FAQs About Polyurethane Floor Coatings

Although typically epoxies are one of the most popular floor coatings for commercial and industrial sites, polyurethane floor coatings are still regarded by many as the most reliable and economical choice when it comes to a high-quality floor finish. A polyurethane floor finish is scratch resistant, can withstand heavy impact, and abrasion and is a valuable choice when considering which floor coating to use in your facility.

What is a Polyurethane Coating?

A polyurethane floor is a highly flexible, highly abrasion-resistant floor coating that is known for its shine and longevity. Currently, Polyurethane floor coatings are one of the most historically used products in building and architectural planning. They are known to be highly flexible and allow for high levels of foot traffic and large machinery usage. In addition, Polyurethane floors will remain glossy and new-looking even if in contact with abrasives like glass, sand, or concrete.

What Are the Common Problems with Polyurethane Floor Finish?

Even though there are many reasons why Polyurethane floor finish is still a popular choice, there are several drawbacks. A polyurethane floor coating is such a thick compound, hence it must be applied in very thin layers to avoid non-uniform thickness and lumping. Further still, because a polyurethane floor finish must be applied in such a thin layer, it will not cover imperfections in the underlying substrate as well as an epoxy system might. In this case, it is better for an epoxy primer layer to be installed first, with a polyurethane coating on top.

What Are Some Uses for Polyurethane Coatings?

Polyurethane coatings are excellent choices for warehouses and Industrial complexes where large machinery will be stored. These coatings are also the ideal flooring finish for veterinary labs, and animal laboratory facilities. Additionally, since Polyurethane coatings are so durable and glossy, they are commonly suitable for use as, auto garage floors and aircraft hangars.

Stucco for Wall Color and Texture

Stucco is a combination of cementitious ingredients, aggregate, and water.It is a popular interior wall finish for bathrooms,kitchens and plasters.It can be used on new interior plaster,on sound previously painted interior surfaces prepared with primer,and when coating pre-fifties walls with possible acid/alkali reaction. The key ingredient,white cement makes it extremely versatile, giving it the hardened properties of concrete that provides an economical hard surface that is rot, rust, and fire resistant, which can be colored and finished in a wide range of textures to adorn any architectural style.

Color is determined by selecting cement and aggregate color, and quite often modified by adding mineral oxide pigments to the plaster mix. White Portland cement makes it possible to achieve the widest range of colors for the stucco finish.Below is Fossilcote Lime paste blended stucco wall finish:

Texture adds dimensions to your projects. It can be used to provide highlights, depth, continuity, segmentation, and even achieve the look of a completely different construction material such as brick, or stone masonry construction. Texture is achieved by selecting aggregate size, controlling finish mix consistency, and using special treatment techniques during and after application of the finish coat plaster. To confirm the suitability of a desired color and texture, be sure to ask your plasterer to provide a sample panel for evaluation prior to starting work.

The team from Fossilcote Limited prepared the concrete surface carefully to ensure optimum adhesion for the new flooring using concrete prep grinder machine to remove layers of old paint.

The damaged concrete and cracks were then repaired using epoxy resin mortar compound. When preparation work was complete, the entire floor was applied with a coat of Fossilcote high build epoxy resin in a light-grey color. The resin floor was completed with additional coat of Fossilcote high build epoxy resin in a safety light-grey color to create the required effect.

HACCP and Food Safe Flooring: What You Need To know

Food safety must be carefully monitored at every step of food production. Agencies and governments in Kenya and South Africa are now imposing stringent regulations governing the conditions in facilities that process foods and beverages. In South Africa, following the directive by the local government, most food processors have embarked on the HACCP plan.

Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a system designed to identify and control hazards which might occur anywhere in a food processing operation. It is an internationally recognized benchmark of food safety management, and as such is an important set of criteria for businesses eager to give customers confidence in the safety of the food processing operation.

To meet the HACCP International standard, we design our building products to allow for adequate drainage and cleaning. Fossilcote resinous system installations allow for the creation or correction of the floor’s slope toward the drain, and can include an integral floor-to-wall cove base. This eliminates ninety-degree angles in the floor-wall structure, in support of more efficient cleaning and overall facility hygiene.

As Africa’s leading resin flooring manufacturer, meeting the ISO standard as well as implementing the HACCP plan means quite a lot for us as a company. This accreditation ensures that our clients in the food and beverage sector operating a HACCP based food safety programme can specify our flooring materials eco-friendly in the knowledge that they will meet the relevant regulatory authority’s standards for safe procurement, production and processing as well as the requirements of the world’s leading quality and food safety standards.

Fossilcote Limited Business Development Director, Craig Robertson, said: “Our range of antimicrobial enhanced Epoxy floors has been able to achieve the HACCP International certification thanks to its ability to deliver a long list of strict food industry flooring requirements.”

HACCP guidelines state that a seamless and impervious finish must be maintained at all times, even when subjected to a large-scale food processing facility’s intense working environment. Fossilcote flooring system has been specifically formulated to provide a surface that will comply with food industry regulations for an extended period of time despite the sector’s inherently challenging conditions.

To provide food manufacturers with a floor that goes above and beyond the highest food safety standards, Fossilcote treats their floor with silver ion and polygiene technology. This silver-ion based bactericidal additive empowers the floor finish and has the ability to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria in contact with the surface.

The Polygiene agent formulation in our floor finish means that physical damage to the coating won’t create a safe haven for contaminants that’s out of reach of the bacteria killing flooring ingredient.

How to Apply Cement Paint onto Exterior Walls

Painting the exterior walls of your home requires you to follow the same procedures:

Cement-Naturals-2

Pre-painting work:

For exterior surfaces, it is very important to undertake repairs of any wall imperfections before commencing on painting job. The most common problem with exterior wall painting is cracks in the wall. Avoid filling compound while painting exterior surfaces.

Surface Preparation:

Newly plastered surfaces must be allowed to cure for at least 35 to 45 days before wall painting. Previously oil painted surfaces should be sanded thoroughly to remove loose particles and with matt for better adhesion. Exterior rough surfaces, previously coated with cement paint, should be wire brushed and washed with water thoroughly and dried completely.Also ensure that the surface is chalk-free before painting it.

 Painting:

First prime the new surface. Then apply the Exterior Wall Primer. Finally, apply two coats of top coat paint on the surface. It is recommended that horizontal surfaces like the tops of walls must be given an additional coat for greater protection.

Wall maintenance:

Most wall paints are washable. They can be periodically cleaned with mild soap water solution. However, some walls may have permanent or stubborn stains that would make it difficult to be removed. To minimize such stains, clean the walls immediately before the stains dry up. Remember to check the walls periodically for flaking or peeling paint. In case of moisture detection, resolve the problem immediately, so as to minimize damage to the area.

NB: The newly painted surface should not be cleaned in less than 2 weeks after application of finished coat.
