SELF-INSTALL has always been an option, and we have provided a Supply Only service to many clients over the years.
With the arrival of COVID19, for reasons of distancing, isolating, convenience and cost, we are pleased to confirm that we will be continuing to offer this service and are opening it up to those who have received our installation service in the past and new industrial customers.
THE PRODUCTS that we supply are the same that we manufacture and install for our clients.
GUIDANCE & ADVICE is provided to our clients from the initial enquiry. We seek to establish the client’s objectives and to advise accordingly.
All of our team have extensive knowledge in the application of the product and are on hand to run through the practical aspects of installing high performance floor coatings.
You can take confidence from the fact that we have specialised in the manufacture and installation of industrial floors for many years and will give an honest assessment as to the suitability of our product for you.
You will at all times be talking to someone who is an experienced floor layer himself.
SITE VISITS & EMPLOYEE TRAINING can be provided as part of the overall service.
DELIVERY is by our own vehicles or a designated vehicle. We do not use carriers.
We have a stock colour range of practical colours for industrial environments.
White, yellow and red are available for line markings.
Examples of the colours can be found on our Case Studies Page.
For larger projects we can supplement our in-house colours with specific BS and RAL codes.
SLIP RESISTANT INDUSTRIAL FINISH
We can provide aggregates to produce a slip resistant texture. The most suitable grade is determined by your conditions. Our most popular grade is the fine slip resistant finish which is a 70 grade Alumium Oxide, ideal for a broad reach of industrial workplaces. The light texture provides both a pleasing appearance and sufficient purchase for most dry industrial uses without inhibiting cleaning / house keeping.
GUIDE TO SELF INSTALLING.
The floor should be clean , dry and sound. Contamination such as dirt, dust and oil must be removed.
Epoxy floor coatings adhere best to a lightly textured surface. This is best achieved by vacuum contained industrial shot-blasting. Vacuum contained diamond grinding can also be used. Where diamond grinding is used, we recommend that our clear solvent free Epoxy Primer Coat is applied to optimize the adhesion.
The heavier the traffic, the more important it is to achieve a good physical key.
Always use a trial area to prove that your preparation is adequate and that the coating will take to the concrete.
Always mix complete units. The ratio of resin to curing agent is critical. Mix with an electric drill fitted with a paddle.
Mix one unit at a time. Do not mix more than you can apply in the pot-life of the product. Once mixed, depending on the ambient temperature, you have 15-20 minutes to apply each unit of coating.
We recommend using a medium nylon roller and a paint tray.
Two coats will always produce a better finish than a single coat.
The floor should be ready for light traffic 12-24 hours and normal traffic in 24-36 hours.
Overalls, nitrile gloves and eye protection should be worn.
Good ventilation is important.
