Flowfresh Protects In Food & Beverage Environments
- Product: Deckshield & K-Screed
- Market Sector: Residential
- Location: Mumbai, India
- Client: SD Corporation Imperial Towers
The twin 60-storey Imperial Towers Development in Mumbai is a
multi-million dollar project by SD Corporation. Located in the
south of the city and comprising 228 spacious apartments, the
property is billed as one of Mumbai's most expensive residential
addresses. When it came to specifying the building finishes, SD
Corporation wanted the very best in quality throughout, including
the car -park.
Spanning the first nine levels of the building, the car-park provides
space for up to 1,000 vehicles. After evaluation of various coating
systems, Flowcrete's polyurethane Deckshield system was chosen on account of
its superior performance characteristics and a long list of
international project references. Deckshield's hard-wearing, waterproof,
crack-bridging properties have been proven in some of the
harshest conditions around the world and it is one of the only
systems of its kind to be certified to the stringent American
Standards Testing specification ASTM C957. Another key attraction
for the client was the light-reflective properties of Deckshield which
create a brighter ambience and help reduce electricity consumption,
delivering significant cost savings.
Available in various formulations for use on exposed deck areas,
intermediate decks and ramps, Deckshield comes in a range of colours
enabling clear and safe demarcation of car-park zones.
To provide a sound substrate, Flowcrete's proprietary K-Screed was
installed first followed by the installation of some 35,000 square
metres of the Deckshield. With added strength and
durability, achieved due to its reduced water content, K-Screed
eliminates the cracking, curling and debonding that often occurs
with conventional sand/cement screeds.
