New coating technology to improve the performance and appearance of concrete floors
Our floor coating range comprises two categories:
Power Floated and General Concrete Sealer.
This is a high solids, silane-terminated polyether base with added alpha-silane technology. Curing on contact with moisture, its chemical structure has been optimised to achieve low viscosity with a high solids content. As a result the binder penetrates deep into the pores of cementitious substrates, lining the pores completely and forming a thin, shiny non-slip film on the surface. After the binding has occurred, everyday substances containing water, oil, cleaning fluids and waste are unable to enter the pores, thereby giving highly effective stain protection. Even substances that are left on the surface for some time can be removed without any lasting stains.
The Sealer is supplied ready to use.
On new concrete ensure the surface is clean and dust free. On old concrete ensure the Sealer is applied directly onto clean and dust free concrete, so any old paints, coatings etc. must be ground off and the surface polished (the coating will mirror the surface to an extent, so a rough surface will become a coated rough surface).
The Sealer is applied in one generous coat using a roller or airless sprayer. Cure time is 24 hours in ambient conditions and then it’s ready for traffic.
Epoxy Floor Paints
Our floor paint range is formulated from high quality epoxy resins to give a hard wearing coating. Although there are many low cost floor coatings available, there are a number of performance benefits to be had from the Blocksil range.
Our coating range is dust free, is easy to apply and is fast curing. The cured floor coating is easy to clean as it has good abrasion resistance and good chemical resistance.
In situations where the temperature is low, we can offer a low temperature curing option. In addition there are solvent free options where air flow is restricted. With a good dry film thickness and wide colour range, there is a Blocksil epoxy floor coating suitable for most applications, including coloured quartz systems.
We have both solvent free and solvent based coatings as well as a water dispersible option. With a matt or gloss finish, clear or pigmented, our coatings can be used on floors and walls. Where floors are coated then slip resistance is available.
But of course our coatings are not just for floors or walls. Their chemical resistance makes them ideal for tank and bund lining. There is even a concrete repair grout.
