Reepol has a variety of products that can apply a clear concrete seal coat onto a surface. Epoxy and polyurethane sealers add high build protection and are suitable for use on concrete floors. Sealants can provide a clear high gloss, easy maintenance, finish over concrete that captures any decorative aspects or that enhances the appearance of plain concrete.
Reepol have a wide range of priming products that are suitable for the application of epoxy, polyurethane and MMA systems and which can enhance the bond or act as a barrier to problematic substrates. Sealants are clear and any colour is provided in a floor paint applied over the sealant or from the concrete surfaces beneath the sealant.
Reeprime EWD300 is a water dispersed, two part epoxy bonding and sealing system. Because it is solvent free, it is safe to use in areas containing foodstuffs. It provides excellent adhesion with high mortar strength. It cures easily at low temperatures and in addition to having good penetration, it is an excellent sealer.
Ideal for use with Reepol’s range of Reepol CBP products, EWD300 provides the necessary adhesion to concrete. It adheres to dry or damp substrates and has the dual service factor of being a good general sealer for concrete, plaster, asbestos, wood, sand and cement rendering as well as a primer. If Reeprime EWD300 is being applied to existing concrete, repair any damaged areas with a Reepare Mortar first.
Reeprime CPS900 is a solvent based epoxy sealer primarily used as a conductive layer under anti static coatings, self smoothing systems, and wall coatings. Our antistatic products are ideal for environments that may experience a build-up of static electricity and should be applied in conjunction with Reeprime CPS conductive primer.
As well as having a very high chemical resistance, this anti static flooring system disperses static electricity and is dust free. Like all epoxy flooring, it is seamless and hard wearing. When Reeprime CPS900 is cured, safety warning signs should be placed in the area as it is highly electrically conductive. These signs warning of the conductivity should remain in place until the finished surface is approved for use.
Another sealer is Reeprime ES300. It is an epoxy solvent sealer that offers a clear sealing coat for concrete, epoxy screeds and wood floors or as a dust proofing chemical resistant coating. The substrate needs to be clean and Reeprime ES300 is applied by roller or brush. It is important to ensure total coverage without over-applying the product or allowing it to puddle. If a second coat is applied, it is essential that the first coat is tack free. Otherwise, the second coat could cause solvent entrapment.
Reeglaze EC018 LV is a solvent free heavy duty epoxy sealer that is very hard wearing and a good choice for kitchens, food areas, and dairies where a hygienic sealer is required. It is sufficiently hard wearing for a garage floor, service bays and factory gangways. It is applied by roller or brush and a second coat may be applied within 24 hours of the first. If the concrete surface is very porous concrete, a third coat may be required.
Reeseal TG700 is another choice of sealer. It’s a thixotropic floor seal ideal for grouting quartz screeds systems. Being thixotropic, Reeseal TG700 is a high viscosity liquid that penetrates well as the thick product thins and flows to cover the flooring thoroughly.

Industrial floor paint can meet a variety of requirements whether they are safety or management-preferred requirements such as the colour and design of a floor surface. It is one thing to know that an anti slip floor is essential. It is another thing to determine how much anti slip factor is necessary. This can range from slip resistant to a highly abrasive surface.
Before you buy floor paint, consider what results you want. Whether it is garage floor paint or a painted factory floor surface, whether it is to be applied over a new concrete floor or a refurbished surface, a Reepol expert can advise you on the ideal flooring system.
Any of our epoxy resin floor paint can be customised to meet your needs. It can be a water dispersable floor paint such as Reecote EC015 or a solvent based epoxy resin floor paint such as Reecote EC014. Reepol’s industrial floor paints & coatings can be made chemical resistant and heat resistant. They can also have gradations of slip resistance qualities as well as decorative finishes. As for line marking paints, Reecote EC017 W/F is recommended. It is a solvent free epoxy wall coating.
One primary factor for many industrial and commercial businesses is downtime. Any floor application does take time with the cleaning, curing, and drying time. The nature of epoxy resin is that it is a chemical reaction that begins to set in less than an hour in most cases. Touch dry after around 12 hrs, the typical Reepol paint will be ready for a second coat in less than 24 hours.
All products come with data sheets that provide details on the necessary tools & primers and where it is suitable for use. For example, Reecote EC015 comes in a two-pack epoxy floor paint package. Component A weighs 4.8 Kg and Component B weighs 1.0 Kg providing a coverage area of approx 168g/m2. Of course, the exact coverage varies from floor to floor.
Reecote EC014 comes in a similar package. The pack has a different weight in the components because the components are different as they yield a different floor coating – dust free, chemical and abrasion resistant – than EC015. Reecote EC014 is a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents, mineral fillers and solvent. Reecote EC015 is solvent free and can be thinned with water. It’s not flammable, is odour free and suitable for application onto damp surfaces.
Regardless of the painted factory floor surface, Reepol have the solution. Reepol’s R & D department constantly strives to come up with innovative floor paint solutions such as Reetop P1200 which is ideal for heavy industrial and commercial environments. It combines aggregates, cement, and acrylic resins.
Any flooring application should begin with a free, no obligation, site survey. A Reepol flooring specialist can provide advice on the repair and preparation of the substrate, whether a primer or sealer is needed, whether a high gloss or matt finish should be selected, how many coats need to be applied, and the best maintenance approach to take.

Reepol’s floor covering flexibility comes from the chemical ability for additives to be absorbed during the creation of the epoxy. This allows for a variety of mechanical properties to be added to the epoxy such as resistance to high temperatures, UV and chemicals. Quartz aggregates, coloured aggregates, PVA flakes, aluminium oxide or even rubber can provide high low-slip and anti static properties as well as the ability to resist impact and staining. Such flooring solutions are always under development in the laboratory.

