Whenever Ashley Resin Flooring provide a specification for work this will include the best type of surface preparation for you. Ashley Resin Flooring provides many different types of specialist floor preparation including the following types of surface preparation.
Vacuum enclosed shotblasting
Vacuum enclosed shotblasting is the most recommended type floor preparation. It is industry standard for floor preparation by all major resin manufactures for the removal of old floor coatings and to thoroughly prepare new and old concrete floors, helping to achieve a long lasting finish.
Vacuum assisted diamond grinding is used be ourselves for the preparation of concrete surfaces prior to coating and to level of uneven concrete surfaces.
Hot Compressed Air
Hot Compressed Air or HCA is the only proven long term solution to clean oil contaminated concrete floors. HCA’ing a floor burns away surface oil and draws up residual oil from within the concrete. Immediately after this has been carried out, Ashley Resin Flooring will apply a low viscosity solvent free epoxy resin to the concrete floor. As the concrete cools down the epoxy is drawn into the concrete while helping it cure quicker so sealing the concrete floor. After this has been carried out any type of epoxy or polyurethane resin system can be applied to the floor.
