  • Which coating should I specify for my car park? Part 1 | Flowcrete Australia
    will need to be replaced sooner than a two pack system 2 Ensure the two pack system is 100 solids Two pack 100 solids solvent free systems are created to withstand the high traffic environment of a car park By choosing a 100 solids system you are ensuring that the product has not been thinned out with solvent If you had 1ltr of a 100 solids coating and 1lt of a 70 solids coating laid over the same area the 100 solids coating would be approx 30 thicker than the 70 system Unlike a 100 solids system a 70 solids system has been diluted with solvent This solvent will evaporate and leave you with a weaker thinner floor coating on your car park Similar to the problems that arise from a single pack system the initial expenditure outlay of a less than 100 solids system will be lower however this floor will not stand up to the heavy traffic demands of a car park and the maintenance costs will be significantly increased 3 Check the supplier s product data on their recommended system In the world of floor coatings one product does not fit all environments Ensure that the supplier s product data specifies that the system is a car park system not a product that can be used on car parks workshops and factories Each individual environment has specific requirements and the flooring system should be specific to the environment s operating conditions If your car park facility is exposed to the elements ensure that the product you select contains UV Resistant properties to protect your car park floor from fading discolouration or breakdown If your want to ensure your car park facility is a safe environment for visitors be sure to consider the effects of poor weather Tyres

  • Why should I consider putting a protective coating on a car park floor? Part 3 | Flowcrete Australia
    Transform Protect Why should I consider putting a protective coating on a car park floor Part 3 Here Sean Tinsley explains how a resin car park deck coating can help to improve safety Anti Slip High quality coatings can incorporate anti slip aggregates and to meet local regulations significantly reducing the owners risk and liability The degree of anti slip can be tailored to the requirements of the owners or facility management Light Reflection This is particularly important in basement car parks which historically have been very poorly lit High quality coatings should possess light reflective properties and provide a gloss finish which would significantly improve the overall lighting of a car park The glossy nature of the coating allows the light to bounce off the floor surface creating better lighting than an untreated concrete Drainage Ponding or Pooling is the result of water ingress in car parks When water penetrates concrete structure damage can occur including cracking and corrosion of the reinforcing steel This can turn a car park into a dangerous safety hazard In order to avoid this pooling effect within a facility falls gradients and specialist drainage systems should be incorporated into a facility design Click here

  • Why should I consider putting a protective coating on a car park floor? Part 2 | Flowcrete Australia
    Part 2 Next up Sean Tinsley gives us the lowdown on how functional resin decking systems are Staining Solvent free 100 solids coatings are impervious and offer high chemical resistance so any car fluids will not stain or mark the surface of a coating In comparison uncoated concrete will mark and stain very easily as concrete is porous Once the fluids have penetrated the surface they are almost impossible to remove leaving unsightly staining particular on a car park bays where oils can leak from the cars Ease of Clean and Lower Maintenance Using Bare concrete exhibits dust which is significantly increased when trafficked The dust is then picked up by cars and pedestrians and transported around the car park and into adjoining areas For commercial car parks offices and shopping centres this dirt picked up from the car park to the shopping centre can significantly increase the cleaning within the area High quality coatings are non dusting and offer a surface which is significantly easier to clean and maintain Liquid spills can easily be removed with a mop and bucket dust and general debris can be easily removed with a simply scrubber offering the car park operators and owners

  • What are the main considerations when specifying a protective coating for an external car parking deck? | Flowcrete Australia
    water proof and elastomeric deck coating system which is double the thickness of those used on intermediate or lower decks is recommended Here Sean Tinsley Managing Director for Flowcrete Australia one of the country s leading experts in car park surfacing and flooring design talks us through the main factors to consider when specifying coating materials for top decks UV Resistance It is non negotiable that any system used to surface a top deck environment must offer UV resistance Without this the flooring material will fade dis colour or even breakdown Polyurethane systems perform much better than epoxy based coating on the top deck they are tougher more resistant and offer a significantly better service life Slip Resistance Safety within a car park environment is paramount slippery floor coating materials can lead to accidents and or injury An anti skid and slip resistant system that either meets or exceeds The Australian New Zealand Standard ASNZ 4586 is recommended Crack Bridging Properties Car parking structures are constructed with large clear spans that have minimal supporting columns in order to achieve the maximum number of parked vehicles This means they are susceptible to flexing and moving like no other building Flexible crack bridging polyurethane coatings are recommended for top deck environments in order to prevent fractures and damage to the surface Water Resistance When it rains it can pour and there is no shelter for exposed top levels of multi storey car park buildings In order to prevent water ingress into the concrete slab impermeable and watertight polyurethane coatings are once again recommended to provide a waterproof solution Environmental Considerations Innovations in flooring technology have seen many environmental improvements to polyurethane coating systems for top deck car park installations Many systems are now solvent free low in VOC content and come backed
