What is HTC ‘Superfloor’ By Quest?

HTC ‘SuperFloor’ by Quest is a flooring system designed to provide a long lasting, low maintenance and environmentally low impact floor surface. The process involves mechanically refining the concrete surface by removing the top layer and revealing the underlying, more durable layers so that we can grind or polish it to provide a matt or polished finish which will provide an easy to clean, environmentally friendly and hard wearing surface. This means it’s very suitable to areas that see high foot traffic and a lot of heavy machinery, such as industrial environments like warehouses or engineering facilities; but is also at home in retail, leisure and exhibition environments where an industrial feel might be desirable.

The concrete floor is cut with a variety of diamond abrasive grits, usually 3-8 depending on the gloss level desired. This polishing can be done wet or dry depending on the site situation. Benefits of dry grinding include easier clean-up since no slurry is created during the process.

A densifier is then applied once the concrete is opened up and in a condition to readily accept the chemical. The step at which the densifier is applied is determined by the person polishing the concrete. The densifier is allowed to dry and cure for the manufacturers recommended time, followed by one or more abrasive cuts, which will polish the floor to the desired gloss.

Here are some examples of the process:

Quest Use: FloorBridge®

Have you got issues with poor existing floor joints? If so, FloorBridge® installed by Quest is the solution. FloorBridge® is a unique joint reinstatement system. Made from a visco-plastic carbon fibre composite, FloorBridge® can be ground flat to the level of the adjacent floor ensuring the smoothest and possible transition across the joint, ensuring the safety of operatives across the floor.

Proven to be more robust than many other jointing systems, with a longer lifetime for any vehicles expected on the surface; FloorBridge® is an economical and ecological solution to joint problems within your floor slabs. The system is also a long lasting addition to your floor joints that will increase the lifespan of the surface; making it a cheaper option than replacing the whole floor in the event of irreparable damage to the old joints.

Main advantages include:

  • An investment protected by a warranty of up to twenty years.
  • Reduce maintenance costs of MHE
  • Prevents loss and damage to stock
  • Increased productivity
  • Helps to prevent back problems with drivers
  • Completely impact free
  • Prevents recurring damage to your floor joints
  • Reduced noise when trafficking the joint
  • Easy to keep clean

The system is easy to apply (approx. 12 hours) in all areas and environments without unnecessary disruption to production and operations; providing a perfect, everlasting solution for all kinds of joint problems within a busy industrial environment.
