8 specific types of flooring applications:

Resin flooring is classified into eight specific types, each having their own particular performance characteristics, varying in thickness and surface finish as follows:

Type 1 - Floor Seal
Applied in two or more coats.    
Light Duty.
Up to 150 µm thickness.

Type 2 - Floor Coating
Applied in two or more coats.    
Light Duty / Medium Duty.
Between 150 µm to 300 µm thickness.

Type 3 - High Build Floor Coating
Applied in two or more coats.    
Medium Duty .
Between 300 µm to 1000 µm thickness.

Type 4 - Multi - Layer Flooring
Aggregate dressed systems based on multiple layers of floor coatings or flow-applied floorings, often described as ‘sandwich’ systems.
Medium Duty / Heavy Duty.
> 2 mm thickness.

Type 5 - Flow Applied Flooring
Often referred to as ‘self-smoothing’ or ‘self-levelling’ flooring and has a smooth surface.
Medium Duty / Heavy Duty.
2 mm to 3 mm thickness.

Type 6 - Resin Screed Flooring
Trowel-finished, heavily filled systems, generally incorporating a surface seal coat to minimise porosity.
Medium Duty / Heavy Duty.
> 4 mm thickness.

Type 7 - Heavy Duty Flowable Flooring

Has a smooth surface.
Heavy Duty / Very Heavy Duty.
4 mm to 6 mm  thickness.

Type 8 - Heavy Duty Resin Flooring
Trowel-finished, aggregate filled systems effectively impervious throughout their thickness.
Very Heavy Duty.
> 6 mm thickness.

 

 

Benefits of using AEA (QLD) applications:

The benefits of using Accredited Epoxy Applicators P/L flooring applications over other market products becomes apparent when a comparison is carried out.

As an example of how effective our applications are, the following table demonstrates clearly the advantages in using epoxy based flooring:

(1) 3 Minimum, and more depending on requirment and finish
(2) If same tile(s) are available otherwise a complete change is required 
(3) Only requires colour change layer
(4) Only if correct adhesive applied under tiling
(5) Cheapest quote based on 3mm vinyl on concrete surface, no preparation
(6) Based on 2 coats
(7) Cheapest quote obtained and not including tile costs 
(8) Based on surface preparation and 2 coats and depending on area covered
