Epoxy Flake Floor, Flowcrete Peran Flake system - 2019
The project was a newly built warehouse and offices. The areas we worked within were for office use. To prepare the areas we used a diamond grinder removing a enough of the unsealed concrete that would allow a strong bond between any coatings and the prepared surface . The area was then thoroughly vacuumed.
The floor was then primed with a DPM primer; the spec was for flowcretes Hydroseal DPM in this case, this was squeegeed and backrolled for a consistant finish.
The second coat was then squeegeed and backrolled the following day ready for a full blind flake coverage. This was Flowcretes SF41 in goosewing gray. The flake was then vacuumed off the following day and ready to be sealed. The flake was not "de-nibbed", as the client specified a anti-slip finish and so it was agreed apon that leaving a courser finish of the flake would provide the level of anti slip they needed in their office area.
The floor was then sealed with a gloss seal coat. This being Flowcrete Peran sealer. This was squeegeed and backrolled to leave the desired finish.
Templars Project - 2011
The original floor was a mixture of carpets, vinyl tiles and paint. All coverings were removed and any adhesive residues were removed with a diamond grinder. The prepared floor was vacuum cleaned before an epoxy primer was applied.
The final coating was a 6-20mm of self-levelling screed that was pumped onto the floor to achieve a flat smooth surface ready for carpeting.
The unit is now occupied by Tesco Homecare.
