Floor finishes for wholesale meat, fish, fruit and vegetables need to have the following characteristics:
We recommend a through-coloured polyurethane (PU) thin screed laid at 6-9mm. Suitable products include:
Resuthane TG69 a three part polyurethane screed laid at 6-9mm. It has a textured matt finish that has good slip-resistance even when wet. Extremely durable and hard wearing, suitable for very heavy duty situations. Before laying the subfloor must be prepared in accordance with the technical datasheet recommendations and primed with Resuprime, or Resuprime DPM if there is moisture within the slab. It comes in a range of standard colours, colour chart. It is extremely robust and can be jet washed down to clean it if required. When laid at 9mm it has good resistance to thermal shock and can be steam cleaned if required.
Resuthane JT40 is a coving grade resin screed used to create seamless integral resin skirtings around the perimeter of Resuthane TG69 floor screeds. The usual profile created using a coving trowel is 150mm up wall, 100mm base with a full 90° radius. First, prepare surfaces and prime with Resutack PU. Once the JT40 has been applied it should be coated with Resuthane T100 to seal and provide full chemical resistance.
Resujoint V is a through-coloured jointing compound to fill joints in the resin screed, available in the same standard colours as Resuthane TG69. Joints in the resin screed are required where there are joints in the concrete floor below.

Before laying a resin floor screed it is important to repair any damage to the concrete subfloor to ensure a smooth finish. Resupatch can be applied from feather-edge up to 50mm, or 100mm in built up in two layers. It is impact and abraisoin resistant and can be subjected to heavy traffic, making it ideal for a busy wholesale meat, vegetable, fruit or flower market.
We can also supply dust-proofing sealers, binders, injection resins for cracked concrete, joint repairs, joint sealants and a whole host of materials for different types of concrete repairs. Call us on 01925852225 for advice.
