TC Fluid, Swanley , Kent

A 950 sq m concrete floor which had received a coat of floor paint. There were open joints with broken edges which as well as being a trip hazard to trolleys and staff also trapped dirt and inhibited house keeping.

TC Fluids Required a cost effective and hard wearing coating with the aim being to lift the presentation of the Engineering facility. It was important that the floor would last at least 5 years. We can confidently support the coating with our materials and workmanship guarantee.

Contrasting colours were used to create a floor layout and highlight borders.

The installation was completed over two extended weekend periods to minimise disruption.

Elgood Industrial Flooring’s Britdura 750 High-build solvent free Epoxy Floor Coating.

The floor has a built in fine slip resistant texture which is not sprinkled by hand and as such does not inhibit sweeping / house keeping.

Vacuum contained shot-blasting was used to prepare the floor in open areas with diamond grinding employed in more congested areas around machinery and racking.

Slate Grey for process areas and Dusty Blue for walkways. Yellow lines were used to highlight these. Forklift and Pedestrian Man signs were installed to warn and inform.

When the time comes or plant is relocated leaving a footprint behind, making good and/or re-coating areas can be completed with relative ease. Once the area has been cleaned with a scrubber dryer or similar machine, the coating’s good self bonding charateristics mean that we would be able to simply over-coat minimising both preparation and disruption.

Installation Programme: The installation was completed over two extended weekend periods to minimise disruption.
