The Flowcrete Australia Peran Kristalina epoxy resin floor finishes were chosen for the flooring of the sales and information hub located in the Sydney Oran Park Raceway that is currently under redevelopment. The raceway is predicted to create a complete community for an estimated 50,000 to 100,000 people over the next 20 years and the sales and information point for the public is housed in a central building on the Greenfield site.
The developers wanted a flooring finish that would have the capacity to withstand considerable pedestrian traffic but that simultaneously enhanced the aesthetic and required minimum maintenance. The main walk zones and café area also needed flooring that would be easy to clean.
After initially considering polished concrete, the specialist resin floor finishes from Flowcrete were chosen. These epoxy resin systems were formulated in a special blend of colours to deliver a look that simulated polished concrete but with a consistent blend of aggregates and also capable of handling any dry shrinkage cracking in the underlying slab.
The eco-friendly resin floor finishes are solvent-free and low in VOC emissions. Following installation of the Peran Kristalina, the floor was coated with a water-based polyurethane sealer in a satin finish.
