Duracrete Broadcast System - 2-4mm
High-Build, Abrasion-Resistant Broadcasted Epoxy Flooring System
Description

Duracrete Broadcast System is a high build, heavy duty, single colour, aggregate filled epoxy flooring system designed to protect concrete floors from heavy wear, impact, abrasion and mild chemicals in institutional, commercial and industrial environments. Installed at 80-120 mils (2-3mm), Duracrete Broadcast System offers excellent abrasion resistance for demanding floor areas. 

Advantages
  • High performance durable floor
  • Easy and quick to install
  • 100% solids, zero VOC
  • Will not support growth of fungus or bacteria
  • Excellent abrasion and slip resistance
  • Easy to clean and to maintain
  • CFIA Approved & USDA compliant for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants
Uses

Duracrete Broadcast System is used to protect concrete which will be exposed to heavy mechanical abuse and mild chemical attack while providing aggressive slip resistance for added safety. It is best used for heavy traffic industrial, commercial and industrial flooring applications where high abrasion resistance and durability is required. Duracrete Broadcast System is ideal for high traffic areas and corridors, garbage rooms, production and assembly floors, heavy duty manufacturing, food processing plants, shower rooms, lockers, service bays and warehouse floors where protection from mechanical abuse is desired and chemical exposure is limited.
