable time savings.


The self-leveling mortar achieves a perfect anchorage with the support, thus offering a higher quality finish, preventing air that can cause breakage and allowing the placement of any finish on the floors.


It dries within 24 hours and after said time, the chosen pavement can be installed, so the completion times of the work are again reduced


Self-leveling mortar does not crack or crack, it is highly resistant to surface wear


A perfect planimetry is obtained.

4 - How to repair joints and fissures in industrial floors?


Putty joints, cracks, blows on industrial floors and pavements


By definition, a joint is an opening between different parts of a structure or between 2 or more contiguous surfaces. This is necessary to allow and absorb the movements of the structure, as well as the dimensional changes in the materials caused by temperature gradients (dilation), seismic movements, movements due to water pressure, etc.


The sealing of the joints provides tightness against aggressive agents, in addition to improving aesthetics and preventing the accumulation of dirt. In static joints the relative movement between the adjacent parts is minimized by the construction details or by their dimensions and they do not put stress on the sealing products so any system is suitable for their treatment, the rigid ones being the most used .


Joints with movement subject the sealant to stress cycles due to relative displacement between adjacent parts. Among them we find the expansion joints and the delivery or perimeter joints. In these cases elastic, fluid (only for horizontal application) or thixotropic putties are recommended.

5 - How to maintain and clean industrial floors?


Industrial cleaning is a definition that encompasses different techniques, actions and products that are used for proper industrial hygiene, avoiding contaminating factors that can be harmful to health within the scope of an industry.


To clean a surface, different factors must be taken into account before cleaning. Depending on the nature of the dirt we want to clean, we will use different cleaning techniques or products.


Thanks to industrial cleaning we are able to maintain safety and hygiene in today's industry. In Spain, the guidelines set by the CE are used to comply with the safety and hygiene standards that set the guidelines and procedures to be followed in each case and industry.

6 - How to apply sanitary half canes on industrial floors?


What are sanitary half reeds in industrial floors and pavements?


The concave roundings of the angle formed between the roof skirt and any element that protrudes from it are called sanitary half canes or sanitary scotia, they are formed by a round edge of hard-elastic mastic and subsequently giving a resin-sealed finish .


The formation of the 3 cm x 3 cm perimeter sanitary half-round is commonly carried out in the same materials, colors and finishes as the rest of the system carried out on the entire industrial flooring.


Industrial floors and pavements for industries of all kinds ask for finishes with sanitary half reeds or sanitary scotch.


Half canes greatly facilitate a comprehensive cleaning of the pavement in any industrial environment as it prevents the accumulation of dirt at right angles.
