Epoxy Flooring is no easy task, and relating to the previous article, “D.I.Y or H.I.R.E?” – there are several reasons why an Epoxy Flooring can fail if not done properly. To avoid a costly re-do, hire a team that is confident, experienced, and well known. Below are a few important steps to not be taken lightly, and that REDRHINO will never skip.
1. Poor surface preparation. If the surface is not properly dusted, clean and dry, then the resin will not stick. In order to make sure this doesn’t happen, REDRHINO – usually with diamond grinding or bead blasting – prepare the substrate to make the surface ready for resin.
2. Humidity. Solvent-based epoxy does not mix well with humidity. Again, if the surface is not dry, or if there is a pipe dripping, it will severely devastate the epoxy. Because REDRHINO knows all about this, they take the important step in double checking the humidity levels, and making adjustments based on the levels.
3. Contaminated floors. With old installations (food and drink factories, car service shops, or workshops) that want the epoxy installed over the old floor, it is incredibly important the that service is suitable for epoxy. Meaning it is free of grease, oil and any other residues. The floor must be cleaned properly for the resin to bond as intended. REDRHINO has the years of experience to know when the harmful remnants are excluded.
4. Faulty Resin/Hardener Mix. If the resin and hardener were not mixed well, disregarding either the ratio of resin:hardener, or not mixing the material for enough time to cut costs and labor time, then the resin will remain in a sticky or soft state for longer than needed, allowing dust and damage to be done. REDRHINO uses high quality products, we trust the materials that are used, and we back our work by a 7 year warranty.
Those are a few of the things that could go wrong, but with REDRHINO by your side, those are a few things that won’t.Give us a call today @ 888-293-2681 – we’re happy to answer any questions or provide details for your next big project!
