The original floor was far from ideal, in addition to repairs, some of the areas of
the floor were made up from wooden floor boards as shown below. These needed
to be overlaid using 15mm marine ply fixed every 150 centres, this would bring the
floor level and accept the application of the system.
This Arturo selfsmoothing floor not only
looks spectacular, but
also provides good
Here is where the floor
boards were originally,
our team advised that
fitting marine ply and
mechanically fixing this
every 150 centres was
the best solution to
achieve the desired floor.
In addition to the repairs, the existing surface was prepared by use of a three-phase
Innovatech mechanical grinding machine, fitted with a vacuum unit with self-sealed
extraction bags to minimize dust.
This area shows where
further repairs were made
using resin bulk to level the
floor, ready for application
of the primer and coating.
Here’s an image of the
floor, once preparation has
been completed and before
primer is applied.
Once the floor was prepared and repairs made where needed using resin bulk, we
applied a solvent-free, two-component, epoxy-based Arturo primer. This was followed
by Arturo PU3320, a coloured, two-component, water-borne, polyurethane based
satin floor finish. To meet the clients needs we then applied Arturo PU 7900 to the top
floor to give a gloss finish.
This shows the top floor
once Arturo EP 6500
primer was applied.

This project had lots of obstacles, with all different contractors on site at the same time
wanting access to all areas, our team had to communicate with various groups to ensure the
floor wasn’t contaminated and cured correctly, leading to a timely completion. Special thanks
to Arturo for speedy delivery and high quality products.

preparation, repair and
primer stages had been
PU3320 applied to give
this satin finish.
“You guys are stars, thank you so much! Massively appreciated.”
