There is a huge range of standard formulations and manufactures’ proprietary formulations on the market. At Quantum Site Services we believe that we understand the nature and functionality of most if not all of them. In our opinion this is the only way to approach our clients with well thought-out options for discussion.
Our aim in all cases is to optimize expenditure. We will always try and reduce client costs but we are not afraid to point out where over-optimistic expectations in either budget cuts or specification downgrading will lead, we always make every effort to emphasise this point, particularly if some form of guarantee is required.
Correct floor preparation is of paramount importance.
“Dust-free” surface preparation of concrete floors, prior to the application of coatings or screeds is the industry standard. With modern dust extraction systems, with pulse filter cleaning, there is no need for any contamination of dust in the working environment. Quantum Site Services uses the most modern dust extraction systems available connected to our shot blasters, scrabblers, and diamond grinders. The quickest and most economical concrete preparation is by fully enclosed, dust-free shot blasting. By adjusting the speed of travel and size of shot the correct profile of the concrete for most types of coatings, paints and screed can be achieved
Planners using Tungsten Carbide Tipped flails or picks can give a coarser profile suitable for epoxy screeds and pumped screeds, by giving a much coarser texture and better mechanical key. Captivated grinders can be used in their own right to smooth out irregularities or for toning down the ridges caused by scabbling. We also use this equipment to achieve tight flatness tolerances.
As you can now see, a combination of all systems can be or may have to be used for any one floor. To facilitate this all three machines may have to be considered. Coupled with our own on board generators, Quantum Site Services have tackled most problems to floors.

For large scaled and/or high-specification flooring areas there is often a need for a high tolerance survey to be carried out. Sometimes this can look like just further expense, but at Quantum Site Services we can confirm what’s needed and explain why.
