4m Resin Flooring Contractors: Delivering a Bespoke Blue SL Resin for the Aerospace Industry


Large blue SL resin floor

4m Floors UK, leading resin flooring contractors, recently tackled a unique project for a prominent aerospace manufacturer. The client desired a high-performance, aesthetically pleasing floor for a large production area. 4m rose to the challenge, delivering a stunning vivid blue self-leveling resin floor that not only met the client's functional needs but also created a dynamic and modern workspace.

This blog post delves into the project, exploring the reasons why aerospace manufacturers choose resin flooring solutions and the specific benefits they offer. We'll also showcase the meticulous installation process undertaken by 4m's experienced team, highlighting the importance of each step in achieving a flawless finish.

Why Resin Flooring is the Perfect Choice for Aerospace Manufacturers

The aerospace industry demands precision and high performance in every aspect of its operations. This extends to the very foundation of its facilities – the flooring. Here's why resin flooring reigns supreme in these demanding environments:

  • Durability and Strength:  Aerospace facilities often house heavy machinery, experience high foot traffic, and are exposed to chemicals and solvents. Resin floors are incredibly resilient, withstanding heavy loads, impact, and abrasion. They're also resistant to chemicals commonly used in the industry, minimizing the risk of damage.

  • Chemical Resistance: Spills and leaks are inevitable realities in an aerospace setting. Resin floors are specifically formulated to resist a wide range of chemicals, including oils, fuels, and solvents, ensuring a safe and functional environment.

  • Easy to Clean and Maintain:  Maintaining a clean and sterile environment is crucial in aerospace production. Resin floors are non-porous and seamless, preventing dirt and bacteria from harboring. They're also easy to clean, requiring minimal maintenance compared to traditional flooring solutions.

  • Anti-Slip Properties:  Safety is paramount in any industrial setting. Resin floors can be formulated with a textured finish to provide exceptional slip resistance, even in wet or oily conditions. This helps prevent accidents and ensures the safety of personnel.

  • ESD Control:  Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage sensitive electronic components used in aerospace manufacturing. Resin floors can be formulated to be static dissipative, preventing the build-up of static electricity and safeguarding equipment.

  • Fire Resistance:  Many resin flooring systems offer excellent fire resistance properties, slowing the spread of flames and providing valuable time in case of a fire.

  • Aesthetics:  Gone are the days of dull, industrial-looking floors. Resin floors come in a wide variety of colors and finishes, allowing for a sleek and modern aesthetic that can enhance any workspace.

Preparing The Floor: Pre-Installation Processes

Before embarking on the resin floor installation, meticulous preparation is paramount. Our team began by thoroughly grinding the existing concrete floor flat. This crucial step ensures a smooth, even surface for the resin to adhere to, preventing any unevenness or imperfections in the final finish.

Following the grinding process, any cracks, holes, or other imperfections in the concrete were meticulously repaired and filled. This ensures a seamless and level base for the new resin floor.

Installing the Bespoke Blue Resin Floor

Once the subfloor preparation was complete, the installation of the bespoke blue resin floor commenced. Here's a breakdown of the process:

  1. Primer Application: A high-performance primer was applied to the prepared concrete surface. This primer creates a strong bond between the concrete and the resin, ensuring optimal adhesion and longevity of the floor.

  2. Self-Leveling Resin Installation: The custom-mixed vivid blue self-leveling resin was then carefully poured onto the primed surface. This resin is specially formulated to flow smoothly and self-level, creating a perfectly even and seamless finish.

  3. Coating and Finishing Touches: After the self-leveling resin had cured, a final clear coat was applied to enhance the floor's durability and provide a high-gloss finish. Additionally, any necessary markings or safety signage were incorporated into the floor using specialist paint or embedded during the resin application process.


Amazing High Gloss SL Resin Floor

Next came the exciting part: creating the bespoke blue masterpiece. We used a high-quality, self-leveling resin specifically chosen for its vibrant blue color and exceptional performance characteristics. The self-leveling properties of the resin ensure a smooth, seamless finish across the vast floor area.

The final touches involved adding a clear polyurethane wear coat to further enhance the floor's durability and create a beautiful, high-gloss finish.
