Epoxy Flooring Procedure

  1. 1. Contents •Introduction •Types •Application Procedure •Efficiency •Advantages •Disadvantages •Conclusion
  2. 2. Introduction • Origin • Development • Growth • Scope • Features
  3. 3. The basic chemical structure of epoxy group:-
  4. 4. Resin Sand Hardener Pigment Mixing Epoxy Flooring Mortar
  5. 5. Types •Epoxy Flooring •Polyurethane Flooring(PU Flooring) •Antistatic Flooring •Anti Skid Flooring
  6. 6. Application Procedure
  7. 7. HOW TO START?????
  8. 8. Procedure 1. Surface Preparation 2. Priming Of Surface 3. Mixing 4. Application 5. Clean up
  9. 9. Surface Preparation • Removal of dust • Removal of paint, plaster, adhesive residues • Scarifying the surface Precaution:- 1. If any crack or joint present on substrate it must be open up & fill with epoxy material. 2. New slab must be cured for 14 days.
  10. 10. Priming Of Surface • All substrates going to receive coat must be primed with primer • No. of primer coats depends upon condition & porosity of substrate Precaution:- All surface should be dust free.
  11. 11. Mixing • All component materials of coat are mixed • Mixing should be done for 1 min by using forced action • Electric stirrer should be used for mixing Precaution:- Use adequate ventilation, respirators and Protective gloves.
  12. 12. Application • Properly mixed material is then placed on primed substrate without delay • Use trowels & rollers for application Precaution:- Do not over roll the surface.
  13. 13. Clean up • When the job is over all equipments must be clean up by using thinner. • The residual epoxy on workers skin must be washed out. Precaution:-Use industrial skin clear for epoxy. Clean or dispose contaminated clothes properly.
  14. 14. After the application of coat….
  15. 15. Efficiency • Joint less flooring • Provides more clean and hygienic condition • 5-6 mm thick PU flooring has same bearing strength as concrete • Saves manpower and time efficiently.
  16. 16. Advantages • Long lasting surface • Very low maintenance cost • Very much resistant to hard wearing, abrasion • Resistant to a wide chemicals & liquids • Seamless-easily cleaned to maintain high standards of hygiene • Much suitable in food & drinks production environment
  17. 17. Disadvantages • High initial cost. For ex. Depending upon thickness (mm) cost is 700 Rs./Sq. Mt to 2000 Rs/sq. Mt • Require skilled labor and guidance.
  18. 18. Conclusion • Epoxy flooring is a modern technique. • It can be prove more reliable than conventional flooring. • It has wide range of scope in Indian industries. • More research has to be made so that to make it much affordable.
