We installed 220㎡ high build epoxy resin coating at a motorsport facility in Northampton.

Motorsports garages often deal with various chemicals, including oils, fuels, and cleaning agents. Resin floors are highly resistant to these substances, preventing damage and maintaining a pristine appearance.

Key benefits of resin flooring in automotive facilities

Durability

Resin floors are exceptionally durable and can withstand the heavy loads and impacts common in motorsports garages. They are resistant to abrasion, ensuring longevity even under constant use.

Chemical Resistance

Motorsports garages often deal with various chemicals, including oils, fuels, and cleaning agents. Resin floors are highly resistant to these substances, preventing damage and maintaining a pristine appearance.

Easy Maintenance

The smooth, non-porous surface of resin floors makes them easy to clean and maintain. Spills can be quickly wiped up, and the floor resists stains, reducing the time and effort required for upkeep.

Enhanced Safety

Resin floors can be customised with anti-slip additives to improve traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls. This is particularly important in a garage environment where safety is paramount.

Aesthetics

Resin floors provide a sleek, professional look, available in a variety of colors and finishes. This allows for customisation to match the garage’s design and branding, creating an attractive and functional workspace.

Cost-Effective

While the initial cost of installing a resin floor may be higher than some alternatives, its durability and low maintenance needs make it a cost-effective choice in the long run. It reduces the need for frequent repairs and replacements.

Installation Process of Resin Floors

The process of installing a resin floor in a motorsports garage involves several key steps to ensure a high-quality finish. Here is an overview of the typical installation process:

1. Surface Preparation

The existing floor surface must be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. This involves removing any existing coatings, dirt, grease, and debris. Any cracks or imperfections in the concrete are repaired to create a smooth, even base.

2. Priming

A primer is applied to the prepared surface to enhance the adhesion of the resin. This step is crucial for ensuring the resin bonds properly to the concrete, providing a durable and long-lasting finish.

3. Mixing the Resin

The resin components are mixed according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This typically involves combining a resin and a hardener to create the final product. Accurate mixing is essential for achieving the desired performance characteristics.

4. Application

The mixed resin is applied to the prepared surface using rollers or squeegees. Depending on the desired thickness and finish, multiple coats may be applied. Each coat is allowed to cure before applying the next.

5. Adding Finishes

Once the base resin layer is applied, additional finishes can be added. This might include anti-slip additives, color chips, or decorative patterns. These finishes are applied while the resin is still wet to ensure proper adhesion.

6. Curing

After the final coat and finishes are applied, the floor must cure for a specified period. This curing time can vary based on the type of resin used and environmental conditions. It’s important to avoid heavy traffic on the floor during this time to ensure optimal results.

Conclusion

Installing a resin floor in a motorsports garage provides numerous benefits, including durability, chemical resistance, easy maintenance, enhanced safety, and aesthetic appeal. The installation process, though detailed, ensures a high-quality finish that can withstand the demands of a busy garage environment.
