01/20/2005
DANVERS, MA — Floor Savers floor maintenance and repair products from Devcon are all-purpose concrete patching compounds that can be easily applied by plant maintenance personnel. With excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates, they cure at room temperature and achieve compressive strengths of 8000-9000 psi, over three times the typical strength of concrete. Easily trowelable to a nonporous finish, these durable compounds provide excellent resistance to water, oils, solvents, and alkalis and are acceptable for use in meat and poultry plants. Their nonsagging formulation will not run or drip when used on vertical or overhead applications.
