FLAKE EPOXY FLOORING FOR MECHANICAL WORKSHOP FLOORS
Mechanical workshops require a flooring solution that is both hard-wearing and long lasting. Epoxy flake floors are the preferred chosen flooring solution for workshops due to their ability to withstand heavy wear and tear, resistance to chemicals and stains, and long-lasting durability.
Benefits of using flake epoxy flooring for workshops are
Durability Epoxy flake floors are extremely durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, machinery, and equipment.
Chemical Resistance Epoxy flake floors are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including oil, grease and solvents, making them a great choice for industrial and manufacturing facilities.
Easy to Clean Epoxy flake floors are non-porous and seamless, making them easy to clean and maintain. They can be swept, mopped, or even pressure washed without the risk of water damage or staining.
Customizable Epoxy flake floors come in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to customize the look of your flooring to suit your specific needs and style preferences.
Slip resistance Epoxy coatings can be designed with slip-resistant additives to improve safety in the workshop. This is especially important in areas where spills are common.
Overall, epoxy flake floors can be a great choice for workshops due to their durability, easy maintenance, and resistance to chemicals and stains. However, proper installation and maintenance are key to ensuring a long-lasting and safe flooring solution.

Step 4 Return within 24 hours of applying the primer to remove rubbish and imperfections (by grinding down high sections and patching any low sections)
This is an important step for if the coating is left uneven, this will show though your final coat. If this step if not completed within 30 – 36 hours (depending on temperature) of applying the previous coat, the floor will need to be scratched using an 80 grit sand paper.
Step 5 Apply an even coat of the coloured epoxy by rolling the product from wall to wall. Immediately after the floor has been completed, start the next step to broadcast the flakes
We recommend always having a minimum of two people when completing an epoxy floor, this is to ensure the product does not begin to cure before you have finished broadcasting the flake. If there is no one to help, we would suggest applying in sections based on works time and pot life of product being used.
Step 6 Begin broadcasting the flakes immediately after the base coat has been applied then allow to cure
We recommend broadcasting the flakes to the point of rejection, this means that you will keep apply the flake until the epoxy cannot have any more flake added to it. This is beneficial as a full epoxy flake system will hide imperfections for longer with its design. Wearing spike shoes to walk over the epoxy is essential with flake epoxy flooring, however you must apply safety practices and be cautious of injury.
Step 8 Return within 24 hours and apply the final clear coat
If you are using a high body, self-levelling 100% solids epoxy, one squeegee coat will be enough. Using waterbased products, polyurathanes or polyaspartic products will require an additional coat. . Using thinners in the final (or finish) coat is not recommended. It is always recommended to back roll the product against the natural light to assist with achieving a more uniform finish.
Epoxy Glitter can be mixed into the final coat to create a stunning, eye-catching effect on the floor.
Antislip media can be added to the topcoat to achieve a higher slip rating.
Your floor will be trafficable after 24-48 hours and heavy items such as cars, boats or trailers shouldn’t be parked on the floor for 7 days after application of the final coat

Sean attended a job that we were doing to not only deliver product purchased but also to spend time with my staff to ensure that they were familar with the new product that we were using. I found Sean to be diligent in every aspect. He also gave advise on different procedures new to us. I could not recomend him and his team highly enough.
Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the staff member that helped but he went to great lengths to help ensure I got the right product for the job I needed. What’s better was the product recommended was excellent and worked perfectly.
Thank you so much team! 100% RECOMMEND FOR ANY EPOXY FLOOR COATING NEEDSI wanted to redo my flooring and had no idea where to start. I was researching all flooring products, to try and see what would be the best, most manageable DIY floor renovation I could do, that proved frustrating in itself but when I got up to researching about epoxy flooring OH MY I was amazed! Their website alone had so much clear information and instructions! I've never seen anything like it! From photos, to step by step, to even epoxy flooring packages that just have everything I need! It was incredible to finally see someone just put all the information they know and give you genuine advice.I then called and spoke to Ryan who just answered any other question I had regarding colours, whether or not liquid marble epoxy or epoxy flake systems were a better choice, etc. It was so wonderful to finally have someone provide actual advice and not just try to make the highest sale.After that consultation I went to the showroom to which again, all the industrial flooring and epoxy flooring samples were on the ground of their warehouse so you could actually see how the systems hold up! I saw the metallic epoxy, flake epoxy and single coloured ones to visually see how it looked and held up against time. Like just how amazing, genuine and just pure customer focused are you* to provide such a display for people to see. It was such an* incredible experience!So clean, organised and just all round amazing. I'm still in awe. The only difficulty was waiting for the call back. But after seeing how much they took their time to make sure I understood everything, I can see why I didn't get an immediate answer.Thank you so much team for helping me get what I needed. I appreciate it so much! enjoy some of the photos I got from my excitement 🙂
I really enjoy the welcoming experience with all the staff at Sydney industrial coatings and recommend this business to anyone looking for products or advice ...thankyou Alex Ryan uncle and Sean ❤️❤️❤️
