A combination of UZIN and Arturo products was used to refurbish the old asphalt galley floors of the Royal Air Force Museum London.
The museum is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force through a major transformation and launch of three new innovative galleries.
A substantial subfloor preparation was required to create a suitable surface on which to install the new resin floor. The new floor also needed to withstand a large amount of footfall and heavy loads of the exhibits. Creating a strong, robust and a completely seamless floor was therefore paramount.
Remedial work to the old asphalt was carried out using a combination of UZIN PE 414 Turbo damp proof membrane, UZIN PE 280 primer, FM 30 industrial top and RR 201 repair fleece. Arturo EP3600 water based coating and Arturo EP3900 high-build coating and Arturo PU7750 matt seal coat were then used for the surface protection, creating excellent abrasion resistance as well as building the fighter jet grey colour into the floor.
The resulting floor is extremely tough and sturdy, allowing for thousands of visitors to walk through the museum each year.
The resin floor has a number of practical benefits and is very easy to clean and maintain. The seamless appearance of the floor also helps create an expansive space so the exhibits standout and are showcased.
