INDUSTRIAL EPOXY FLOORING
This epoxy floor system is a whopping 30 mils thick and designed for high tonnage vehicles such as fire engines, dump trucks, buses, semis, large jumbo jets, cranes etc. This industrial epoxy flooring system is perfect for heavy equipment repair shops. This is a turnkey package that includes the high performance primer, our HV100 super duty floor epoxy, mixing wands, rollers, mixing buckets and nonslip additive.
Typically this floor epoxy will handle loads up to a 100 tons. This industrial floor epoxy when fully cured is super hard. It has a hardness rating of Shore-D 90. To put that in perspective, hard hats are typically rated at between 75-85. It also has a compressive strength of 13, 600psi, many times stronger than the concrete it's going on.
Below we go through the three steps of doing this type of floor. This requires 1-2 days of installation and another couple of days to let the final epoxy coating fully harden. The epoxy flooring system is designed for 10-15 yrs of heavy duty service.
While installation of the epoxy flooring system requires extensive floor prepping. Many times installation can be accomplished while maintaining the facility in full service by doing the floor in sections.
STEP 1 - Clean garage floor of all dirt and oil stains with a 4:1 solution of water to muriatic acid solution, brush in 1 lb TSP powder per 600 sq ft and then rinse thoroughly and let dry. To save drying time you can diamond grind or shot blast the floor clean. For heavily soiled or poorly maintained floors grinding is strongly recommended for best results. Repair any cracks or spalled concrete with one of our repair kits after cleaning. For heavily oil stained floors select the oil primer option.
STEP 2 - Apply a high performance epoxy primer coat or the oil primer.
STEP 3 - When primer is dry to the touch apply the epoxy at a 70sf/gal rate. We recommend spreading the floor epoxy with our calibrated notched squeegee first then back rolling over it to smooth it out. Do not mix more than 1 gallon per person rolling. This is a high catalytic reaction epoxy and the more you mix the faster it sets up. After mixing the part A & B together transfer from mixing bucket to smaller pails and give it a quick remix. Then pour the floor epoxy in a bead from left to right, squeegee and back roll. Then repeat till done. For nonslip finish broadcast the nonslip after squeegeeing but before you back roll. Once the floor epoxy is dry to the touch you can walk on it and put light traffic on it. Let floor cure for 3 days to reach full hardness before putting heavy vehicles on it.
