Old Navy, New Concrete

- Project Profile
Retail flooring tends to hold a large responsibility. Not only does it have to be aesthetically appealing to the masses, but it has to be extremely durable, chemical and spill resistant, and able to withstand constant heavy foot traffic. Retail business owners also favor flooring that is easily maintained and easy to clean.
When Old Navy’s original specification for their flagship store in Napa, CA came back a little costly, our technical manager Bill England worked with QCA (Qualified Contractor Applicator) Lennova USA on flipping the specification and getting the cost down. They worked together to establish a Westcoat system that would be simple to maintain, extremely durable, and easy on the eyes.
The solution was the Level-It Polish System. This included EC-12 epoxy primer to aid in the adhesion of the level it cement, TC-26. After the cement was poured and cured, the polishing process begins. With the help of SC-21 Lithium Silicate concrete densifier, the cement is progressively ground down using a higher grit sand paper for each step. Once you reach 800 grit your polishing is complete, although you can achieve a stronger polish shine the higher you go. After vacuuming any remaining dust, you are ready for the SC-24 Polish Guard to help maintain and protect your fresh polished floors. The finished floors look great and are holding up better than we could have imagined for such a busy store front.
