About this Project

Goodman Fielder wanted a superior concrete re-surfacing under an outdoor tank storage area of approx 200sqm which required upgrading at their East Tamaki manufacturing plant. The existing floor was 20 years old and had deteriorated considerably. The challenge for Topcoat was to clean and repair the floor to exacting standards – without causing any disruption to Goodman Fielder’s continuing production schedule.


The solution was UCRETE® DP, a unique heavy-duty polyurethane resin technology, supplied by chemical company BASF. UCRETE® DP is specifically developed for the food and beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, and is used in many such facilities worldwide.


Once on site, the first step for Topcoat was to thoroughly clean and de-grease the existing concrete. This was a 5-step process taking ten days, which involved two rounds of thorough steam cleaning processes and grinding; as well as purging in-ground oil contaminants with a product called DensiProof. There was also delaminated broken concrete on the bund floor that had deteriorated after continual fat and hot water contamination. These areas were cut out and replaced with a BASF Concresive Epoxy Mortar. Then it was all systems go to lay the Ucrete DP9. One of the challenges of the job was that it was not an open area, and the Ucrete had to be finished neatly around the tank plinths. To ensure a quality finish, the Topcoat team fitted steel channels in order to create neat edges around the existing drains.


Goodman Fielder already had an established relationship with Topcoat, and Steve Cripps says they were confident the work would be of a high standard and the can-do attitude of the Topcoat team was also appreciated in what could have been a difficult job.

We were very happy with the work Topcoat had done for us previously. Some suppliers will come to you with a list of issues – but Topcoat work around any problems and come up with solutions themselves. The new surface is a vast improvement on what we had previously. We’ve now got a floor that’s purpose-designed for our industry and that meets all industry standards.
