OMC Motor Group Ltd – Vehicle Workshop Flooring
Client Brief and Recommendation
At the site visit it was obvious that there were failed floor paint coatings, as well as the usual oil, grease, and dirt that you would expect in a vehicle workshop. The client was looking for a hardwearing flooring solution that would reflect the light and be easy to keep clean. PSC recommended a two-coat high build system.
Preparation of floor surface
In order to remove the failed floor paint coatings, and remove the oil, grease and dirt the floor was thoroughly cleaned using the totally enclosed triple headed diamond grinding floor machine and a handheld diamond grinder. The whole area was then vacuumed clean and repairs were made to localised damaged concrete, holes and cracks using epoxy resin screed and polyurethane mortar.
650 Square Metres of Vehicle Workshop High Build Epoxy Resin
In order to prevent any oil on the floor leaching the 80 square metres of the floor was given one coat of Resdev Pumaprime OCS oil tolerant epoxy resin primer where there was heavy oil contamination under the ramps. Once dry two coats of Resdev Pumatect high build epoxy resin flooring system were laid, in the clients chosen light grey. To complete the look areas were masked off to ramp area and a safety yellow was applied with a white line outline.
