Case Study: Transforming Spaces with 4M Floors UK - With Epoxy SL Resin Flooring

Updated: Jun 3

Large factory floor with epoxy resin installed

For over three decades, 4M Floors UK has been a cornerstone in the epoxy resin flooring industry, delivering top-notch solutions that combine durability, aesthetics, and innovation. Our recent project, a large-scale factory setting, showcases our meticulous process and the transformative power of high-quality resin flooring.

The Challenge

The client approached us with a worn-out floor that had seen better days. The surface was riddled with cracks, holes, and general wear, posing not only an aesthetic concern but also a potential hazard for the daily operations. The task was clear: rejuvenate the floor with a durable, seamless, and visually appealing solution that could withstand heavy foot traffic and machinery use.

Step 1: Surface Preparation

Preparation is the cornerstone of any successful flooring project. Our team began by thoroughly assessing the existing floor condition. The surface was cleaned to remove any debris, grease, or contaminants that could interfere with adhesion.

Next, we utilised state-of-the-art grinding machines to prepare the substrate. This step is crucial as it ensures a smooth, even surface by removing the top layer of the existing floor, including any previous coatings. Grinding also opens up the concrete pores, which enhances the bonding of the new resin layers.

Step 2: Repairing the Substrate

With the surface prepped, the next step was addressing the cracks and holes. We employed Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) for this purpose. MMA is renowned for its rapid curing properties, which significantly reduces downtime and allows us to proceed to the next steps more swiftly.

We meticulously filled each crack and hole, ensuring the repairs were level with the rest of the surface. This not only restores the floor’s structural integrity but also ensures a seamless finish once the final coating is applied.

Step 3: Laying Epoxy Flex SL

The star of this transformation was Epoxy Flex SL, a self-leveling coating that offers both flexibility and robustness. This material is ideal for commercial spaces due to its resilience against heavy traffic and mechanical impacts.

  • Mixing and Application: Epoxy Flex SL requires precise mixing to achieve the perfect consistency. Our skilled technicians carefully measured and mixed the components, ensuring an even distribution of the epoxy across the floor.

  • Self-Leveling: One of the standout features of Epoxy Flex SL is its self-leveling property. As it is applied, it naturally spreads out to form a smooth, flat surface, effortlessly covering any minor imperfections in the substrate.

  • Curing: After application, the epoxy is left to cure. During this period, it hardens to form a durable, seamless surface. This process typically takes 24-48 hours, depending on the ambient conditions.

The Outcome

The result was a stunning transformation. The once dilapidated floor now boasts a sleek, modern finish that not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the space but also significantly improves its functionality. The new resin floor is:

  • Durable: Built to withstand the rigors of a busy commercial environment.

  • Seamless: A smooth, unbroken surface that is easy to clean and maintain.

  • Safe: The repaired cracks and holes eliminate trip hazards, providing a safer environment for workers and visitors.

The client was thrilled with the outcome, noting the professionalism and efficiency of our team. The new flooring not only met but exceeded their expectations, contributing to a more inviting and productive work environment.
