Self Leveling Epoxy Floors

Self-leveling epoxy flooring is a type of industrial floor coating that is typically used in commercial and industrial settings. It is a multi-layer system consisting of a primer, a self-leveling epoxy layer, and a protective topcoat.

The self-leveling epoxy layer is applied in a thin, even layer and is able to self-level, or flow out to a smooth, even surface, regardless of the condition of the underlying concrete. This means that it can be used to smooth out rough or uneven concrete surfaces, making them suitable for heavy traffic and machinery.

Self-leveling epoxy flooring is known for its durability and resistance to impact, chemicals, and abrasion. It is easy to clean and maintain, and can be used in a wide range of settings, including warehouses, factories, auto showrooms, laboratories, and more. The final surface is also can be glossy and can add decorative flair as well.

It is typically applied by professional contractor with experience in handling and mixing the epoxy coating which commonly takes a couple of days for the completion. It will also require the surface to be prepared by cleaning and grinding before application.

Self Leveling Epoxy Floor Project

Existing Conditions: Con Edison contacted our epoxy flooring contracting team to install a self-leveling epoxy floor in a  power station that would be providing power for New York City. This space would house a massive generator and its fixtures. They needed a floor that would remain strong for a long time because it would be sitting under equipment that could not be moved. This project was new construction so our initial preparation was minimal.

Preparation of Existing Conditions: We performed a diamond grinding procedure on the entire substrate to ensure a good bond for our epoxy aggregate flooring. We also edged out the drains and perimeter with hand grinders. We then created keyed edges at all of the termination points such as at doorways and around drains. 

Products Installed: To produce the finished floor, we first primed the surface with an epoxy primer. Once the primer was within the cure window we installed a self-leveling epoxy flooring system.  We also broadcast 40-60 mesh silica sand into the epoxy to create an non-slip floor coating texture and add to its strength. Finally, we sealed the system by top-coating it with a chemical-resistant epoxy coating.

Conclusion: Working together with our client and installation team we were able to complete this installation during Con Edison's holiday shutdown allowing them to be back on their anti-slip epoxy coating system fully operational when they got back in after the new year.
