- To be suitable for use on factory floors industrial floor paints must generally be tough and resistant enough to withstand:-
- The abrasion and wear that will take place i.e. from forklifts, pallet trucks, cars,4X4 plus other vehicle movements across the factory floor.
- The static loading that is imposed on the painted factory floor surface by pallet stacking in storage, or other equipment on the floor
- Most liquid or chemical spillages that may occur on the floor i.e. Water, oils, Cutting Agents, Soft acid cleaning agents, wheel/brake cleaners, engine coolant, brake fluids some fuel's etc. that are used in the processes carried out on the painted floor.
- (do not leave these to sit on the area coated they must be removed and not left to soak into the area, they will withstand the spill but not for long periods of time)
- Most factory floors are reinforced concrete floors, and this must obviously have sufficient strength to support all of these loadings and uses.
- to strengthen and improve the factory floor surface
- to eliminate dust, build up on surface (pre seal primer coating is always advised on dusty unpainted areas before a topcoat is applied)
- to increase the floors abrasion and wear resistance
- to provide the increased additional chemical resistance
- to improve the appearance and ambience of the working environment
- to speed up the cleaning/mopping of the area cutting down on time of this task and also to help combat dust issues on stock and surface contamination
- to delineate specific areas, such as: safe walking areas, parking bays or access routes and other directions etc.
- Testing if the area is ready to coat with this type of professional coating
- testing if a concrete surface is ready to coat (identifying a power floated or screed or other issue surface) this is a very simple process of putting a small amount of water on the surface you are looking to apply this range of floor coatings to ensure the area is clean and free from any contamination. If the water absorbs after a few minutes this area is ready for the cleaning & coating stages, we can advise if needed with this.
- If the water sits on the surface and will not absorb and puddles this is a sign the area may require further preparation with acid etch or abrading. The acid etch process is a really easy application we can take you through this process step by step if required.
Dusty Unstable/Virgin Surfaces
For areas that are dusty and unstable, you will need a product that has been designed for maximum penetration while providing a good film build by re-bonding the substrate together, returning the floor to a solid sound surface the product we advise is Pre Seal this can be found on the floor paint drop down menu.
Oily / Contaminated Surfaces
Where the floors have been subjected to oil and grease, We recommend steam cleaning your floors and use Heavy Duty Surface Deep Clean before application of any floor coating, after allowing the surface to dry and Pre Seal has been applied a top coat can then be applied please do test patches on each stage of this process.
A floor coating does not do well if you have any moisture issues Hydrostatic pressure from the moisture can actually cause the coating to peel up, sometimes taking pieces of the concrete with it. Should floors be devoid of an effective Damp Proof Membrane (DPM), virtually any paint will lift and peel off the surface. Indeed, even self-levelling screeds can be pushed up by water pressure. This is another nightmare regularly experienced by many companies. For this reason, a damp-proof coating is recommended as a solution before applying a floor paint.
Repair your floor:
Before painting your garage floor, it is important to repair any cracks, holes or expansions of joints in your concrete to prevent an un-slightly finish to your flooring once its painted.
Pre-Seal is designed to seal the surface from the outgassing of the concrete, where air will rise and be expelled from the concrete which is often caused by a rise in temperature or a change in humidity. Another major cause to poor flooring is rising damp. Due to a poor or non-existent DPM (Damp Proof Membrane), the damp is caused by a rising water table and/or the immediate surrounding areas being waterlogged.
