Pharma Distribution Center

Customer: An International Pharmaceutical Company’s Distribution Center
Location: Indiana
Application: A 4.76 mm heavy duty paint flake polyurethane flooring system

Product: StorFloor®

Benefits Provided:

  • Anti-Microbial Engineered
  • Withstands High Moisture Vapor Transmission
  • Chemical Resistant
  • Skid and Abrasion Resistant

Pre-installation Evaluation:

The existing floor throughout the 70,000 sq. ft. distribution facility needed to be replaced to maximize product and worker safety.

Project Challenge:

The existing flooring had failed throughout the facility and distribution had to continue during installation of the new StorFloor® without any interruptions.

Cornerstone Solution and Process:

The Cornerstone installation team first removed several layers of failed flooring products laid by other companies. The substrate was then prepared by mechanical preparation utilizing HEPA filtration until an appropriate profile was evident. All excess dust, curing agents, and contaminants were removed before installation. The substrate was leveled to ensure an even distribution of the new flooring system.

Once the substrate was leveled and ready for application, the installers laid down a hybrid polyurethane MVT primer and added a mortar mix  that was troweled to 1/4″ thickness. A grout coat was then added and paint flakes were broadcast. The Cornerstone team sanded to achieve the desired finish on the StorFloor® flooring system. A final layer of grout coat and topcoat were added to protect the floor from heavy impact and abrasions.

Finished Project

The finished Cornerstone StorFloor® provided a flooring system that guards against deterioration from both natural and chemical agents and can withstand heavy traffic from forklifts and all warehouse and distribution implements. The flooring system included UV stability and light reflection to save energy and maintenance expenses.
