Project Details

The Sarina Sugar Shed is a local tourist attraction that operates as a miniature working sugar mill and distillery. The existing flooring had been exposed to aggressive chemical corrosion (due to aggressive properties of sugar acids) and had begun to deteriorate and break down. Bayset proposed a Hychem Epoxy Flooring System that provided a moisture tolerant, durable and chemical resistant solution. Smart Seal Waterproofing and Epoxy Coatings provided a professional and timely application as to avoid disruption to the Sugar Shed’s daily operations.


The Solution

After grinding the exisiting flooring and preparing the surface Hychem E100 Epoxy Primer, moisture tolerant primer, was applied to the entire area. This prepared the surface for the application of Hychem GP Epoxy Resin to repair spalled and cracked areas. Hychem SF12FG was then applied as the final wear surface creating a robust non slip surface that has outstanding chemical resistance.
