Application and conversion-specific criteria

Contrary to new constructions, stress reversal (occurance, change of intensity, discontinuation) needs to be addressed within following criteria.

  • Type of mechanical load (frequency, intensity, load direction, wearing)
  • Thermal load (duration, intensity, cycles)
  • Chemical load (contacting substances, intensity)
  • Anti-slip properties
  • Cleaning characteristics (decontaminability)
  • Aesthetic demands
  • Evenness, floor gradient, tolerances
  • Special requirements: electrostatic, physiological, structural, sealing properties
  • Other connections details

Concrete repair projects are a special challenge. Additionally to the actual repair works on concrete surface the reinforcement of the component or the construction can be achieved by structural alterations.
