A variety of UZIN products were used to renovate the flooring within the reception at Peterborough Regional College. The flooring contractor, Superior Finish Contracts was appointed to remove the old wood block flooring and install the new luxury vinyl tiles after a burst pipe flooded the reception. As the College provides education and training to over 10,000 students and businesses a year, it was extremely important that the new floor could withstand the heavy footfall. With many LVT manufacturers requiring at least a 25 N compressive strength smoothing compound it was also important that the correct products were used. Low strength smoothing compounds are susceptible to indentations that will mirror in the floor covering, especially if there is heavy traffic and trolley transportation

UZIN NC 150 smoothing compound has a high compressive strength of 25 N and produces a fantastic finish so was ideal for use in the College’s reception. The old wood block flooring was first removed by the College. Superior Finish Contracts then heavily scarified the subfloor before applying 2 coats of UZIN PE 414 DPM, followed by a coat of fine sand. UZIN Deep Fill was then used to infill these areas, followed by UZIN PE 360 primer and a finishing coat of UZIN NC 150. The LVT flooring was then installed with UZIN KE 2000 S, a low emission pressure sensitive adhesive. Carpet tile were also installed in the entrance using UZIN U 2100 tackifier. The floor was exceptional finished by Superior Finish Contracts and by using a UZIN system, Peterborough Regional College will benefit from a more durable floor which can tolerate the large amount of foot traffic.
