Industrial floor paint can meet a variety of requirements whether they are safety or management-preferred requirements such as the colour and design of a floor surface. It is one thing to know that an anti slip floor is essential. It is another thing to determine how much anti slip factor is necessary. This can range from slip resistant to a highly abrasive surface.
Before you buy floor paint, consider what results you want. Whether it is garage floor paint or a painted factory floor surface, whether it is to be applied over a new concrete floor or a refurbished surface, a Reepol expert can advise you on the ideal flooring system.
Any of our epoxy resin floor paint can be customised to meet your needs. It can be a water dispersable floor paint such as Reecote EC015 or a solvent based epoxy resin floor paint such as Reecote EC014. Reepol’s industrial floor paints & coatings can be made chemical resistant and heat resistant. They can also have gradations of slip resistance qualities as well as decorative finishes. As for line marking paints, Reecote EC017 W/F is recommended. It is a solvent free epoxy wall coating.
One primary factor for many industrial and commercial businesses is downtime. Any floor application does take time with the cleaning, curing, and drying time. The nature of epoxy resin is that it is a chemical reaction that begins to set in less than an hour in most cases. Touch dry after around 12 hrs, the typical Reepol paint will be ready for a second coat in less than 24 hours.
All products come with data sheets that provide details on the necessary tools & primers and where it is suitable for use. For example, Reecote EC015 comes in a two-pack epoxy floor paint package. Component A weighs 4.8 Kg and Component B weighs 1.0 Kg providing a coverage area of approx 168g/m2. Of course, the exact coverage varies from floor to floor.
Reecote EC014 comes in a similar package. The pack has a different weight in the components because the components are different as they yield a different floor coating – dust free, chemical and abrasion resistant – than EC015. Reecote EC014 is a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents, mineral fillers and solvent. Reecote EC015 is solvent free and can be thinned with water. It’s not flammable, is odour free and suitable for application onto damp surfaces.
Regardless of the painted factory floor surface, Reepol have the solution. Reepol’s R & D department constantly strives to come up with innovative floor paint solutions such as Reetop P1200 which is ideal for heavy industrial and commercial environments. It combines aggregates, cement, and acrylic resins.
