As part of a programme to convert an existing warehouse to create additional manufacturing space for a Worcestershire conservatory manufacturer, Resdev’s Pumatect epoxy resin flooring system has been specified to refurbish a 500m2 area, resulting in a visually attractive finish combining advanced levels of performance in use together with easy clean properties.
The project was managed by industrial flooring specialists Protective Surface Coatings Ltd, who selected Resdev products to meet the client’s brief for a high gloss resin floor coating system capable of handling the rigours of their manufacturing processes. Pumatect also offers an extended service life and non-slip properties in line with safety requirements.
The existing floor had originally been coated several times using floor paint, which was badly discoloured, flaking off in many areas and presented significant challenges to remove. The team from Protective Surface Coatings prepared the concrete surface carefully to ensure optimum adhesion for the new flooring using an enclosed diamond grinding machine to remove layers of old paint.
All holes, damaged concrete and cracks were then repaired using epoxy mortar compound. When preparation work was complete, the entire floor was treated using two coats of Resdev’s Pumatect high build epoxy resin in a mid-grey colour. The resin floor was completed with the addition of a further two coats of Resdev Pumatect high build epoxy resin in a safety yellow colour to create the required demarcation and walkways.
The project was completed on time and to budget in just four days, creating an attractive and functional manufacturing environment engineered to meet the demands of the client’s systems and processes.
Pumatect is a tough and hard wearing epoxy floor coating which is virtually solvent free, offering excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. Available in a selection of standard colours, with an extended selection of BS 48000 or RAL colours available upon request, Pumatect protects floors from oil and chemical spillages and is ideal for use in warehouses, factories and workshops.
