The Achtis Group has provided its epoxy base coat sealed with a hard wearing polyurethane sealer for various areas of Franklin sixth form college in Grimsby.
The job required a seamless and hard wearing floor surface that was easy to clean and would add to the contemporary look of the project. The high levels of UV from the floor to ceiling windows also required a photo stable polyurethane. The floor was primed with EP 70, coated in EP 104 and sealed with APU 46 Matt Sealer in Anthracite.
As well as it's photo-stable qualities APU 46 was selected as it is extremely resistant to water based solutions and diluted acids and alkalis. The product is very resistant to staining from household chemicals, strongly dyeing foodstuffs and drinks like beer, red wine or coke so is ideal for this situation. The matt surface also reduces the light dispersion of the surface and reduces glare and obvious marking.
