There are a number of reasons for painting plant room floors that bridge the differing aspects of operational issues, waterproofing and safety.
Plant room floors are regularly subjected to water spillages that can leak through to the floors below via cracks, bolt holes and service protrusions through the floor.
Pumathane HB is a high build flexible polyurethane resin floor coating with a dry film thickness equivalent to that of 12-14 coats of standard floor paint.
It has excellent adhesion and fills and seals any cracks in the floor. Being elastomeric, if there are any live cracks in the floor that open and close as the plant room warms up and cools down, it will (within certain limits) move with these cracks thereby retaining the intehrity of the coating.
The ability of any plant room floor paint to flex with live cracks is directly proportional to its thickness - the thicker the film thickness the greater the ability to move with the cracks.
Pumathane HB is available in a wide range of colours and has a full gloss finish that improves the lighting in a plant room where light values are often limited by the layout of the plant.
Pumathane HB provides a tough, hard wearing flexible plant room floor paint with excellent abrasion and chemical resistance properties.
Pumathane HB flexible polyurethane resin plant room floor paint is a Type 3 floor finish as categorised in BS 8204-6 - this is the highest rating for floor paints - beyond that we move up to thicker screeds and floor toppings from 2mm in thickness upwards.
Thinner factory floor paints categorised as Type 1 (ordinary single pack floor paints) and Type 2 (thin epoxy and polyurethane resin systems) offer less than than half of the film thickness of a Type 3 factory floor painting system such as Pumatect. With floor preparation and application costs being broadly similar across all Types 1, 2 and 3 the uplift in price to a Type 3 coating is for materials costs only.
