Sikafloor supplied a seamless, rapid-apply, non-slip surface to ensure production at a Rolls Royce car assembly plant continued without interruption. Contractor, Zircon Flooring, was chosen to refurbish 14,000m2 of industrial flooring at the vehicle production site in Chichester, West Sussex.
The client required a surface with a detailed, high-quality finish. With durability and low-maintenance among its many other benefits, Sikafloor’s high-quality resin system proved ideal for the project. To overcome random static charges which can affect sensitive electrical components and wreak havoc on a busy car production line, Sika provided its Sikafloor®-262AS, a two-part electrostatically conductive textured epoxy coating for the floor’s refurbishment.
Sikafloor®-262 AS is a decorative and protective anti-static coating which is available in an unlimited choice of colour shades. The unique high-build system comprises Sikafloor®-161 primer, Sikafloor®-220W conductive coat, Sikafloor®-262 AS wearing course, and Sikafloor®-263 SL, a two-part, multipurpose binder based on epoxy resin.
Once levels were checked and grinded as required, Sikafloor® Earthing Kit, a conductor system comprising copper earthing tapes and points, was installed. A layer of Sikafloor®-220W anti-static primer was added, and once cured, the flooring was finished with Sikafloor®-262AS to a nominal thickness of 2mm.
