Standard Trowelled System

Overview of this package

This package is ideal where you need a floor that slopes or ‘falls’ to a drain. It will give a very strong food grade epoxy floor and a neat finish with good long-term durability. Trowelled flooring takes a lot longer to cure than a standard floor due to the volume of epoxy, so we ask that you schedule such a floor well in advance. For more information or a quote,call us on 1800 033 444.

Floors That Use This

FAQs

Is there any advantage of doing falls in epoxy rather than concrete?

Yes, we would recommend this, as epoxy is much stronger and the falls can be sealed with an epoxy layer immediately, as opposed to concrete where the curing time is much longer.

Is joint sealing necessary under a trowelled floor?

We strongly maintain that joint sealing is required wherever two floor surfaces meet that are likely to expand and contract or move differentially from one another. Apart from some very specialised membrane-type systems, food factory floors that are hard and chemical-resistant will not stand up to the movement that is typical at expansion joints.

What is the strength of epoxy as compared to the strength of concrete?

This varies depending on resin amount, but strengths of up to 94mpa are achievable with epoxy mortars, whereas typical concrete strength is 20-40mpa.
