Because of the many advantages that epoxy floor paint offers, this is an ideal flooring solution for many types of situations.
Epoxy Flooring is Visually Appealing
When most people think of epoxy coatings, the first thing that comes to their minds is a garage or shop floor. With many new products and decorative finishes, epoxy flooring is now a well-known option for bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, finished basements and much more. Epoxy Floor Coatings are available in a range of colours and patterns to fit your specific style.
Providing an attractive flooring surface. The purpose of applying the epoxy coating may be decorative, functional, or both. The Show floor range which includes two top coats that leaves a luxurious medium sheen finish, is ideal for residential or commercial floors, in or outdoors and on either new or previously painted cement. Preferred areas include showrooms, restaurants, kitchens, patios, garages as well as light industrial floors.
Our epoxy floor coatings are available in a matt or gloss finish and comes in a variety of different colours.
Ease of Application of Epoxy on floors
A coating is a covering that is applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate.
Our epoxy floor coatings are easy and quick to apply. We have a large team of permanently employed industrial flooring specialists, all on-hand to carry out the vital applications required when installing industrial flooring systems to the highest industry standards. We apply three coats to get enough build for long term wear and durability.
Epoxy surfaces are easy to clean and smooth
Epoxy floors create an easy to clean, seamless surface. Our epoxy floor coating products dry to become durable, seamless surfaces that can easily be wiped free of dirt, dust, and debris. Because of this ability for easy cleaning, our epoxy floor coating services are ideal for showrooms, food, beverage, and pharmaceutical preparation and packaging plants.
Durability of Epoxy Floors
Resulting in a hard wearing and durable surface. Our epoxy floor coating products turn concrete floors into a seamless and durable, high performance surface that will last for years to come. Epoxy floor paint will create a long lasting, hard wearing, and durable surface for your commercial or industrial floors, because they protect the concrete from wear, chemical corrosion and chemical deterioration, combined with ease of cleaning and low maintenance.
Epoxy is resistant to diluted acids, alkalies, petroleum products, and condensation. Since it is both chemical and stain resistant, oil, brake fluids, anti-freeze, gasoline, and other caustic car chemicals can easily be wiped up without worry, even if it sits for a while.
Creating a chemically resistant surface. Epoxy floor coatings are a chemically resistant flooring option for manufacturing plants, warehouses, and industrial plants. Epoxy coatings are often used in factories where floors are subject to high impact, wear, abrasion and chemical attack. These floors have very good mechanical strength, and epoxy on concrete floors provide a seamless floor with heavy duty wear characteristics and the ability to perform in areas with forklift and heavy truck traffic.
Depending on the products you select, epoxy flooring can be a bit more expensive to install than ordinary flooring options. However, when you consider the resistance to cracking, staining, fading and abrasion, cost savings become obvious. By selecting an epoxy floor coating, you won’t bear the cost of replacing the carpets, tiles or linoleum, and you’ll eliminate the need for restoration chores like waxing and steam cleaning.
Whether you are turning your garage into a show piece for storage and cars or just want something to protect your floor for years to come, a good system such as Epoxy Flooring will last for years and give you one of the best returns on your investment.
Adhesion is based on physical and chemical interactions between the coating and the substrate. Poor adhesion equates to poor performance.
This is essentially the most important phase of the epoxy floor coating project. A well planned surface preparation will help secure a good bonding between the substrate and the coating system. Good surface preparation will remove latancy, curing compounds, contamination and give the surface profile. Vacuum clean the area before paint application starts.
Epoxy Floors – Surface Properties
New Concrete Floors – Maximum moisture content for coating concrete floors is 4%. The concrete normally needs 4 weeks to cure. All contamination on the surface will affect the bonding between the concrete and the floor coating system and have to be removed.
Old Uncoated Concrete Floors – Before working on an old, uncoated concrete you should check for contamination such as oil, grease and chemicals. Remove any contamination with a chemical degreaser
To successfully carry out the application of Epoxy Floor Coatings, it is necessary to use high quality equipment that is designed for this particular purpose.
