300 sq mtrs of 3mm SL epoxy resin screed, were laid at a Compressor Manufacturers in Bicester.
A large Compressor Manufacturer contacted Protective Surface Coatings Ltd to refurbish their production. The existing epoxy resin coatings were not giving them a long term solution and they were constantly upgrading them every few years. The brief was for a hard wearing, durable floor surface to withstand high levels of folk lift traffic and usage and would provide an aesthetically pleasing floor.
Protective Surface Coatings Ltd specified a Resdev Pumaflow 3mm SL epoxy resin screed. Epoxy resin self-levelling screeds are ideal for industrial and commercial locations where a durable, hygienic dust free environment is important e.g. laboratories, hospital clean rooms, electronics assembly plants, showrooms and light industrial plants.
Epoxy SL screeds are categorised by FeRFA as Type 5 (2-3mm thick) and recommends them for regular foot traffic, frequent forklift traffic and occasional hard plastic wheeled trolleys. In Light to Medium duty working environments the BS indicates a typical life expectancy of 6-10 years for this type of floor topping.
All the floors were heavily shot-blasted to remove the existing resin coatings and all areas were swept and vacuumed cleaned and all expansion joints were re-cut and repaired using epoxy mortar compound. Two coats epoxy resin primer were then laid to the total floor area.
A 3mm SL epoxy resin screed, mid grey was laid and safety red and blue were also laid to designate the different machine areas.
The project was completed in 5 days, on time and in budget, providing the client with an appealing, durable, hard wearing surface that will be maintenance free and can be used for many years to come.
Mr Leon Chesterman, Workshop Manager said, “ We are so happy with the new resin screed, it looks amazing and has really improved our factory. Protective Surface Coatings were very helpful and provided us with an excellent floor at a very fair price.”
The total project took 7 days to complete, was on time and on budget and provided the food factory with a very hard wearing floor, that provided excellent slip resistance in the wet. The resin screed is seamless and easy to clean and the perfect floor for the food industry.
