The first step in basic application involves placing a primer coat that prepares the surface and provides a base for the resin to adheer. After the self-leveling coat and any added flakes have set, we top the floor application with a top coat to seal it.

How to Install Epoxy Resine Floors By 3d Royal Floors
About Epoxy Resin Floors Epoxy coatings are fantastic products that can create great seamless resinous floors. A range of self-smoothing pigmented Epoxy Resin floor screeds available in a wide range of colours. Suitable for areas subject to foot traffic, forklift and vehicular traffic, such as factories, garages, showrooms, workrooms and industrial applications.
A surface needs to be properly prepared. This means it should be • clean • dry • dust-free and • the substrate must be ground or shot blasted Surface Preparation
Solvent based Epoxy products do not bond well with humidity • the surface is completely dry • no pipes or taps dripping • no rising humidity from beneath the ground Surface Preparation
This happens when the Epoxy floor product is much stronger than the substrate (for example low –quality cement) What ends up happening is that you don’t actually have the epoxy layer detaching from the cement Substrate
Floors experience heavy wear and tear Don’t assume the industrial floor screed will simply just stick to the substrate. Always make sure that the primer is suitable for the substrate Use suitable primer
Make sure the substrate is compatible for epoxies both in terms of adhesion as well as tensile strength. For example never coat epoxy on wood! Wood is far more flexible than epoxies which leads to the epoxy cracking simply because it cannot follow the expansions of the wood floor. Compatible Surface
All oils, greases, residues must be properly cleaned before attempting any type of fresh coating. Don’t expect proper bonding otherwise. Contaminated Floors
This was caused by a faulty mix between the resin and the hardener: Mixing incorrect or inaccurate proportions of the components Not mixing the material properly or for a long enough time Mix the Resin and the Hardener
