FLOOR COATINGS APPLICATION, PREPARATION & HANDLING

FLOOR COATINGS APPLICATIONS

PREPARATION AND HANDLING

Many High-Performance products are two component catalyzed or unique curing systems that demand strict adherence to all technical data and guidelines.

Below is a routine checklist of sound practices and procedures:

 1) Before beginning, review all project specifications closely and read all technical data thoroughly.

2) Stage all materials before starting and double check that all the proper products, components, and quantities are on hand.

3) Make certain that all products are within the usable shelf-life dates.

4) Carefully follow all mixing instructions.

5) observe all mixing ratios, rates, and order of addition – i.e., Component B is added to Component A.

6) Provide efficient and thorough mixing of all products and allow for proper “sweat-in”or induction time.

7) Only mix enough material to be applied within the recommended working time or pot-life of the product.

8) Measure temperatures and make sure they are within allowable application ranges and note where cold or hot temperatures can slow or accelerate performance/application parameters.

9) If using thinners – only use recommended thinning agents.

10) Once the coatings are prepared make sure that the recommended application tools employed are high quality, clean and in good working condition.

APPLYING FLOOR COATING SYSTEMS METHODS:

Flooring system applications can be broadly grouped into two types; thin film (5-8 mls) and thick film (13-20 mls) systems.

Thin film applications are usually 2 coat systems; penetrating epoxy sealer/Pre-Prime and clear coats like moisture cure urethane finishes and lend themselves to brush, roll (3/8”nap max) and spray.

Thick film applications are normally 3 coat systems comprised of penetrating epoxy sealer/Pre-Prime, intermediate coat, and finish coat.

Tool requirements include brushes, squeegees and a variety of roller types; lambskin, phenolic core and porcupine.

Always refer to the technical data sheets for application recommendations for specific products and systems.

OPTIMAL 3 COAT – THICK FILM SYSTEM FIRST COAT – PENETRATING SEALER

The reaction of the epoxy sealer with the bare concrete performs a very important function of preventing “outgassing” with the subsequent topcoats.

Outgassing is a phenomenon where a liquid coating/topcoat reacts with unsealed concrete and gas is generated causing bubbles to form that become trapped in the finished film.The primer/sealer coat is poured or sprayed onto the floor and then evened out by brush, roller or squeegee.

All new or bare properly prepared concrete should receive a 100% solids epoxy Pre-Prime to provide a beginning foundation that forms a chemical bond within the concrete, satisfying the thirst and porosity of the substrate.

INTERMEDIATE AND FINISH COATS

Pour ribbons of the mixed coatings onto the floor then spread with squeegee, roller, lambswool applicator, or phenolic core roller. Lightly backroll with lint-free phenolic core roller perpendicular to the original squeegee orientation.

Avoid over rolling as it may cause appearance uniformity problems. Since many flooring systems are multilayer coats on large expansive areas, spiked shoes are routinely used by applicators so that they can walk into freshly coated areas to re-roll, even-out, lap, blend-in or broadcast aggregate or other materials into the finish while wet.

Porcupine rollers are used to smooth the surface coat and release entrapped air in the finish. Notched squeegees and rakes are used to apply high solids/ high build finishes at evenly controlled wet film thicknesses.

NON-SLIP SURFACES

Hand broadcast aggregate to recommended profile approximately 2 lbs per 100 square feet up to one hour after application.

A great industrial floor coating is the foundation of every manufacturing plant, industrial site or warehouse. The floor of any factory takes a beating, wear and tear.

Foot traffic, hand trucks and pallet movers put a lot of stress on a floor coating.

Combined with the assault from chemicals, spills and impact, the daily wear and tear on a factory floor is relentless.

A high quality industrial floor coating improves the safety of your manufacturing facility.

Standing up to this kind of punishment requires floor coatings with the highest levels of performance, durability and protection.

Plus, those floor coatings must be properly applied to get the greatest benefits from the materials.

At HPP we are your industrial floor coating experts. More years in the business and more experience than all our competitors combined.

We have years of hands-on experiences – with high performance floor coatings. Wears well and makes the factory floor look great and safer.

Plus, our clients are facility managers for industries much like yours.

A non slip solution for factory or warehouse floors must be rugged, durable and offer a high degree of slip resistance.  Safety is first and foremost.

Generally speaking, these types of floors are concrete and may have some sort of an epoxy finish.

Our Professional Industrial Coating Contractors have years of experience in providing coating solutions for many varied commercial and industrial installations.

  • Warehouses
  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Retail Showrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Commercial Kitchens
  • Manufacturing Facilities
  • Auto and Machine Shops

In 2018 we will work with you to evaluate your needs and discuss the many systems and products we have available.

