Epoxy resin flooring contractors – Types of coatings:
Solvent based epoxy resin flooring, a 2-3 coat system providing a dry film thickness of 200-300 microns. This coating is suitable for light / medium duty usage. Available in most ral colours and standard or anti slip finish.
Solvent free resin flooring. Also a 2-3 coat system, providing a dry film thickness of 300-600 microns. This coating is more durable than a solvent based system and is suitable for medium-heavy duty usage.
Water Permeable coatings, for new concrete floors with high moisture content a water permeable epoxy floor coating is most suited. This allows excess moisture in the concrete to escape. The coating gives a dry film thickness of around 200 microns for 2 coats.
Polyaspartic fast cure floor coatings. This type of floor coating is suited to projects that require fast turnaround. Polyaspartic coatings can reach full cure in 6 hours. They are also well suited to cold room floors where low temperatures can delay cure times of other epoxy resin coatings.
Polyurethane, most commonly used as a top coat to give U.V. protection and increased resistance from scratches. Comes in clear or tinted variations and typically 100 micron thickness.
Case Study: 1700m2 industrial floor
A team of Anglia Decor’s epoxy resin flooring contractors carrying out dust free preparation to a 1700m2 floor at Hayes. Most industrial floors are power floated concrete, very smooth giving poor adhesion for epoxy resin floor coatings. The first phase of the work is to prepare the floor by diamond grinding to remove the top layer of concrete and expose the aggregate in the concrete. This is what the coating adheres to and ensures a long lasting floor coating.
If the floor has an existing blistering and flaking coating we first remove this using PCD tools attached to the grinders.
Once this step is complete the concrete needs diamond grinding as described above. Some dust is left on the surface after preparation, this needs to be removed by industrial vacuum as it reduces the adhesion of the paint to the concrete and reduces lifespan of the floor coating. This industrial unitwas to be a HGV MOT station and workshop, needed frequent truck traffic. The specification for the job was 1 coat of Barrier coat to seal the floor followed by 2 coats of solvent free resin- Epocoat HB. This gave an overall dry film thickness of 600 microns and good protection from chemical spills and heavy trucking.
