Epoxy Coating

An epoxy coating is a coating compound consisting of two definitive elements: an epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener (also known as a catalyst).  Once fully cured, the resulting product is a durable, rigid plastic coating with numerous desirable mechanical properties.

This system is applied to suitable concrete floors where the substrate has been thoroughly prepared through dust extracted diamond grinding or closed-circuit vacuum shot blasting.  It is applied in two or more coats by brush and roller to a thickness of 50-250 microns per coat, epoxy coatings are used to enhance the floor and provide a safe and easy to clean surface.

Altro – Altro Tect™

Altro Tect is a durable, twin-pack solvent-free, epoxy high-build floor coating, for use in light to medium-duty industrial areas where there is a low risk of slipping.  It is available in a variety of colours and variants. 

Technical Datasheet:

Altro – Altro Tect SR

Altro Tect SR is slip-resistant and has all the benefits of Altro Tect with the addition of an incorporated micaceous mineral that lightly textures the floor’s surface giving a degree of slip resistance.

Altro – Altro Coat™

Altro Coat is a twin-pack, water-miscible, epoxy resin with a greatly reduced substrate drying time. It is a fast-track solution suited to light to medium duty areas and newly installed cementitious substrates.  Altro Coat variants provide a fast-track, cost-effective solution, permitting the passage of moisture vapour from the substrate, while still providing a barrier against contamination.  It is available in a wide standard colour range.

Altro Coat standard has a silk finish and is ideal for use in areas with a low risk of slipping.

Technical Datasheet:

Altro Coat slip-resistant has a micaceous mineral that provides a lightly textured surface and is ideal for areas with an increased risk of slipping.