We understand that a small difference in the per square foot cost between a typical epoxy floor and a modern polyurea system can become a major factor when considering the refinishing of tens of thousands of square feet, and that is why we offer multiple systems.

  • Epoxy floor coatings
  • Hybrid polyurethane topcoats
  • Polyaspartic polyurea systems
  • Densified and polished concrete
  • Slip resistant coatings
  • Solid colors, stained concrete, and simulated granite finishes

There’s a good reason why concrete is used almost exclusively for floors in basements and garages, warehouse facilities and manufacturing and food processing plants — it’s one of the few materials durable enough to stand up to the heavy traffic, abrasion, chemicals, and moisture exposure these surfaces are often subject to.

However, that doesn’t mean concrete slabs are indestructible. Left untreated without a concrete coating the porous materials that concrete is made of can succumb to extreme abuse, such as tire traffic, exposure to harsh chemicals and deicing salts, and frequent moisture contact.

These epoxies all called 100% solids because they do not have any solvents in them, and 100% of all the material stays on the floor rather than evaporating into the atmosphere. The added benefit to using 100% solid coatings is that because they contain no solvent, they have no hazardous odor and can be installed during regular production hours.

That’s where a good protective coating comes into play, giving concrete that extra layer of protection it needs to endure constant wear and tear.  In addition to its protective function, a coating can also dress up a drab surface, simplify maintenance and improve skid resistance.

As the floor wears, rough spots and potholes form, to take their toll on mobile equipment. Higher wheel replacement cost and equipment downtime become inevitable. But this doesn’t have to happen to you.

Concrete floors can have their deterioration stopped and the damage reversed.  Advances in epoxy technology have developed coatings that can protect a concrete floor and extend its life, while eliminating the dusting it had previously been producing.

The non slip solution for factory floor coating for these environments must have a very coarse texture and be able to handle a lot of friction from pallets, boxes, foot traffic, fork lifts and the like.  Factory & Warehouses Floors & Floor protection and Warehouse, protective coatings.

Protect your factory floor coating or warehouse workers from slip and fall accidents and the heavy liabilities that accompany those injuries in 2018 with HPP Industrials.

Concrete Coating & Protection

Concrete remains one of the most versatile materials used in construction today, but that versatility comes at a cost. Concrete’s various uses also mean it’s exposed to many different types of factors that could cause damage and erosion over time. As a coatings contractor, you’ve got to be just as resourceful to properly protect and maintain it in its various uses.

Whether it’s highway or bridge construction, a new smoke stack or a power plant renovation, Howell & Howell has you covered when it comes to the stuff that covers concrete. Let us know how we can provide the same quality concrete coating service we given to so many others for you by contacting us today.

Industrial Coatings, Different from Paint – A Contractor and Company in Louisville, KY

There’s a bit more to applying an industrial coating than just slapping it on with a brush, roller, or employing a sprayer.

Firstly, not all industrial coatings are the same. The selection of which coating will depend on several factors, primarily what type of substrate will the finish be going on. Is it steel, aluminum, wood? These are questions that should be answered and addressed before any type of coating is applied.

At Howell & Howell Contractors inc., we realize that it’s best to consult a coatings manufacturer for their advice when it comes to determining the correct product for a given application or project.  A manufacturer will have more experience with their products than anyone else.

Another thing to consider is the environment. There are factories and commercial locations where the weather conditions and physical environment, the coating will have to stand up to, are much different, due to what’s being produced at the plant or where it’s located.

Will it be a high moisture area? What about potential fumes from machinery, or chemicals? Will the surface be heating up and cooling down? Make sure that your estimator takes all of these things into consideration when speaking to your coatings manufacturer.

The last thing any industrial coating or commercial painting company in Louisville wants is to have to warranty an expensive finish because of not taking proper precautions when addressing a simple environmental issue during the initial consultation.

Surface preparation is a key factor. A lot of industrial coating or commercial painting companies fall short in this area. Very often a simple pressure washing or scraping followed by priming will not provide adequate cleaning for the new industrial finish to adhere for the long haul. A chemical wash or neutralizing agent of some sort may be necessary for a final cleaning to ensure that the newly applied finish has staying power. That’s where we go back to our product rep. After specifying a proper product you need to ensure that the preperation will be suitable for what’s going to be applied.

Different products require different solutions. Will the industrial painter you’ve hired to paint that oil storage container know this? Applying industrial finishes are not like residential interiors where it’s a straight forward painting process.

Give us a call or contact us. We will visit your site, and discuss your upcoming project.

We may need to schedule an additional visit so that our paint or coatings manufacturer can have a local representative on hand to give the best advice as well on the best and longest lasting finish possible.
