Refurbishment in the lively nightlife district of Cologne's old town

Image

Salzgasse is a typical alley in the busy, historic old town. The joint material of the Salzgasse between Heumarkt and Rhine was to be renovated. As in almost every city, countless paved areas are in need of renovation and, due to the lack of joint closure, become dangerous stumbling blocks. Soiling of the joints, for example from cigarettes and broken glass, makes the paving, which is beautiful in itself, look very unsightly in the overall picture.

After intensive advice from ROMEX®, the city of Cologne decided on the renovation, which was carried out by a trained processing partner. Not only the city of Cologne, but also residents and local restaurants are very satisfied…

My personal, tiny contribution to making the world a little better. "

Storage and handling of resin based products during the cold season

The liquid components need to be stored frostfree. This includes the single bottle containers as well as the buckets that have resine/hardener components inside them. Filler material bags should be stored dryly.

Furthermore we recommend the following precautions:

  • Cold material (due to storage or transport) must be brought up to ambient temperature before application.
  • The required minimum values according to the technical specifications, regarding air (temperature), surface and air humidity, need to be adhered to. When working with synthetic resin paving joint mortars, then…

The liquid components need to be stored frostfree. This includes the single bottle containers as well as the buckets that have resine/hardener components inside them. Filler material bags should be stored dryly.

Furthermore we recommend the following precautions:

  • Cold material (due to storage or transport) must be brought up to ambient temperature before application.
  • The required minimum values according to the technical specifications, regarding air (temperature), surface and air humidity, need to be adhered to. When working with synthetic resin paving joint mortars, then the recommended ground temperature from the product information should be heeded.
  • In general the material should not only be stored frostfree, but also be transported frostfree, especially for self-collection clients, and depending on delivery area and temperature conditions, the transport company should use thermotransport (+6°C) if possible.
  • Using blow heaters during application of our floor coatings is not recommended. The airstream disturbs the hardening process and produces a lot of dust/dirt. Due to increased air movement, the water loss of watery products is dramatically shortened, which has a negative effect on hardening.
  • Last but not least we recommend ordering materials on time to ensure punctual delivery. In case of severe weather conditions such as frost and snow, hazardous materials transport is sometimes forbidden, meaning delays in delivery through no fault of our own.
