- Then, with the acrylic floor covering, the coating process begins by paying attention to the details.
- The floor is covered in such a way that there is no gap from the top to the bottom.
- Provided that it is every 3 meters into the mold, pipe eyebolts to be used for wire mesh are placed.
- Within this border, 20 cm of which will remain in the soil, the area is first filled with large stones of 15 cm height and made very tight.
- On the compacted floor, an average of 15 cm of mixed stone dust with 50% stone dust is applied. During this process, 6-8/1000 slopes are given for each meter, both transversely and unilaterally. This inclination is applied in order to allow rain water to slide easily over the ground and to facilitate drying.
- While these processes are being carried out, the field is watered frequently and the ground is well settled in this way.
- It becomes ready for asphalting.
NOTE: The application of acrylic flooring may change because of the basis of surface. If the application is made for asphalt surface, it is ensured that the setting work of this surface is completed 14 days before and all oil, dirt, loosening or swelling layers on the surface are cleaned.
If the application is made for the concrete surface and it is difficult or impossible to supply asphalt in the area; In this case, concrete can be used. However, concrete can crack because it is less durable than asphalt.
NOTE 2: If the coating process is carried out in suitable weather conditions, the completion period of 1 court varies between 5 and 7 days on average. The main reason for the long duration is the waiting for the intermediate layers to dry. In other words, the number of courts to be completed in 7 days may increase. It’s all about weather conditions and rapid drying.
