Heavy Duty Flooring
Warehouses and lorry parking areas require floor systems with excellent compressive strength in order to withstand the weight of heavy traffic (eg. forklifts, lorries/trucks).
Common issues and queries you can face
For Newly Built Flooring
Ensure that the substrate is structurally sound, free of oil, grease and loose particles. The substrate should be cleaned by grit or shot blasting, high pressure water jetting, or grinding.
Prepare and apply E.Mix EP 500 PR, a solvent-free epoxy primer to prime and seal concrete substrates before the application of the flooring systems.
Mortar Screed Application
Mix and apply E.Mix EP 550 MS, a heavy duty epoxy mortar screed.
This product is a three-component, high performance epoxy flooring system specially formulated for food and beverage and industrial warehouses, multi-level carparks, motor workshops, and chemical processing plants.
Bonus: It has a compressive strength of 90 N/mm² with only 5mm thick coating (as compared to typical screeds with only around 25 N/mm² for 15-75mm thickness).
Coat using E.Mix EP 530 HB, a high build epoxy floor coating with excellent chemical resistance, low maintenance cost and no offensive odour.
Bonus: You can choose any color for the coating!
Pro tip: You may also scatter some fine silica sand onto the wet coating for an improved slip resistance.
The surface must be clean, sound, free from any laitance, oil, grease and any other contaminants. Remove using industrial detergent and scrub.
Bonding Paste Application
Prepare and apply E.Mix EP 562 BP, a resin-based bonding paste with excellent compressive and bond strength. It has non-sag characteristics suitable for general purpose bonding.
