Broadcast flooring systems are the result of combining thin-film rollcoats with a broadcast material – sand and aluminium oxide for functional non-slip floors, or, flake and coloured quartz for more decorative applications. These types of floors range from medium through to heavy-duty, and have a total dry film thickness anywhere between 500-3000 microns/20-120 mils.
Key Learning Outcomes
