Guide to floor painting
New concrete: it needs time for excess moisture to dissipate 4-6 weeks. Use a water permeable floor paint.
Old concrete: best to diamond grind to prepare then vac and apply 2 coats of a high build epoxy resin like SF41.
Wood floors: can be painted,hire a floor sander to prepare.
Tiled floors: ceramic tiles can be overpainted, diamond grind first. Plastic tiles are best removed, then grind off adhesive and paint.

Resin staircases are a cost effective flooring solution. Benefits include being a hygienic surface that is easy to clean and maintain.
The coating can be made anti slip if required and we are able to install safety step edges.
Large staircases can be completed quickly to minimise downtime.
We are also able to remove existing carper and grind back adhesive to refurbish old staircases.
Concrete sealing offers a low cost option for bare concrete surfaces. Some concrete floors can be very powdery and with frequent fork lift traffic create dust in the workplace. This can be a problem for staff as concrete dust is very hazardous to health. Dustproofer and concrete hardener can be spray applied and helps improve the air quality. It comes in water and solvent based versions.
Our team would usually diamond grind the floor then spray apply 2 coats of dustproofer, can be fitting into a weekend to minimise distrubance to your business.
Pedestrian walkways help meet HSE guidelines by separating pedestrian and vehicle traffic. We are also able to carry out zebra crossings to denote a hazardous area at traffic junctions and give pedestrians the right of way. Line marking can help increase efficiency and organisation.
Pedestrian walkways work best in 2 contrast colours, the yellow edging is not required and this reduces the cost of the flooring project.
Anglia Decor offer car park resin flooring, line marking and crosshatching. We are also able to carry out car park painting and spraying of walls and ceilings. Our high build resin floors will stand up to repeated vehicle traffic and can be made anti slip if required. Bare concrete car park floors can create lots of dust and are difficult to clean.

Thorough preparation of your floor is the crucial part of the project that provides a longer lasting finished job and avoids flaking, debonding and other issues.
Power floated, smooth concrete floors are often found in warehouses and industrial units. Floor coatings do not adhere well to smooth surfaces. To overcome this problem we either diamond grind or shot blast (vacu-blast) the smooth concrete prior to painting.
Our diamond grinders are attached to industrial vacuums to make the process virtually dust free. We are also able to remove old defective coatings, prior to our floor painting team applying the new epoxy resin coating.

Epoxy resin floors are a modern and cost effective choice for office floors. We recently completed a resin floor at the well-known online design company, Dezeen’s office in London
Print & packaging Industry.
High performance flooring systems are needed to cope with the demands placed on floors in the print industry. With machinery running 24/7 it is crucial again to minimise downtime and complete flooring projects quickly. Keeping dust levels to a minimum and improving air quality will see improved lifespans and less downtime for print machinery.
Our experience in floor preparation will remove grease, old paint & surface contamination. We then carry out repairs to uneven surfaces using epoxy repair mortar, to provide level and even floor surfaces that are traffic safe.

If you just paint a floor without preparation it will probably only last a few weeks or months before flaking.
You will then need to touch up flaking areas or remove the paint and start again.
It is advised to prepare the floor by diamond grinding. Hire a machine or find a specialist. Also can acid etch bare concrete.
Solvent free & water based resin coatings are low odour that will not create a smell. Solvent based floor paints create a smell during installation.
All floor paints are self priming. That said, it can be thinned by solvent, white spirit or water depending on the type of paint. This will help adhesion on the first coat.
A high build solvent free resin coating is the most durable type of floor paint. A 2 coat roller applied system will meet industrial usage and give a dry film thickness of 400 microns, 7 times thicker than standard paint.
The same coating can be applied at 2-3mm thick for even more durability.
Check Resdev Pumatect.
Once cured floor paint is fully washable. Small areas can be mopped and larger areas can be cleaned using a scrubber dryer.
