Flowable Epoxy

This system is applied to suitable concrete floors where the substrate has been thoroughly prepared by means of dust extracted diamond grinding or closed circuit vacuum shot blasting. This process removes any laitance and contaminants (new concrete) and provides a mechanical key for improved adhesion. 

Once prepared, the existing surface is treated with two coats of epoxy primer prior to trowel applying the epoxy resin system at a thickness of 2-3mm. This can be left as the finished surface or an anti-slip topcoat can be applied to increase durability and slip resistance.

Epoxy self-smoothening floors offer increased durability over epoxy coated floors and a greater duration before first maintenance is required.

Epoxy floor coatings and epoxy self-smoothening floors can be applied within most industrial sectors of the UK economy.

Heavy-duty flowable systems are best suited to heavy industrial environments, in areas that are subject to heavy traffic but are not constantly wet.

Altro – Altro Flow™

Designed for areas that require increased hygiene, Altro Flow offers excellent chemical and impact resistance and is available in 25 high gloss colours. It is a solvent-free, epoxy resin system for application on a level floor and provides a seamless and smooth surface. 

Altro Flow is available in a choice of 1mm standard2mm standard and 3mm standard variants to suit the different demands of your environment. There is also the option of a 3mm static-dissipative variant for areas where there are electronically sensitive environments and equipment.  It offers the performance benefits of epoxy resin flooring and this variant is measured in accordance with test method BS 2050 when used on prepared substrates treated with Altro Prime™ static-dissipative variant.

Flowcrete – Flowshield SL

This system gives a hygienic, self-smoothing, impermeable resin floor finish, and is used to protect concrete thanks to its improved durability to withstand both mechanical and chemical impact.  It is suitable for dry process areas where the floor is subjected to medium to heavy-duty foot, trolley, pallet truck and rubber wheeled forklift traffic.  Its coloured, 3-component epoxy-based coating is ideal for projects where colour continuity may be a concern.
