Industrial Unit

Orientrose Contracts Ltd approached The National Flooring Company to provide a new epoxy coating at an industrial unit in Huntingdon at the end of a leased tenancy agreement. The client was required to return the floor to a similar standard that was presented to them at the start of the tenancy.

The floor was prepared with a shot blaster to remove the existing worn epoxy coating and any other contaminants. Good floor preparation is also key to ensuring a better bond between the coating and the substrate.

Following the removal of fixtures and fittings, the client had more than 150 bolt holes and minor repairs that required attention before the epoxy coating could be applied. All damaged areas were treated and infilled with a fast cure filler before the application of the KDR® EpoCoat HB was applied.

KDR® EpoCoat HB is a solvent-free high-build epoxy resin which is used to provide a protective and decorative finish to the concrete.

The installation, which totalled 885m2, was completed over a three-day window.

Euan Macdonald, Quantity Surveyor, Orientrose Contracts Limited, comments, “I am more than happy with the work carried out by National Flooring.

Communication was good, and they were very user-friendly.

The resin floor looks great, and I would certainly use them in the future.”
