Industrial Floor Coatings from RESPOL

Industrial floor paints are a necessity in workshops, showrooms, and walkways, They are also essential in a laboratory, an aircraft hangar or a warehouse. The range of demands for heavy-duty resins depends on the use to which the environment is dedicated. Some require a more decorative appearance with custom coloured finishes, while other surfaces need to be resistant to chemicals or heat resistant.

Ease of maintenance is a factor in most flooring systems. Common needs are for performance and protection. Industrial resins are by their nature hygienic because they are seamless, negating the entrapment of bacteria in the seams.

As such, we can install any industrial flooring treatment from sealing a bare concrete surface to repairing a damaged substrate and bringing it up to standard and installing a new resin system. Respol can apply the perfect protective flooring systems to concrete, steel, wood, asphalt and quarry.

Any Respol floor installation begins with the substrate and once it meets the highest standard, our nationwide technicians begin with dust free preparation. The substrate is primed to produce a surface that is free from residue and contaminants.

When it comes to epoxy floor coating, beyond choices such as gloss or matt and the colour of the floor paint, there are many other attributes that can be added to the epoxy resin. The nature of the chemical reaction that creates an inert heavy-duty resin, is that additives such as aggregate can be applied to create an anti-slip (or to use the more correct term, low-slip) surface, or other additives to create an anti-static floor. There are limitless variations in the type of flooring that can be supplied and installed.


The substrate preparation is essential so that a durable bond can be achieved between the priming system and the substrate. Once the priming system and the substrate are completely free from any residue or other contaminants, the floor is ready for the application of the surface coating system.
