a.b.e.® abeflo epoxy self-levelling flooring system was selected for new flooring at the Land Rover dealership workshop in Hillcrest, Durban.

a.b.e.® is part of the Chryso Southern Africa Group.

Brad Hunt, a.b.e.® Technical Sales Consultant based in Durban, says abeflo was applied in 2mm thickness over a floor area of about 800sq m at the Land Rover premises by a.b.e.-approved applicator, Duraco. The selected colours were Medium Sea Grey and Div Grey.

abeflo, which has been widely used throughout Southern Africa, is a four-component solvent-free self-levelling flooring surface system. It comprises a clear resin and hardener, pre-packed blended aggregate and a ready-for-use pigment paste.

Hunt says seamless abeflo complies to high hygiene standards as it does not produce crevices to accommodate bacteria. “abeflo produces a medium gloss finish with strong colour retention. It is particularly suitable for areas such as showrooms, hospitals, schools, kitchens, factories, laboratories, canteens, supermarkets and garages.”

abeflo surfaces, furthermore, in addition to offering exceptional protective qualities are resistant to chemicals, water, oils, fats, greases, diesel, mineral acids and alkalis.  Shrinkage after curing is negligible.

abeflo has been the selected flooring product in several other motor showrooms and workshops including Toyota and BMW dealerships in Durban as well as MF Autobody Panelbeaters in Boksburg. The product was also used for flooring at the Kraft Foods plant in Port Elizabeth where top hygienic flooring was of paramount importance.
