A professional epoxy finish for SMT Autos Hereford
SMT Autos Hereford decided to get in touch with PSC so that we could look at their 530 square metres of car workshop and MOT center. It was explained to us that they had painted the floors themselves twice a year for the last 4 years. Unfortunately, they were disappointed that the paint was not lasting. The client was looking for a professional high-quality workshop and the floor was letting them down.
When looking at the floor itself, it was obvious and fair to say there had been little to no preparation. There was just the general sweeping and removal of loose material. Additionally, the material they had used was too thin and not appropriate for their high level of activity.
Taking into account the finish they required, and the level of traffic, we recommended that a two coat Resdev Pumatect high build epoxy resin system should be used.
Why use high build epoxy resin for your workshop floor?
Resdev branded Pumatect High Build Coating is a roller applied colour floor epoxy coating system. The floor coating is recommended for applying to concrete surfaces. The epoxy resin technology gives it good abrasion and chemical resistance making it ideal for industrial flooring. Another advantage of this epoxy resin is that it is available in a wide range of gloss colours. The Resdev Pumatect product is a self-priming floor covering, and the first coat acts as a primer coat. The second coat acts as the floor finish. So in the case of SMT Autos where no damp was found, a DPM (Damp Proof Membrane) was not needed.
Resdev Pumatect is perfect for car workshops and MOT centres. It can also be used in all areas including staff kitchen facilities, toilets and washrooms and chemical storage areas. An industry favourite, this product is widely chosen for its hardwearing nature and aesthetically pleasing finish.
It is suitable for many different industries including the Pharmaceutical, Food & Drink, Automotive, Engineering, Warehousing, and Electronics industries.
Kate Thomas, workshop manager said, “We are absolutely delighted with the new resin floor; it’s made a huge difference to our workshop. We are incredibly grateful to PSC Flooring who were very professional and have done an excellent job and would strongly recommend them“.
