Is it possible to repair a concrete floor in a cold storage warehouse?

Some common issues that may need to be repaired on a freezer floor include cracks, chips, or holes in the surface. Here are some steps you can follow to repair a freezer floor:

  1. Clean the area: Remove any debris or ice from the damaged area and clean the floor thoroughly.

  3. Dry the surface as best as possible -- this is key for the product curing properly
  4. Apply the repair material: Choose a repair material that is suitable for use in a freezer, such as an epoxy or a concrete patching compound. We offer freezer floor repair material such as Arctic Crete 144  as well as cold storage floor repair such as Cooler Crete 145
