The previous surface in Shimizu’s injection moulding operation contained many layers of ordinary floor paint, but this had been subject to damage by fork lift traffic. The brief was for a long-lasting surface that was easy to clean and would hold its colour. A 2-3 mm finish was applied of Reeflor EL002 a trowel-applied, self-smoothing epoxy coating containing fine aggregates. Contrasting colours differentiated pedestrian walkways, and a zebra crossing was in-built.
“Working in the cold forming industry with a high profile customer base, we were looking for a hard wearing floor covering that had to withstand day to day running of a busy manufacturing environment. Using heavy machinery, forklift trucks and a variety of industrial oils and floor cleaning products.”
“Excellent & friendly service, quality product – would recommend to any new customer.”
