The Epoxy Surface Plate will become an
irreplaceable set-up tool that makes your shop complete while allowing for all your
other set-up tools to perform as they should. No more using that 'level enough'
spot on your floor with location marks to try and achieve accuracy or wondering
if it is time to adjust that steel plate again. The Epoxy
Surface Plate eliminates any and all guess work by providing a perfectly level
and perfectly flat floor surface all the time.
We are talking 'Dead
Level' (0.003 of an inch or better) not just close. With the Floor Plate Epoxies
FP-85 and FP-80, simply pour into a framed out area of any size to produce an
exactly level floor or table top surface. Scaling, ride heights, suspension
geometry and body work are all performed better on a level surface, index with
complete accuracy at any point on the surface plate plane. The 3-pour design of
the Pro Epoxy Surface Plate can have any type of graphics, vinyl decals or
reference points laminated between the color coat and final clear coat pour.
Create that personal touch with a team logo. Wheeled objects are easily rolled
on and off the plate working area with the troweled Santex border ramped from
the surface plate plane to the original floor in a matching or contrasting
color. The Epoxy Surface Plate can be installed on top of the concrete
substrate, flush with the concrete substrate, with scales flush in the
plate or as apart of a hydraulic or mechanical lift system.
The Epoxy Surface Plate has superior flatness and cosmetics for a
fraction of the cost over steel plates, and unlike steel plates, will not flex
with temperature or sag under their own weight. Steel plates have to be
constantly adjusted to try and maintain level. Once the Epoxy Surface Plate is
installed, it will never need adjusting, it will always stay
level. In order to get a steel plate that comes even
close to the accuracy of the Epoxy Plate, you would need a piece that is 10' x
20' and 2 inches thick (weighing in at over 16,000 pounds). The steel plate
would need to be machined on the top side by a source with a large enough Blanchard Grinder. Then the steel plate is delivered to your door. Now
you have to decide on the grid size and drill threaded holes at each grid point,
install adjusting jack bolts and start adjusting until you are satisfied with
the plate's levelness. Finally you weld on your skirts or ramps and start using
the steel plate until it has to be adjusted again.
Our standard Pro Epoxy Surface
Plate installations are 'Turn Key' projects from start to finish. Everything is
included for one price from floor prep to completed plate ready to use. The
Epoxy Surface Plate has a compressive strength of 13,500 psi with a Shore D hardness of 85. The Epoxy Surface Plate can be installed on
top of the concrete substrate, flush with the concrete substrate, with scales
flush in the plate or as a part of a hydraulic or mechanical lift system.
