Addressing the Moisture Vapour Resistance Required by Park Ten Surgical Center
When Park Ten Surgical Center contacted Flowcrete North America, they were looking for a long term solution for a major building defect that was affecting their outpatient surgery facility services. A severe moisture
problem, originated in part by the vinyl tile (VCT) installed throughout the facility, caused a microbial
generation issue that needed to be corrected immediately.
Flowcrete North America and Prepco Flooring, LLC. created a flooring solution, specifically designed to tackle Park Ten’s problems.
7,000 sq ft of Flowfresh SLB with flakes, a self-leveling and chemical resistant system, were installed in the facility’s hallways and surgery rooms. Like any Flowcrete’s Flowfresh products, Flowfresh SLB contains Polygiene®, an antimicrobial additive that reduces the generation of bacterialpopulation on the surface of the floorby up to 99%, remaining active 24hours a day, 7 days a week, during thefloor’s life time.
In addition, Flowfresh SLB offers excellent resistance to moisture vapor transmission (MVT), eliminating the passage of water vapour to the surface, avoiding delaminating of the floor system.
The system was coated and sealed with Peran STC and Flowseal UV, high solids products, with low odour and UV stables, that provide chemical and abrasion resistance to the floor system. These products are ideal for areas where decorative finishes and improved light stability are desired.
Thanks to past and similar successful project experiences, Flowcrete North America and Prepco Flooring, LLC. delivered an antimicrobial, seamless and decorative flooring system, addressing the moisture vapour resistance required by Park Ten Surgical Center. This offers “…the highest quality of patient care in a comfortable, convenient environment.”
