Automotive, garages and car parks

The challenge

Areas frequented by vehicles pose a different type of challenge. Reactive resin coatings are ideal for this purpose due to their trafficability and load-bearing capacity. However, buildings and especially concrete also must be protected from the ingress of chemicals. In order to be resistant against de-icing salt, carbon dioxide, water, glycols, battery acid or exhaust gases, the coating systems themselves must act as surface protection. When exposed to mechanical stress, flexible coating systems prevent the formation of cracks, and offer permanent preservation for concrete surfaces. Multi-storey car parks have to withstand large temperature fluctuations and vibrations caused by traffic, so cracks must be avoided under all conditions. In workshops, surfaces must be resistant to abrasion and impacts, impermeable to water and have a good chemical resistance. Floors in such areas are subject to the guidelines of the German Committee for Reinforced Concrete (DAfStb) on the “Protection and repair of concrete components”.

The solution

For floor coverings and coatings in underground or multi-storey car parks, we offer and recommend systems tested in accordance with the guidelines of the German Committee for Reinforced Concrete (DAfStb) on the “Protection and repair of concrete components” (RiLi-SIB). The coating systems are certified according to a comprehensive catalogue of requirements. Besides abrasion resistance, impact strength, antislip performance and low flammability, the test criteria also include crack bridging, water absorption and carbon dioxide impermeability. Flooring systems in such areas must offer economical solutions with minimal downtime.

Car parks, parking decks and underground parking lots

Depending on the requirements, the surface protection systems OS 8 or OS 11 are used for the coating of multi-storey car parks, parking decks and underground parking areas. There are a couple of additional variants which might be required for technical reasons. Among the KLB systems in this category, you will find suitable coatings for your next multi-storey car park or parking deck.

Car exhibitions
Car exhibitions

Presentations of motor vehicles need attractive showrooms. Therefore, a coherent overall concept for the exhibition space is essential. A visually appealing floor design catches the eye and supports the product presentation. The KLB systems include a large variety of decorative floor coverings for car sales areas.

Garages in private use
Garages in private use

The coatings used for private garages have similar requirements on reactive resin floors as those for multi-storey car parks. They have to be able to cope with mechanical loads and be resistant to chemicals, especially to the substances emitted by motor vehicles, as well as to de-icing salt and water. Further individual demands, often imposed by the building owner, can be met in principle such as a good slip-resistance. This category includes KLB systems combining all these properties.

Manufacturing and production
Manufacturing and production

Vehicle manufacturing places very different requirements on a floor covering. The modern automotive industry requires technically appropriate floorings that also meet high visual demands. The coverings must be mechanically robust, wear-resistant, cleanable and often electrically conductive. In renovation projects, high ground coverage rates are necessary to ensure quick processing so that downtime can be kept to a minimum. Here you will find KLB systems for different mechanical loads and requirements.

Car workshops
Car workshops

Car workshops require very robust floor coverings. Workspaces can be of different types: some require extremely resilient coatings if, for example, impact loads from falling parts or strong mechanical stresses are likely to occur. But good chemical resistance is also necessary, if petrol, oil, hydraulic fluids, etc. come into contact with the floor during installation. For test stations, other properties such as cleanliness, appearance and electrical conductivity can be crucial. Depending on their purpose, workshops must also be suitably slip-resistant. KLB offers an appropriate floor covering for every requirement.

Outdoor parking spaces
Outdoor parking spaces

In addition to technical properties such as robustness and mechanical resistance, exterior surfaces also need other important characteristics. Flooring in outdoor areas are constantly exposed to the elements: wind, weather, temperature fluctuations and UV light require a specific approach. Here you can find some coating systems suitable for outdoor use that are designed to meet these special requirements.
