Industrial Epoxy Solid Color System
Solid Colour is an Epoxy coating system which will give you many options from a smooth surface and therefore easy to clean to a slip resistant coating which will have a rough surface.
Industrial epoxy flooring is a robust and versatile flooring solution designed to meet the demanding conditions of industrial environments. This type of flooring system involves the application of epoxy resins onto concrete substrates, creating a durable, seamless, and chemically resistant surface.
- Concrete Assessment: The process begins with a thorough evaluation of the existing concrete substrate. Any cracks, defects, or contaminants are addressed through surface cleaning, repairs, and sometimes mechanical treatments like shot blasting or grinding.
- Epoxy Primer: A high-quality epoxy primer is applied to the prepared surface. The primer enhances adhesion, promoting a strong bond between the epoxy system and the concrete substrate. It also helps to prevent outgassing and ensures a consistent base for subsequent layers.
Body Coat Application
- Epoxy Body Coat: The primary layer is the epoxy body coat, which provides the core attributes of durability, chemical resistance, and impact resistance. This layer is often fortified with various additives for specific performance characteristics, such as resistance to abrasion, thermal shock, or heavy loads.
- Anti-Slip Aggregates: Depending on the industrial setting, anti-slip aggregates like quartz crystals or aluminum oxide may be incorporated into the epoxy coating to enhance traction and safety, especially in areas prone to spills or wet conditions.
- Color Pigments: Industrial epoxy flooring is available in a range of colors, allowing customization to match corporate branding, zoning, or safety markings.
Top Coat Application
- Clear Epoxy or Polyurethane Top Coat: A clear top coat is applied over the body coat to provide additional protection. This top layer enhances the flooring’s resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and UV exposure, extending the lifespan of the epoxy system. It can also contribute to a glossy finish.
Benefits of Industrial Epoxy Flooring
- Durability: Industrial epoxy flooring is highly durable and can withstand heavy machinery, forklift traffic, and other industrial stresses.
- Chemical Resistance: The epoxy coating provides resistance to chemicals, oils, solvents, and other substances commonly found in industrial settings.
- Easy Maintenance: The seamless and non-porous surface is easy to clean, promoting a hygienic and efficient workspace.
- Safety: With optional anti-slip properties, industrial epoxy flooring enhances safety in areas prone to spills or wet conditions.
- Customization: Industrial epoxy flooring offers flexibility in terms of colors and designs, allowing customization to meet specific aesthetic and functional requirements.
