Keeping your plant floors and slabs in good condition is critical to keeping your operation humming. Cracks and potholes in slabs can cause extensive damage to your lifts and other equipment. This may leading to high maintenance costs and shortened life of some very expensive equipment. Uneven or sloped areas can also prevent automated lifts from operating at all. These lifts have built in safety sensors that shut them down if it detects irregularities in the level of the chassis. This could completely shut down your ability to move finished products or raw materials.

Most plant and mill maintenance personnel are focused on the process systems and keeping them running at high efficiency. After all, that’s the heart of the production process. It’s easy to forget the role of the plant or mill infrastructure. It is always in the background doing the heavy lifting of support, shelter, load transfer, waste handling and yes, traffic bearing.

“We need to fill some holes, but we can’t take those critical areas out of service to do it.”

Most of us have a sense that the slabs we walk and drive on are concrete so they must need to be repaired or replaced with concrete. However, how is that even possible when it takes days or even weeks to remove conventional concrete and replace it. The truth is, there are many innovative materials designed to restore your slabs to their original design and allow for those areas to be back in service fast. We have put together these charts as a reference for you. They should help you find the best material to meet your time constraints.
