By a long way the most popular floor coating systems applied by Protective Surface Coatings Ltd are high build epoxy resin coatings. They have a dry film thickness of 0.4-0.5mm. This equates to 12-14 coats of single pack floor paint.
Superior physical and chemical resistance
Epoxy resin compared to basic floor paints exhibit far superior physical and chemical resistance properties. Offered in a wide range of gloss colours, high build epoxy resins are easy to clean and demonstrate excellent wear resistance.
High build epoxy floor coatings are supremely suited for use in light engineering, car workshops, manufacturing, paper, print and packaging industries.
Recommended for regular foot traffic
FeRFA gives these a category of Type 3 and recommends them for regular foot traffic, occasional hard plastic wheeled trolleys, and frequent forklift traffic. British Standard also indicates a predicted lifespan of 2-5 years for this type of floor coating.
You should also consider Anti-slip versions in areas where a slip hazard may arise from operational spillages, water ingress, or debris that may land on the floor.
Epoxy Resin Coatings Case Study
A leading car component manufacturer in Birmingham recently extended their factory. They contacted Protective Surface Coatings and asked them to provide a seamless, cost effective, high gloss attractive floor.
Protective Surface Coatings proposed a three coat, high build, epoxy resin flooring system in a mid grey colour. The total area was first shotblasted and all damaged concrete and cracks were repaired. Once the floor was vacuum-cleaned, three coats of epoxy resin were then laid, giving the client an attractive, seamless, easy to clean floor.