Resin flooring has a reputation for being durable, hygienic, safe for the environment, and easy to clean. This is where it begins. Beyond these great intrinsic features, any epoxy resin floor can be formulated to add extra protection and special safety or health-centric features such low-slip finishes.
In spite of the ideal nature of epoxy resin flooring for industrial and commercial areas, it does not have to be utilitarian. Reepol are able to meet the needs of any architectural design when it comes to providing attractive floors with our CQ & Reeflec ranges.
These are solvent free decorative epoxy finishes, which consists of the finest epoxy resin, Quartz aggregates and colourful decorative flakes. Reegrip CQ consists of Reeprime, Reebond FC100, coloured quartz and Reeseal TG600. You can apply a top sealer such as solvent-based polyurethane systems Reeseal SM100 or SG100 but it’s an optional choice.
SM100 is a matt system and SG100 is a glossy system. They have excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and outstanding light and weather stability.
Another CQ product is Reetop CQ3000, a trowel applied decorative epoxy screed that is a combination of selected hard wearing coloured quartz aggregates, solvent free epoxy resins, and curing agents. Its qualities include its abrasion and chemical resistance. It is slip resistant, fast curing, and comes in either a matt or gloss finish. Reeseal TG600 should be used for the first sealer. A second sealer, either Reeseal SM100 or SG100, is recommended.
Reeflec EC017 is another choice of decorative floor finishing. It is a decorative seamless wall and floor system achieved by the combination of Reecote EC017, various sized colourful acrylic flakes and clear seal coats. It is a decorative coating ideal where a high-build, hard-wearing, hygienic, coating system is required. It’s excellent for reception areas, kitchens, toilets laboratories and hospitals. This flooring should be sealed with Reeseal SG100 or SM100. Another coating choice is Reeflec EL002 SF, which is a self-levelling system similar to Reeflec EC017.
Our decorative flooring systems come in standard colours, which offer a wide range of colour choices. However, other colours are available on request.
Before applying any of Reepol’s epoxy finishes, proper floor preparation and floor repairs must be carried out. Substrates need to be clean and free from any agent that may impair adhesion. Our data sheets provide specific details for each product.
There is a difference in the requirements between sectors. Warehouse floor painting, sports floor paint, food preparation duty areas, and a garage flooring system have differences in their needs. In all cases, it is essential to identify flooring hazards and if needed, Reepol can provide line-marking solutions.
Talk to one of Reepol’s specialists for specific information and recommendations for your industry. Industrial flooring problems are part of the program and our experts can suggest the best flooring solution for various situations such as, for example, where being safe from slip and trip is a major factor.

Self-levelling resin floors are a very popular kind of epoxy flooring. This is no surprise because they are so smooth. They are called self-levelling because when the epoxy resin is applied, it spreads out into a level, smooth finish. An epoxy resin that is applied with a squeegee or roller tends to have a rougher finish. The completely smooth resin floor gives an overall larger and fresher appearance.
The seamless flooring is more hygienic because bacteria can’t get trapped in the seams which makes it ideal for areas sensitive to bacteria such as food preparation areas. Neither can dirt. Without seams trapping and holding dirt and debris, cleaning is so much easier. There is something that needs to be clarified about self-levelling floors. Don’t let the name fool you. Self-levelling resin will not level out an uneven substrate. The floor coating will be at maximum thickness not much more than 4 mm, depending on the product you use. It could be only 1 mm thick and this will not level out a bumpy substrate.
Look into using our standard resin screeds if the floor is extremely rough and bumpy. Among those ideal for this application are our Polyurethane screeds such as Reetop PU009 F.G, which is a heavy duty, trowel applied, fine textured screed, applied at a thickness of 6mm and 9mm, and Reetop ES008, a solvent free screed trowel applied to a thickness of 5mm to 10mm.
Primers and floor sealers can prevent problems with the flooring by preparing the cement before applying the coating. Reeprime EP550 is a moisture tolerant primer good for creating a damp proof floor. Its strength is as a primer creating good adhesion for poor quality concrete, strengthening it prior to the application of epoxy, urethane and MMA systems. It acts as a moisture barrier under moisture sensitive systems. It’s a clear coating over concrete. Reepol RBS80 is a cost effective general use binder that can be used as a concrete primer and sealer, for mortars and screeds, scratch topping, filling compounds, machinery bedding grouts, and binder for bulking prior to the application of finish toppings.
Our Reeflor range relates to our self-levelling products and they have been carefully formulated to achieve the desired thickness. They are self-smoothing, hygienic, hardwearing, solvent free, and have good chemical resistance.
Reeflor EL1001 is suitable for use where a hard wearing, dust free, hygienic, easy clean floor topping is required such as industrial or commercial floors, laboratories, car showrooms, and gangways. It is a blend of epoxy resins, curing agents and selected fine minerals. Easily mixed, it provides a 1mm (minimum) floor topping. The floor should be primed by Reeprime EP550 OR Reepol RBS80.
Reeflor EL002-SF is suitable for the same use as Reeflor EL 1001 and should be applied over the same priming material as Reeflor EL 1001. It is a thicker floor topping with a thickness of 1.5- 4.5 mm. It is ideal for industrial or commercial floors, laboratories, showrooms, schools, and plant rooms. It provides a 4 mm (minimum) floor topping. The surface should be primed with Reeprime EP800.
If the substrate is damaged, before the primer and sealer and the coating is applied the damaged areas should be repaired with a Reepare mortar.
Our self-levelling coatings are easy to clean and decorative. Colours can be matched to any Pantone, RAL, or BS4800 colour families. Reepol offers a free site survey.
