Qualidur HP (High Performance) offers all the benefits of Qualidur with added abrasion resistance and anti-static properties. Itâs excellent for logistics and medium-duty manufacturing.
- Flat floors in logistics and distribution centres
- Food processing factories
- Medium-duty industrial floors
- Commercial retail outlets
Qualidur HP is a non-metallic dry-shake concrete finish for industrialÂ floors. It contains specially shaped and graded mineral aggregates, cement, mixing additives and colour pigments, blended into a powder. It is sprinkled on the top of fresh concrete, or pre-mixed with water and poured on as a slurry. It cures to create a long-lasting, abrasive resistant coating which protects the slab beneath.
Fibre suppressant for SFRC
Qualidur HP can be used as a surface fibre suppressant for steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) floors, as it improves the quality and smoothness of the floor. If Qualidur HP is being used primarily as a fibre suppressant, we recommend a wet-on-wet (fresh-on-fresh) application, as the thicker topping will provide a better fibre suppression. Please refer to our FAQ on wet-on-wet application to learn more. Examples of both applications are shown in the videos at the end of this page.
Qualidur HP is a mineral-based surface hardener with excellent abrasion resistance. In technical abrasion tests (the Boehm test) the floorâs surface wore by only 3cm3 per 50cm2 (the result for an uncoated floor was 9cm3 per 50cm2).
Oil resistant flooring
Qualidur HP aids the floorâs resistance to oils and hydrocarbons, so it is a good choice for workshops and manufacturing facilities where oil or petrol spillages may occur. If you are mainly choosing Qualidur HP for this reason, we recommend you discuss the application first with our technical advisers.
Static dissipative flooring
Qualitop HP dissipates static, helping to make the building more comfortable for people, and safer for equipment.
Attractive appearance â no dust, no rust
Qualidur HP contains no metal particles, which means it requires no special coating to prevent rusting. It is easy to clean and resists dust infiltration.
Qualidur HP is naturally light reflective. Using a paler coloured surface hardener can particularly help to brighten a buildingâs interior and increase the light reflectivity. This can help reduce the lighting requirements for the building, and thus contribute to energy efficiency.
Cost-effective coloured concrete floors
Using Qualidur HP dry-shake concrete finishÂ easily adds colour to a concrete floor, without using coloured concrete or floor paint. It is available in our full range of standard colours, and special colours can also be created.
