UV resistant, high-gloss epoxy casting resin
Manchester Jewish Museum, Manchester, UK

the challenge

A high gloss, UV resistant and easily cleaned epoxy casting resin that could be used to seal a giant map into the surface of the floor, ensuring a trafficable surface that would protect the graphic beneath from both footfall and dirt tracked underfoot. 

meet the client

Manchester’s historic Jewish Museum has reopened with a brand new extension that has been almost a decade in planning.

The museum, located in Cheetham Hill aims to take visitors on a journey through the city’s rich and diverse Jewish history. It tells the stories of the Jewish people and communities of Manchester; their journeys, the communities they formed, and the diverse identities they represent.

the project

The floor, located in the main atrium of the museum, features a giant map documenting historic Jewish landmarks that were once located across the city, home to the UK’s second largest Jewish community. 

The client required a clear epoxy casting resin that could be installed at 2.0 mm in order to seal and protect the graphic as well as sit flush with the surrounding wooden floor. 

Vebro’s solution

Vebro Polymers’ epoxy casting resin, vebro EP Cast has been expertly installed by Leevan Flooring.

vebro EP Cast is a premium quality, solvent-free clear epoxy resin coating designed specifically to produce a super-smooth, hard-wearing, high-gloss surface for decorative applications.

The product can be applied by suitable hand squeegee, metal spatula / steel float and floor paint rollers.

vebro EP Cast can be installed between 2.0 – 4.0 mm thick. 

This resin material incorporates special UV stabilising additives – not found in more general-purpose clear epoxy systems – which means vebro EP Cast cures with a near-perfect smooth, glossy surface when applied to suitable substrates which enhances and protects the look of the decorative inclusions under the resin. 

The client was delighted with the resulting finish and professional installation by the Leevan Flooring team.
