High Build Epoxy is a floor finish in the form of a floor paint. It has been designed to decorate the desired area as much as it has to offer protection to any substrate you may choose to have it laid on. At DCF, we make use of what we, and the industry, have found to be the highest quality and most hard-wearing Epoxy floor paints. The two-part mixture is key to its potential and what may allow this floor paint finish to become the perfect surface for all your requirements, so please call our team with any and all questions!
During the entire process from planning to completion, we can and will be there to offer the best advice we have. It is more important to us to create the best final product in terms of quality and satisfaction for you. To achieve the aforementioned, we like to ask and answer as many questions from you as is possible, such as:
The ease of application to such a variety of substrates is key to High Build Epoxy being such a good surfacing option, this is allowed by its clever chemical makeup. Allowing it such benefits as:
Solvent free – therefore practically odour free even through application
Only one coat needed – in most cases
Excellent chemical resistance
Seamless highly glossed finish
This two-part system consists of an Epoxy Resin mixed with a hardener, the two are thoroughly mixed on site. The hardener acts as an epoxy curing agent, and the subsequent chemical reaction results in a permanently hardened resin material. High Build Epoxy derives its advantages from precisely this reaction, for example, the reaction creates a greater than usual level of solids in the resultant paint, allowing a thick coating per application. This explains its ability to very often do the job with only one coat, meaning it performs better in many situations. Perhaps there is also cracking in the surface that needs to be adequately enclosed and protected, or a fully sealed surface is a requirement.
Ease of maintenance can often be overlooked, however as it is something that will need to be done repeatedly, its labour costs can be significantly reduced by the quicker and simpler it is to do.
This is not to mention the effect this will have on its longevity, a surface that is easy to keep in good nick as a result tends to be maintained with a higher standard of cleanliness. At DC, we carefully inspect the areas where you may desire High Build Epoxy, and consult with our expert technicians to ensure that the flooring we provide is best suited to the type of cleaning and stresses it may have to go through.
High Build Epoxy is also well-known for its toughness and long-lasting resistance to impacts, making it suitable for heavy traffic areas. It can perform well in conditions that involve forklifts, and industrial floors where there is constant movement and burden on the floor.

High Build Epoxy flooring generally progresses through these three steps, surface preparation, mixing and then application. The surface preparation stage is the most tedious and perhaps the most crucial, there are many things to consider. However, it can be said for all surface preparation works, that a clean and dry substrate is needed, as well as it being free from any
contaminants. The mixing will then also need to be done with care, a mixing paddle or electric drill is used to ensure uniform colour and consistency. To finish, it is best advised to complete the application when the base temperature of the site is closer to room temperature, with the majority of the surface being one coat applied by a roller.
High Build Epoxy is a highly versatile material, an exhaustive list of where it can be used may not be possible. However, its popularity continues to grow in such settings as warehouses, hangers, industrial units, food preparation centres, and any number of floors where a sturdy and long-lasting floor is required.
The needs of the commercial and industrial sectors are also met adeptly by a High Build Epoxy flooring option. The materials excellent adhesion to concrete and steel, and easy to maintain hygiene levels are all what help make it so attractive to businesses that need expert application and the bare minimum downtime whilst application takes place. The chemical resistant nature of High Build Epoxy lends itself to use in any environment where harsh substances are used, allowing it to prevent problems such as solvent leaching. These are a few of the considerations that DC Group ensures are carried out, to always deliver the most suitable finish for your requirements.
