Non-crack floors a smoothie to pigs

REDUCE infections in pigs caused by sores by treating concrete floors with a screed of Instapruf which will not crack or peel, says David Ball Group.

It says that the product can cope with the weight of livestock while being resistant to acid, alkali and hot water. It is also said to provide a non-slip surface.

The company adds that Instapruf contains high quality graded aggregates, cements, "workability aids" and strength enhancers. It cures and is ready for use in 24 hours.

Instapruf costs from £45/m sq including laying, depending on the condition of surface treated (01954-780687, fax 01954-782912).
