Production and storage halls are spaces where designing and choosing the right floor is a big challenge. Due to the high application load provided in such spaces, the final floor covering must be strong and resistant to chemical and mechanical actions.
The two-component, epoxy floor DRACO FLOOR 800 meets the required conditions and is characterized by excellent mechanical properties, tear strength, abrasion resistance and elasticity. In addition to being available as a thick-layer or thin-layer floor, the product can be applied as an anti-dust coating.
Learn how to properly apply DRACO FLOOR 800 epoxy floor;
- The first step in the preparation of concrete and cement substrates is rough surface grinding. Sanding removes the surface layer that is loosely attached to the substrate and opens hidden gas pockets and cracks.
- Also, loose parts of the substrate must be removed and reprofiled with DRACO FIX 140 repair mortar. Cracks must be opened by sanding the entire length to the upper zone of the reinforcement or up to 1/2 thickness if it is a cement screed. Transverse to the cracks, the slits open at an angle of 60 ° to the depth of the crack opening. The sanded surface and open cracks with slots are thoroughly cleaned of dust residues by vacuuming.
- Dust cracks with slots are filled with DRACO PRIMO 800 epoxy resin which is saturated with dry quartz sand. This is followed by fine sanding of the substrate, followed by thorough vacuuming.
- A layer of epoxy primer DRACO PRIMO 800 is applied to the prepared concrete substrate. The role of the primer is to completely “close” the substrate by filling all air pockets in the substrate that can lead to blisters or holes in the floor finishes. If anti-slip of the substrate is required, quartz sand is sprinkled on the fresh primer to saturation or the sand is mixed with the primer. The primer can also be used to thicken the floor layers, which increases its mechanical characteristics.
- After the primer has dried, unbound sand is swept and sucked in and DRACO FLOOR 800 epoxy floor layers are applied.
The choice of floor thickness depends on the purpose of the floor, so in areas where heavy traffic takes place (cars, trucks, forklifts and machines) a thicker floor will be made than in areas where only pedestrian traffic takes place. If anti-slip flooring is required, the top coat of DRACO FLOOR 800 is applied in two coats, the first coat of which is sprinkled with quartz sand. The epoxy floor can be pigmented with a color of your choice.
Epoxy floors are very resistant to mechanical damage as well as to acids and cleaning agents. They are used in areas where there is a possibility of large loads on the final layer. If you are looking for just such a floor, which perfectly answers all technical and aesthetic questions, DRACO FLOOR systems are the choice you will not go wrong with.
Use only quality materials and pay the waterproofing the attention it deserves. DRACO waterproofing systems are designed precisely to make your facilities safe and comfortable to live in.
