Products used:

FreedomTuff 5145 Polyurea Joint Sealer
FreedomTuff 2202 Polyurea
FreedomTuff 4300 Polyurethane
FreedomTuff 4000 Polyaspartic

Project Description: Before opening the new side of the park the client experienced a problem with one particular ride. The ride was a metal deck with cars running over the top creating extreme wear due to dragging urethane casters. The requirements were a decorative, non-skid, high abrasion, corrosive protecting system, with fast turnaround. The first epoxy system showed significant signs of wear in just 2 days of demoing the ride.

Application: Custom Tents were erected to provide privacy and stable ambient conditions.  Dehumidifiers were used on both top and bottom side of the steel plates to avoid flash rust and cold wall affect. the existing coating was removed using steel shot and terminators. the steel deck was blasted using 60% steel shot round and 40% angular grit to achieve a 4-   6 mils profile.  FreedomTuff 5145 polyurea joint sealer was used in the bolt holes and expansion joints. FreedomTuff 2202 polyurea was applied at 60 mils.  FreedomTuff stonegrip was applied at 24 mils and a  custom color quartz was broadcast to excess in the stonegrip. 5 mils of gripseal clear was applied as a lock coat and to provide additional wear properties.

Results: The composite system was the only one of 5 systems demoed that worked!  The finished system provided a decorative look that allowed the themers to achieve exactly what they were shooting for.  The system also provided a non-skid requirement since there is constant foot traffic.  The client was “very impressed” with the wear and abrasion resistance. The end result was a system that provided: decorative, non-skid, abrasion resistance, corrosion protection, and fast turnaround!
