A protective coat is built up on rough concrete flooring and this helps a great deal. Epoxy flooring is indeed a perfect floor covering that has long lasting feel, has immense durability, hard, and will make the flooring area a truly appealing one. It is all about making the sense, when you go for the Epoxy layering. If your commercial flooring area is facing one or the other kind of problem or imperfection, it becomes important that you opt for commercial flooring or coating. Technology is changing and so are the flooring options for commercial and industrial centers. The new flooring options are innovative and hold significance, when we talk of functionality.

Epoxy paints and layering methods provide quite attractive floors and these attractive floor finishes make the difference in the environs. Epoxy coated floors can be used in a rough manner and as the owner of commercial center; you do not have to worry about the wear and tear. One of the reasons why many business owners go for the Epoxy Flooring is that it brings peace of mind and gives value for money. Employees are happy that they are now working in a pollution free environment. Employers are more than satisfied as they have more efficiency and productivity because the employees are happy. Epoxy coating brings contentment to the employer as these coatings show remarkable resistance to the solvents, grease, alkali, dust, gasoline and the thawing salts. In totality, Epoxy coating brings ultimate difference and that is where advantage happens. In the hospitals and laboratories, Epoxy coating brings additional advantage. The floors are skid free, and patients and attendants can easily walk around without being concerned about the fall. This is of extreme practical importance. Epoxy coated floors can also handle large amount of traffic within limited area and that too without any hassle. In the commercial centers and other buildings where the human activity at any point of time is very high, Epoxy coated floors bring safety, security and of course longevity. With Epoxy flooring around, you can now enjoy the life and provide cool work place to your employees. And of course, you do not have to worry about losing the floor finish too!

PERMADECK HD SYSTEM DESIGN
System Details :
Primer : SURESEAL PS38
Screed : SURESEAL ES5000
Sealer : SURESEAL 2005 SF
Top Coat : SURESEAL 2005 SF
Line marking : PLC 118 ST
Total Thickness : 4 to 5 mm

APPLICATION PROCEDURE
Substrate Requirement
New concrete shall have a minimum compressive strength of 25 N/mm2 and cured for 28 days. The moisture content of the substrate shall not exceed 4% ( Tramex CME 4 meter ) or a moisture barrier is needed. The pull of tensile strength shall be at least 1.0 N/mm2.

Surface Preparation:
The surface shall be prepared by scarifier or captive blasting with steel shots to remove laitance and other surface contaminants and provide good profile to enhance mechanical keying. Cracks and blow holes shall be patched with materials. Industrial vacuum cleaner shall be used to remove dust during surface preparation.

Epoxy Primer
The primer SURESEAL PS38 shall be applied by roller or steel trowel at a rate of 0.25 to 0.3 kg/m2 immediately after surface preparation process is completed. All coating materials shall be mixed thoroughly with power mixer to ensure homogeneous mix. The epoxy screed SURESEAL ES5000 shall be applied while the primer is still tacky.

Epoxy Screed
The epoxy screed shall be thoroughly mixed by mortar mixer. The materials shall be evenly spread with a screed box at a rate of 8.0 to 9.0 kg/m2 and compact by hand using steel trowel or power trowel.

Epoxy Sealer
A sealer coat SURESEAL 2005 SF is applied over the applied screed immediately when the screed is hard enough to be stepped on. The sealer coat shall be applied by steel trowel to the screed surface and ensure the porosity is filled.

Epoxy Topcoat
The topcoat SURESEAL 2005 SF shall be applied over the sealer coat by steel trowel or rubber squeegee at a rate of 1.5 kg/m2.
