Epoxy Flooring Melbourne
What is epoxy – epoxy flooring?
Epoxy flooring is a coating that is formed from two different chemicals. These are referred to as the “resin” and the “hardener”. When these compounds are mixed together, the amine groups react with the epoxide groups to form a covalent bond. The resulting polymer is heavily crosslinked and is thus rigid and strong. The process of polymerization is called “curing” and can be controlled through temperature and choice of resin and hardener compounds. Curing process can take from minutes to hours.
Why choose epoxy flooring?
The main reasons to choose epoxy flooring is the ease of maintenance, chemical resistance, safety, hygiene, moisture blocking and appearance.
In many warehouses, quality control depends on strict standards of cleanliness. Concrete dust can make meeting these standards almost impossible. Concrete dust is considered to be very harmful to health. Your existing floors can be repaired and then coated using premium industrial grade 2 pack epoxy floor coating to dust and oil proof the floor, making any cleanup a breathe.
Our Epoxy Floor Coatings have superior resistance to forklift and pedestrian traffic, acids and alkali spills. Your floors can be done in gloss, semi gloss, matt or in anti-slip finish and in a variety of colours – 356 to choose from. This will allow you to match your new floors epoxy floors the rest of the environment.
We inspect and moisture test your floor to find the most efficient solutions to your floor coating requirements. Whether the job is inside/outside, with low/medium or high amount of traffic – We always discuss with you all the options available so you can make an educated choice.
The key to any successful floor system installation is a proper surface preparation. We utilise the most advanced line of preparation equipment available to the industry and constantly training to keep current with newest and most up-to-date products and methods that are released onto the Australian market. Our tradesmen are trained in the use of captive shot-blasting, scarification, concrete grinding & polishing and floor topping removals.
Our application techniques depend on the product we use. Some epoxies are applied by rollers others by spray and for the thickest of the polyurethane resin applications we use trowels.
Durable Epoxy Floors for Mechanical Workshops
We regularly resurface and protect workshop floors against oils, fuel and other contaminants. In some cases the floor around hoists is done with addition of anti-slip aggregate, if required.
If you current floor coating is damaged or worn off – call us today to prevent your floor being contaminated with oils and other contaminants.
Lifespan of Epoxy Flooring
All epoxy floors we install have superior resistance to regular wear, acid or alkali spills. If your floor is regularly cleaned and maintained it will last for years. On the other hand if your epoxy flooring is constantly exposed to sand and other abrasives, the lifespan is greatly reduced.
