Overview




  • Property Type: Residential

  • Project Type: Philanthropic

  • Scope: Application of epoxy flooring

  • Area m2:  9 x 4

  • Category: Flooring



 



Products Used




  • Aquapoxy 315 (Koala Colour)

  • Duralok 350



 



Project Details



Jane began operating as a registered carer in 2007, and since then, her business has expanded to a point where she required a space big enough to run a licenced childcare centre. Janes Daycare Centre is a big part of the Jimboomba Community.  After receiving council approval to build a 9 x 4m2 shed at the back of her residence, the Bayset team volunteered their time and expertise to help with waterproofing of toilet facilities and application of epoxy flooring. Aquapoxy 315 and Duralok 350 were selected as the space required a professional feel but also needed to be durable for the kids to play.



 



Methodology



Step 1 – Preparation

Clean surface. Tape up all areas. Have a brush ready for cutting in and a roller set up ready to start. Box all flake together and ensure the colour is correct and well blended.This should be done as gently as possible to ensure minimal breakage. 



Step 2 - Application



Mix three parts of 315A epoxy with one part of 315B hardener by volume not by weight.  It is important to scrape out as much of part B as possible to ensure a correct mix ratio. An incorrect mix ratio will decrease pot life dramatically or it will not cure at all. Mix well preferably using an air stirrer or high speed drill. 

Mix for no more than one minute. To increase pot life pour the mix onto the floor –do not keep in the mixing container, by keeping the mix in the pot it will gel up much faster.  Spread the base coat out using a squeegee or roll on with a 12 mm nap synthetic roller.  Coverage will be approximately 3m2 per litre depending on surface porosity.  

If the 315 Aquapoxy is spread out to thin it may dry patchy and the flake may not stick consistently. Remove all masking tape while the epoxy is still wet or the tape will dry into the coating. Use spiked shoes to walk on the epoxy if required. Check and box all the flake to ensure an even colour. 

Apply the 315 Aquapoxy to an appropriate area where you can easily broadcast the flake, remove gloves and broadcast the flake over the wet epoxy.  Leave half a metre edge of epoxy to roll next pack on to. Do not leave a ‘fat edge’ as this will show through in the final coat. Broadcast flake. Throw the flake high into the air so that it can float to the floor.   The flake or particle must cover all areas of Epoxy in excess so you cannot see any of the basecoat. DO NOT WALK ON FLAKE AFTER BROADCAST. Allow to dry overnight.



Step 3 – Top Coats



Final top coats. 

Collect excess flake or particle. 

This could be carried out by using a combination of a leaf blower-vacand broom.  With a pole sander or equivalent sand the area to remove and sharp edges or rough patches.  If the surface is not smooth the final gloss level may not have a consistent sheen level. Vacuum over the surface again to remove any dust particles. Mask around the floor edges. Mix Clear topcoat at a 3 to 1 mix and apply with a 12ml nap roller.  Do not whip up or air rate when applying. Do not thin. Apply at 5m2 per litre.  Allow overnight before applying final coat.

Overview




  • Property Type: Commercial

  • Project Type: Restoration

  • Scope: Poor design initially, floors too weak for warehouse use

  • Contractor: Acid Resistant Constructions

  • Area m2:  550

  • Category: Flooring



 



Products Used




  • Hychem E300SL

  • Hychem Supafloor

  • Hychem SF12FG

  • Hychem Hyflex NS



 



Project Details



Bayset were tasked with upgrading an existing industrial warehouse floor. The initial flooring was poorly designed and after 3 years had become too rough to drive on. The total floor area of 233 square metres (warehouse runway) is utilised to house industrial materials and is subjected to constant heavy mechanical traffic. A quick turnaround was required so business could continue as soon as possible. The project was undertaken over the Easter long weekend with the warehouse closing on Thursday and reopening on Tuesday.



 



Methodology



Surface preparation: the surface of the concrete was prepared by a combination of shot blasting and diamond grinding. All loose material, surface laitance, contaminants and or curing compounds were completely removed. Skim coat: Due to the CSP left from the shot blasting the surface was then skimmed with Hychem E300SL blended with select silica sand. Due to the depth of the voids the skim coat was applied three times in order for the product to level. Once dry the surface was then lightly abraded with a terrazzo grinder to remove any surface imperfections. First pigmented coat: the Hychem Supafloor resin and hardener were mixed together in the correct ratios using a mechanical variable speed helical mixer for 3 minutes. No solvent was added. The mixed product was then poured onto the floor and spread by roller and back rolled to a uniform finish. The coverage rates were 0.5 - 1ltr / m2. Once dry the surface was then lightly abraded with a terrazzo grinder to remove any surface imperfections. Final pigmented coat: Prior to blending resin and hardener and to improve the anti-slip the resin was filled with 12% by weight CA60# white aluminium oxide and then stirred. Then Hychem SF12FG resin and hardener were mixed together in the correct ratios using a mechanical variable speed helical mixer for 1 minute. Then add 10% solvent to assist with application and mix for a further 2 minutes. The mixed product was then poured onto the floor and spread by roller and back rolled to a uniform finish. The coverage was approximately 5m2 / litre. Hychem NS - joints recut and repaired: the existing floor joints were resaw cut to approximately 10mm x 10mm and then filled with Hychem Hyflex NS pigmented a similar colour as the floor. Some floor joints were cut to a 50mm width due to the amount of expansion occurring.



 



Result & Testimonial



Bayset were able to provide an extremely hard wearing, tough and durable surface with high mechanical strength. The completed flooring offers excellent resistance to chemicals and its smooth, high gloss finish makes it easy to clean.
