MaxFlo 100 – High gloss Epoxy floor coating
Maxflo 100 – High gloss epoxy floor coating is formulated using the latest 100% solids, solvent-free epoxy resins. When mixed, the product is simple to apply with a brush or roller.
After curing MaxFlo 100 has a tough and easily cleaned high gloss finish that is resistant to a wide range of chemicals. With the addition of an aggregate, the product is suitable for a range of anti-slip options.
Once cured the product provides following characteristics:
- Range of colours

- Allow for curing
- Inspect the coating for any pinholes or misses and repair where necessary
Surface Preparation steel
Degrease the repair area with MEK or similar solvent to remove any surface contamination, using angular grit, grit-blast to SO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) and a minimum blast profile of 75 microns.
Once blast cleaned, the surface must be dust free and cleaned again using MEK or similar solvent. All surfaces must be repaired or coated before oxidation or gingering occurs.
Surface preparation concrete
Concrete shall be a minimum of 21 days old and/or the residual moisture content shall be below 6%. Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, grease, oil, curing compound and existing paint finishes etc. Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using a proprietary repair compound e.g. MaxCrete 200 concrete repair mortar.
Block work shall be sealed using MaxPrime 100 surface sealer/ primer . Suitable mechanical treatment such as vacuum grit blasting is the preferred treatment prior to application as this ensures a mechanical ‘key’ for the coating.
Pour the contents of the activator container into the base container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform colour is achieved. for small quantities us a mixing ratio of:
2:1 by weight
Application Base Coat
Apply by brush, roller or airless spray at a nominal rate of 0.25 to 0.3kg/m². After a minimum of 14 hours and before a maximum of 48 hours, apply a second coat at the
same rate. Should a non-slip finish be required, then broadcast an appropriate aggregate such as Quartz, immediately after the first coat. Brush off excess aggregate the following day, prior to applying the second coat.
Usable life at 20°C
Minimum – the applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is touch dry.
Maximum – over-coating time 36 hours.
