The aviation industry will require moisture mitigation testing to be done on new concrete surfaces prior to any floor covering installations. Zenith Painting and Coatings, a Denver based professional floor coating company, can test and handle any moisture issues by performing the proper testing and offer professional moisture mitigation control coating solutions to get your project back on track.
The aviation and aerospace industry demands high standards from aesthetics to durability and safety. Installing proper flooring in aviation and aerospace operations can make all the difference in the overall success of everyday operations.
Aviation and Aerospace Industry Requirements
- Skid resistance
- Superior chemical resistance
- Maximum abrasion resistance to withstand heavy traffic
- Compressive strength to bear the weight of aircraft
- Static control in the presence of sensitive avionics
Variety of Uses and Operations
- Aircraft maintenance and repair hangards
- Avionics storage and installation locations
- Aerospace manufacturing and assembly facilities
- Concourses and public spaces
Surface Preparation – Concrete
Concrete surfaces shall be abrasive blasted to remove all surface contaminants and laitance. After the initial preparation has been completed, we inspect the concrete for bug holes, voids, fins and other imperfections. Excessive surface profile may require a body coat prior to system application. Protrusions shall be ground smooth while voids shall be filled with a polymer filler.
ASTM F2170 – 17: Standard test method for determining relative humidity in concrete floor slabs using In-Situ Probes.
ASTM E136: This fire-test-response test method covers the determination under specified laboratory conditions of combustion characteristic of building materials.
ASTM D523: This test method covers the measurement of the specular gloss of nonmetallic specimens for glossmeter geometries of 60, 20, and 85 degrees.
ASTM C90: This specification covers hollow and solid concrete masonry units made from hydraulic cement, water, and mineral aggregates with or without the inclusion of other materials. There are three classes of concrete masonry units: Normal Weight, Medium Weight, and Lightweight. These units are suitable for both load-bearing and non-load bearing applications.
ASTM E84: This test method is intended to provide only comparative measurements of surface flame spread and smoke density measurements with that of select grade red oak and fiber-cement board surfaces under the specific fire exposure conditions described herein.
