    Hello,

    Firstly what a fantastic forum. Thanks you've helped me out more than once already.

    I'm looking for some advice on the method and materials to create a hygienic wall/floor junction; between a concrete floor and a cement rendered wall.

    At the moment the junction is a standard 90 degree joint but I'd like to to make it an easy to clean concave joint.

    My question is how should I prepare the area, what should I render? the joint with and tips to do so.

    The bottom foot of the wall, joint, and floor will be treating with an epoxy seal.

    You generally dress a floor covering up the wall to form a skirting. I would think anything made from mortar would just break up. How about a sealing in a bead of upvc quadrant or similar? Is that what you mean??

    The upvc is a good idea but not ideal; the room is a wet room (old milking parlor) and I think it would be hell to try and get the quadrant to run with the changes in level. Also I would much prefer a concave solution to convex - am I not thinking right or would quadrant only allow a convex solution?
