Armor Shield Infused Tiles Used To Re-Floor Kyger Creek Power Station

Share Article

Specially formulated PVC tiles using Armor Garage's proprietary anti-stain compound known as Armor Shield were chosen to resurface the turbine room at the Kyger Creek power station located in Cheshire, Ohio.

The Kyger Creek coal fired power station, located in Cheshire, Ohio, is the latest proponent of Armor Garage's newly formulated PVC floor tiles. The operators of the Kyger Creek plant recently selected Armor Garage's newest flooring product, interlocking PVC tiles that are treated with the additive known as Armor Shield, to resurface the turbine room of their power plant.

Armor Garage has been working on the proprietary formula used in Armor Shield for the past four years. This chemical compound is injected into tiles while they are being molded which makes the compound effective throughout the entire tile. When treated with Armor Shield, tiles will have a glossy, slip-resistant surface that also helps to prevent stains, which is a big problem in coal fired power plants like the Kyger Creek facility. Tiles treated with Armor Shield are also self extinguishing and therefore virtually fireproof.    

In discussing the Kyger Creek contract, owner of Armor Garage, James Olympios, said, “Everyone at Armor Garage is happy and gratified when a customer recognizes the important differences that our products deliver by choosing us for a job like the Kyger Creek power plant." He then added, "Our proprietary Armor Shield anti-stain additive will make traditional tile coatings obsolete both from a cost and performance perspective.”

The Kyger Creek plant required approximately 45,000 square feet of Armor Garage PVC tiles, which took less than two weeks to install. Fast and easy installation of Armor Shield treated flooring is one of many reasons why this product was chosen for the Kyger Creek renovation. Another is that it also saved the operators of the plant a significant amount of money. Compared to other options, such as an epoxy floor, Armor Garage tiles are a quarter of the price. They also carry a lifetime guarantee. Epoxy floors have a lifespan of approximately 10 years.

As with all Armor Garage products, their Armor Shield treated PVC tiles have been thoroughly tested, made for heavy duty jobs and built to last a lifetime, which went a long way in influencing the decision of the Kyger Creek power plant management when they were searching for the right product to use when their turbine deck needed to be resurfaced.
