FAQs

How safe is Epoxy Resin to use?

While most resin is generally safe to use when applied correctly, in order to avoid possible skin irritation, we always recommend that you use personal protection gear and follow strict Application Guidelines, as well as adhere to recommended Health and Safety advice. For more information and advice, please consult Technical Product Data sheets.

How much resin do I need?

When purchasing any epoxy resin, we always recommend purchasing a little extra to account for possible surface variations (if your floor is uneven, bumpy or old concrete) and wastage.

How should I apply epoxy resin?

We recommend that you use specially made epoxy resin roller for application, in order to avoid regular roller fibres sticking to your epoxy floor surface.  For further application instructions, please refer to Technical Product Data Sheets.

I’m in a rush to finish my project, what are my options?

If your newly laid concrete floor is taking too long to dry and you cannot/do not wish to wait for it to cure completely, we advise that you use our DPM Primer before applying Epoxy Resin. DPM Primer allows the resin stick properly, enabling you to finish your floor on time even when it is not fully dry*

*Please note that different moisture counts require different number of primer coats.  If moisture content is greater than 85%, DPM Primer is not recommended.

Alternatively, you can purchase resin from our Fast Cure range, which is able to speed up the floor's rate of cure, making it an excellent choice for: refurbishment projects, shop-fit-outs or even fast-paced new build developments and allows for newly laid resin flooring systems to be fully serviceable in times as fast as two hours.

My epoxy resin is taking too long to cure. How can I speed it up?

The only way to speed the cure of our epoxy resin products once they've been applied, is to heat the room or the area that your project is in.

Why has my epoxy coated floor turned yellow?

Over time, ultra violet (UV) light causes unprotected epoxy to turn a yellow colour and degrade. To avoid this, the epoxied surface should be coated with either paint or varnish. As well as protecting the surface, the varnish can also improve the look of the surface.

Can you get a UV stable epoxy?

Some of our epoxy resins contain a UV inhibitor which protects and helps to slow down the effects of UV damage. If you are concerned about UV degradation, we recommend that you protect the epoxy from UV with specially recommended varnish or paint.
