Tate Modern Floor Painting

Anglia Decor Ltd. Painting contractors London. Tate Modern were carrying out a new floor project to their ground floor Turbine Hall, an area of 3200m2. The project involved their team fitting plastic floor tiles to the area followed by a primer coat and 2 coats of a heat reactive Thermochromic paint. When people touch the floor it will react to the body heat and change colour. Some areas have an artwork sprayed in the Thermochromic paint, that will be revealed once it’s touched.

Our task was to apply a Polyaspartic protective coating to the 3200m2 floor and a matt protective coating to smaller 400m2 section to protect the artwork underneath. Our team carried out the project in a week and completed on schedule. We needed to work around the other operatives and artists who were applying base coats and heat reactive coatings. The Polyaspartic coating is a very quick curing coating with a high gloss finish. It resists scratching well and this version is clear with an anti slip additive. The pot life is only 20-30 minutes, once that time is up the coating will become much thicker and harder to apply. It is important to keep a wet edge and complete whole areas once started.

The matt protective coating was a water based epoxy, when applied it is white in colour then dries clear withing a few hours. The team at Tate Modern wanted an organic faded edge to this section, not a straight edge.
