At REEPOL it’s important to us that all of our resin flooring products are available to business owners that want to take a DIY approach to their new epoxy resin flooring system. The application process for our epoxy floor systems is easy after just a small amount of preparation – there’s no need to use a contractor if you don’t want to!
Take, for example, our range of self-levelling epoxy flooring resins. After the installation of a primer these products create a smooth, even surface with ease. These hard wearing and heavy-duty floors are strong enough for a variety of industrial areas and are easy to clean and repair, making maintenance a breeze.
Why would you want to use an epoxy flooring finish instead of polished concrete or stone? Both epoxy and polyurethane flooring materials can provide a variety of special protective and functional features, and are suitable for a wide range of harsh working conditions. An epoxy floor coating can provide damp proofing and waterproofing features and also help prevent trips and accident thanks to anti-slip attributes.
That’s not all however; REEPOL resin floor coatings are available in a large palette of colours and can act as decorative features in your warehouse or factory space. They can also act as a health and safety solution as, thanks to the range of available colours, health and safety designs can be installed directly into the floor paint.
We’ve already mentioned that our resin screed and flooring products are easy to install yourself and so here’s a little more about the process. First, it is vital that your existing concrete floors are clean and in good condition – any large cracks or holes will need to be repaired first. We also recommend using a blasting or hot compressed air technique to clean the concrete substrate – such a method will remove any contaminate oils or grease without creating dust that may impact the strength of your epoxy resin flooring.
Once the concrete surface is ready, you can apply one of our many categories of epoxy and polyurethane flooring solutions. It may be necessary to install an epoxy primer prior to the application of the main product, so be sure to read all accompanying documentation before you start. Once curing is complete you will be left with an attractive, high performance industrial flooring surface that can take anything you can throw at it.
If you are looking to reduce the costs of a high quality epoxy flooring solution, then self-installation of REEPOL products is a great way to do it. Even if you decide to go DIY, or use your own contractor to install REEPOL products, we’ll still be on hand to offer advice and guidance on our extensive array of epoxy finishes should you need it.
