Why Choose Us

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.

Is there any advantage of a trowelled floor over a standard floor?

We recommend trowelled floors where the floor needs to fall to a drain, or where the floor needs building up. See a comparison here (link to blog post)

How do I know if my concrete needs to be excavated and re-poured in this way or if the standard system will be sufficient?

Our consultants will give you an honest assessment of your floor and give you a recommendation based on this.

Do we have to take out all our equipment to re-do the floor?

No, although it needs to be noted that any equipment that blocks access to the floor will prevent us from giving an unbroken resin layer.

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.

How long will you have to wait for new concrete to cure before installing the epoxy flooring?

New concrete should be left 28 days prior to being coated with epoxy. In situations where time lag is an issue, we recommend using a high strength epoxy mortar instead of concrete as this can be overcoated within a day of being laid.

Does flake give more roughness/ slip resistance to the floor?

Not necessarily, although the flake profile can be used as a type of non-slip media if a non-slip floor is required.

Will the non-slip profile stop an ice sheet from forming? How?

This depends on the condensation and surface water in the room. If the surface water sits at a depth greater than the profile of the floor, the answer is obviously no.

What temperature will my coolroom have to be brought to for you to lay new epoxy?

Ideally the floor should be 8°C or above and the concrete should be dry. However, we understand that this isn’t always possible and there are solutions available to deal with lower temperatures.

Do you do asbestos removal if required or would we have to organise that?

If asbestos removal is required, we are more than happy to arrange it if our clients are happy with that. 

If the floor is still wet when you go to lay down the flooring, is that OK?

No, the floor needs to be dry.

Is it possible to do a continuous floor from a kitchen into a blast freezer?

Yes, although at the threshold we would typically install a flexible joint to accommodate expansion and contraction of the two floors.
