Self-levelling flooring for automotive industry
This state-of-the-art motorsport preparation facility required a floor cable of withstanding some unique demands. John Lord chose to install Epigard SL, a system developed and manufactured by John Lord creating a durable, self-levelling, epoxy resin floor.
Before installing the resin floor, John Lord prepped the existing substrate floor and coated the whole area with their Uragard SC2 concrete sealer. The sealer provided a clear film, which reinforces the concrete matrix and provided an extremely hard, non-dusting surface for the self-levelling resin floor system.
The Epigard SL resin floor provides a smooth, uniform and seamless finish, ideal in an environment that must be clean at all times in order to create safe working conditions and high-performance products. It incorporates a high level of chemical resistance which is a necessity when strong de-greasing compounds are present during clean downs.
Epigard SL is an incredibly strong, impact-resistant flooring system, capable of withstanding the heavy traffic commonly found in automotive industries.
The versatility of the floor allowed for the majority of the facility to be covered even around existing machinery such as rolling roads. The neutral grey colour installed on this project creates a glare-free working environment and is highly colour stable.
Epigard SL is FeRFA Type 5 – Compliant with BS 8204-6, Section 6.2
