Self Smoothing High Gloss Epoxy Resin Flooring

UK wide installer of self-smoothing (aka self-levelling) epoxy resin floor toppings. These are laid at a thickness of 2-6mm to provide high gloss, smooth, easily cleanable floor surfaces ideally suited to high-tech and hygienic working environments.

Suitable for Medium to Heavy Duty usage dependant upon selected thickness.

Self-Smoothing High Gloss Epoxy Resin Floor Topping

2-3mm Thick - Medium to Heavy Duty

4-6mm Thick - Heavy to Very Heavy Duty

Epoxy resin self-smoothing flooring was introduced to the UK market in the late 1970's and is now estimated to have been applied to almost three million m2 of floors in that time.

In the early days these floors were referred to as self levelling and in some quarters still are. This description should be applied with caution as at 2-6mm in thickness the levelling properties are limited - this is compounded by the fact that the high gloss finish will highlight and perhaps even exaggerate the slightest of undulations. If a mirror like self-levelling finish is required proceed with caution.

Self smoothing epoxy resin floors provide hard wearing attractive surfaces that are chemically resistant, impervious and easy to clean.

Available in a wide range of colours epoxy resin self-smoothing flooring is 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.

Applied at a thickness of 2-3mm self smoothing epoxy resin floor toppings are capable of withstanding a far greater degree of wear and tear than a high build epoxy resin floor coating and when applied at a thickness of 4-6mm are deemed to be suitable for very heavy duty environments.

Whilst self-smoothing epoxy resin floors will scratch, scuff and gouge if subjected to heavy traffic it is virtually unheard of for the floor to be sufficiently damaged to the point where the underlying concrete floor slab is exposed.

BS8204-6 categorises these epoxy resin floor toppings 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, dependant upon a number of factors e.g. a factory working a forty hour week will achieve four times the lifespan of an identical operation working a 24/7 regime.

Type 7 (4-6mm thick) and recommends them for regular foot traffic, constant forklift traffic and hard plastic wheeled trolleys with some impact resistance. In Heavy Duty working environments the BS indicates a typical life expectancy of 8-10 years for this type of floor topping, dependant upon a number of factors e.g. a factory working a forty hour week will achieve four times the lifespan of an identical operation working a 24/7 regime.

An anti-slip dressing should be considered in areas where a slip hazard might arise from water ingress, operational spillages or debris that may land on the floor.
