Sikafloor® Morritex Hangar System at Spinks Airport
T.W. Hicks is proud to share another project we recently completed. Spinks Airport hired T.W. Hicks to install new flooring in the AngMar Corporate Hangar and the product chosen for this 8 day project was the Sikafloor® Morritex Hangar System which is manufactured by Sika USA. The areas completed were the Hanger Bay and Shops.
Sikafloor® Morritex Hangar System is a monolithic, solid color flooring system and offers chemical resistance which is why it is perfect for airport hangars and maintenance facilities. The Morritex Hangar System offers a high resistance to aviation fluids such as Jet-A and Skydrol. Given the prevalence of such aviation fluids in the AngMar Corporate Hangar, this flooring system was much needed.
Our team was eager to get to work on the 17,048 square foot space. Before the installation of the Sikafloor® Morritex Hangar System could begin, we had to mechanically shot blast the existing concrete floor with electric shot blast machines which were attached to HEPA filtered dust collection units.
Applying Sikafloor® Morritex Hangar System
For this project, the Primer used was Sikafloor® 161, 100% solids epoxy, applied at 900 square feet per kit. Next came the Neat Coat of which we used Sikafloor 264P, 100% solids epoxy, applied at 600 square feet per kit. The first Seal Coat was the Sikafloor 340P, chemical resistant, aliphatic urethane, applied at 1,100 square feet per kit and the second Seal Coat was the Sikafloor 340P, chemical resistant, aliphatic urethane, applied at 1,100 square feet per kit. The Mil Thickness for this flooring system was 30 and the color was Light Gray. We wrapped up the project with a High Gloss finish.
The finished product turned out beautiful and we enjoyed working with AngMar. We are happy to report that AngMar was just as pleased. Director of Construction Operations Todd Dennis shared this sentiment with us: "T.W. Hicks just completed an aircraft hangar for AngMar Aviation in March 2018. Their commitment to quality customer service is outstanding. From the general labor force to the project manager and office staff, all are great to work with. They will definitely be my contractor of choice on upcoming projects."
