The Kah Motor Co. Sdn. Bhd. facility in Jalan Ipoh is a pioneering car dealership that has offered 3S services under one roof for the past 40 years. Sites like this have been pivotal to Mitsubishi’s increasing vehicles sales in Malaysia, which last year were reported to be 14,184 units, the highest since 2005.
The existing epoxy finish in the service centre was peeling off as a result of poor workmanship and Kah Motor knew that it had to act fast in order to protect both its own high quality brand image and Mitsubishi’s.
With that in mind, Flowcrete Asia was called in to provide a new, stylish and robust flooring system. In order to prepare the substrate 2,100m2 of Flowcrete’s damp proof underlayment Flowcem was applied at a 2mm thickness in order to combat rising moisture vapour.
The service centre also benefitted from the installation of 2,100m2 of the solvent free, durable, high performance epoxy resin coating system Flowcoat HS in a striking light blue shade to bring the facility back up to the high standards synonymous with both Kah Motor and Mitsubishi.
The Flowcoat HS system is often used as a hard wearing coloured floor coating in areas such as service centres, factories, warehouses, plants and storerooms.
Flowcrete’s approved applicator encountered numerous obstacles during installation, such as the careful removal of the previous epoxy flooring system and the delivery of equipment such as the car lift before the flooring was completely finished.
The complete installation took just two weeks and the client was thrilled with the speedy turnaround and calibre of the work completed on its site.
