All said and done, the life of the floor is under your control. The better the floor is maintained, the longer the floor coating system lasts which inturn saves money in the long run.

Correct Maintenance = Increased Durability

AB-ZEROPOX and AB-ZEROPUR industrial flooring systems are used in various situations where mechanical, chemical, thermal and impact resistance properties are required. Apart from these performance characteristics there are often major requirements concerning the aesthetic appeal of the surface. It is therefore important that an appropriate regime of maintenance should be adopted for floor in order to get the maximum performance from it. When you purchase a new car, it is not uncommon for you to clean and maintain or polish the bodywork using an array of polishes and lacquers; well a professional floor coating system is exactly the same or no different. Any minor damage should be repaired as soon as possible and the floor should also be cleaned on a regular basis, and then on a periodic basis re-coated with a surface protection agent. These procedures will increase the durability, service life and appearance of the flooring system.

  1. Avoid dirt
    The cleaning frequency and intensity depends on use. Dirt that is removed at entrances and doorways cannot contaminate the general floor surfaces, thus there will be a decrease in cleaning costs and an increase in service life. The use of special cleaning grids and mats can help to reduce dirt the content and contamination. Cleaning areas should be planned and thought through prior to the construction of e. g. production plants.

    Abrasive dirt contamination collected in these areas = Increased floor life span.

    Do not use preservation agents that leave a film on antistatic / conductive industrial flooring systems e.g. cleaning agents that contain wax, as the conductive properties will diminish. We recommend only the use of neutral or slightly alkaline (pH 9 - 10) cleaning agents for these systems. We highly recommend that a specialist cleaning contractor is contacted in this regard.

  2. Floor maintenance (first time)
    When a new flooring system has been applied and properly cured (usually 5 - 7 days) it is important that it should receive a protective polish / sealer in order to keep surface damage to a minimum. If properly applied, the polish / sealer will offer additional surface protection and facilitate general maintenance and cleaning activities. Your cleaning contractor can advise you.

    Removal of dirt is easier = Cost reduction

    1. Regular maintenance system
      Loose dirt and gravel should whenever possible be removed immediately in order to avoid it spreading to other areas; this is best achieved by using a wet cloth / sponge. Depending on what the floor is used for, special floor cleaners should be used as often as required in order to maintain the aesthetics e. g. daily / weekly / monthly.

    2. Intermediate cleaning system
      Intermediate cleaning should be done by using the appropriate vacuum equipment, and to clean the floor more thoroughly, use water in combination with suitable cleaning pads, this will help to avoid mechanical damage and abrasion. Persistent or heavy local contamination should be removed by using a professional concentrated cleaning agent, however, follow the instructions for use carefully.

  3. Reconditioning cleaning system
    This process involves the complete removal of the original protective film that was applied after the application of the flooring system, (see 1 above) plus any subsequent contamination, and then reapply the protective film / coat as before. The frequency of this process will obviously depend upon the area of application and the degree of dirt and contamination. The removal of the old protective film is processed by using an industrial cleaning machine equipped with non-abrasive - pads or brushes, also proprietary cleaning aids. Using only clean water, it must then be washed and rinsed and allowed to thoroughly dry. Apply the new polish / sealer.

    After each reconditioning cleaning, a new sealer / protective film must always be applied!

  4. Epoxy flooring surfaces
    In certain conditions, epoxy based flooring systems over a period of time develop a white film on the surface. This is known as a carbamate effect, and is caused by the presence of moisture and is not always immediately obvious. It has no affect on the technical performance characteristics of the material. This visual white film may be removed by using weak acidic cleaners e. g. acetic acid based cleaners.
