  • Two coats of a topcoat sealer using a UV Stabilised Polyurethane.

 

Is it slippery?

No, in areas which have high traffic a non-slip additive will be applied in the topcoat. This can be applied in various levels which change how ‘grippy’ the floor is. We call this the Goldilocks Approach, as we can ascertain the correct level of nonslip additive which needs to be applied to your floor.

Preparation Process

Our preparation includes the thorough grinding of the concrete slab. We use the latest in captive diamond grinding technologies to ensure the best surface preparation. This allows us to open up the pores of the concrete which assists the coating sucking into the slab and densifying the top layer.

Is it dusty?

No, we take the safety of everyone on site very seriously thus we invest in the newest dust extraction technologies for both the clients benefit and for the health and safety of our employees.
